Alton Frailey, the 33 year public education veteran, announced in a letter to the Katy community that he would be retiring at the end of this school year.
The retirement letter was sent to students, parents, and employees in Katy ISD. It is with a heavy heart Katy says good bye and good luck to our superintendent.
“The remarkable level of District and community support I have experienced while at Katy ISD is something most superintendents can only hope for during their tenures as educational leaders,” Frailey wrote.
Frailey was at the helm of our school system for nine years. During his time Katy ISD rose in the rankings of the Texas Education Association. Under his watch Katy reached the highest attainable tanking by the TEA. Katy ISD is such a powerhouse of a school district that many people flock to the area for the schools and lovely Katy real estate.
Frailey began his time as an educator in Goose Creek ISD. During his career he rose and was superintendent to more than just Katy ISD. He also led Desoto ISD as well.
There is no word of who will be replacing Alton Frailey as of yet. One thing is for sure, they will have very large shoes to fill.
