Grenita Lathan Salary: Dr. Grenita Lathan of Houston ISD found a permanent job for superintendents following another demanding school year as head of the state’s largest district.. Lathan said at a press-conference on Monday afternoon: “I accepted a new position at Springfield Public School in Springfield, Missouri. “I have learned a lot and look forward to the lessons I have learned here to Springfield.” Springfield Public Schools states that Lathan will be the first woman superintendent and first person of colour to have the unanimous support of his school board. Lathan will be the first person to serve. This is a lot different from what she has recently received from a majority.
It is far from what she received recently from a majority of the HISD board, who voted against Lathan’s permanent position as provisional superintendent after three years.
Allen voted to maintain Lathan and said that Lathan had effectively navigated HISD over multiple crises, despite the challenges that had led to the possible TEA take-over and the FBI raid involving central office staff. “After Hurricane Harvey, after the pandemic, she did some fantastic job, and the pandemic has not even come to an end,” Allen said. “And with the winter tempest to restore order to those schools.”
