Superintendent Jeff Irvin

It is an honor and privilege to be named Superintendent by the Quinlan ISD Board of Trustees.  I am very grateful for the opportunity to continue my career with such a great district.  Each day I will strive to achieve the vision and mission of the district for every student.  I am committed to maintaining the reputation of our school district as an exceptional place for students to receive an extraordinary education that will prepare them for college or the workforce.   I believe in setting high education standards that challenge students on a daily basis.  We will be student-centered and base decisions on what is best for all QISD children.   Servant leadership best describes my leadership style and I will strive to serve the community as best I can.  While serving as Superintendent, I will work diligently with the school board, community, QISD campuses and central administration to accomplish set goals for the district.  The goals include:

  • To continue to build a true learning culture with academic rigor, strong discipline, competitiveness, and respect for others that yields positive student achievement and encourages progressive, entrepreneurial, innovative and creative thinking
  • To develop and prepare student leaders academically, vocationally, emotionally, and socially to take advantage of the opportunities and challenges of a 21st Century World through authentic, engaging, interactive and progressive instruction
  • To maintain a continual improvement model by utilizing an on-going systems analysis approach
  • To maintain long-term financial solvency and to pursue financial equity for all Texas children
  • To develop early literacy partnerships with parents and community
  • To promote a college & career readiness culture
  • To foster increased parent and community involvement
  • To continue to emerge as a lighthouse district worthy of emulation for all stakeholders
