Reddock announces departure from district

By SONYA ROBERTS-WOODS/Publisher
Dr. Andy Reddock is saying goodbye as Paul Pewitt CISD’s superintendent.
Reddock notified school board members and his administrative team Oct. 2 that he is the lone finalist for a superintendent’s position at Flatonia ISD. State law requires the receiving district to wait 21 days before officially hiring a prospective candidate. The 2A district is some 90 miles east of San Antonio.
Reddock accepted the superintendent’s position at Paul Pewitt CISD in January 2014 succeeding David Fitts, who now serves as Executive Director for the Region VIII Education Service Center. While Reddock admits the move is bitter sweet, it will allow him to be closer to his parents who own a ranch in South Texas.
“It will put us two-thirds closer to them,” Reddock said, “so that will definitely be a positive thing for our family.”
Reddock’s wife, Jaime, a Pewitt educator, and his daughter, a senior at Paul Pewitt High School, have plans to remain in the area until graduation next spring. The couple also has a younger son.
Prior to coming to Pewitt, Reddock served as assistant superintendent of Coahoma ISD. He has also served as principal and assistant principal for Marble Falls ISD and as an elementary principal for Seguin ISD. Prior to pursuing a career in administration, Reddock taught fifth grade at Palestine ISD.
“Without a doubt this has been a fantastic experience for me,” Reddock said. “I have learned a lot from my time at Paul Pewitt and I am proud of the accomplishments we have made. Working with the students, teachers and administrators has been wonderful. This community and the people of Pewitt are deep rooted and it has been an honor to serve as the district’s superintendent.”
A special call board meeting was held Oct. 5 to determine next steps for the board including determining the selection process as well as the possible appointment of an interim superintendent and a search consultant.
