La Vernia names ‘super’ finalist
Dr. José Moreno
Dr. José H. Moreno is the choice for the top job in the La Vernia Independent School District (ISD).
Moreno, currently assistant superintendent of leadership with the San Antonio ISD, was named April 9, during a special meeting of the La Vernia trustees.
According to state law, the district will wait 21 days before Moreno, 42, can be named officially as superintendent. He will replace Dr. Tom Harvey, who resigned last fall. Filling in on an interim basis is Linda Bettin, formerly the superintendent in the Falls City ISD.
The district’s selection process included input from the community via surveys and meetings.
“Ultimately, we believe that Dr. Moreno is an excellent match to the qualifications and characteristics desired by our community in our next superintendent,” said Dr. Cody Miller, school board president. “The collaboration among the board members and community is something which we are very proud of.”
Moreno is responsible for 29 campuses in San Antonio. He has been a classroom teacher, education consultant, principal, and senior executive director for curriculum and instruction in his 18 years of experience.
The superintendent finalist earned his Bachelor of Science in applied learning and development with a bilingual/ESL certification from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Science in educational administration from Texas A&M University-Kingsville. He holds a doctorate of educational leadership from Lamar University.
Moreno will move to La Vernia with his wife, Regina, and two children, Bianca and José III.
