Frailey Part of Panel at Superintendents Academy

Nacogdoches ISD interim Superintendent Alton Frailey will be on a discussion panel Friday during the Urban Superintendents Academy Conference in Alexandria, Va.

The discussion titled, “Critical Issues Facing Modern Urban Superintendents,” includes Frailey, who is the past president of the AASA, The School Superintendents Association; Sharon Adams-Taylor, Associate Executive Director of Children’s Programs for AASA; Donna Harris Akin, National Education Association; and Verjeana Jacobs, Chief Equity & Member Services Officer, National School Boards Association.

The panel wraps up the day-long conference being hosted by AASA at Howard University. This is the fourth year the group has held an Urban Superintendents Academy Conference.

The academy prepares individuals for certification and success in urban and increasingly diverse suburban settings and bolsters the effectiveness of district leadership in those settings.

A number of speakers are planned for the day, including Michael Hinojosa, Dallas ISD superintendent, whose keynote address will precede the panel discussion involving Frailey.

Frailey, a Nacogdoches County native and Stephen F. Austin State University graduate, came to NISD in April as interim superintendent after retiring in 2016 as school chief at Katy ISD. He has also served as superintendent of schools in DeSoto, near Dallas, and in Cincinnati, Ohio.
