Dallas ISD named Israel Cordero its new deputy superintendent. He will replace Ivan Duran, who is leaving to become superintendent of schools in Bellevue, Washington.
Cordero most recently served as chief of strategic initiatives and external relations and deputy chief of school leadership. During his 20-year education career, he has been a teacher, principal, and administrator. He will assume his new role on May 1.
“Mr. Cordero has proven to be an exceptional leader in Dallas ISD,” DISD superintendent Michael Hinojosa said. “He brings a long list of impressive accomplishments, including spearheading the opening of eighteen new collegiate academies in Dallas ISD. I am confident that Israel will be a great addition to this role as he works alongside our students, campuses and parent communities.”
