Seguin ISD Trustees To Name Interim Superintendent
Dr. Veronica Vijil, Seguin ISD deputy superintendent, will serve as Seguin ISD interim superintendent effective Oct. 2.

The board of trustees met in a Sept. 13 special meeting to discuss personnel items and plan to consider adoption of a formal agreement to appoint Dr. Vijil during the Sept. 26 regular school board meeting.

Trustees are prioritizing stability as Dr. Gutierrez transitions to his new role in Leander ISD effective Sept. 29.
"Seguin ISD continues to move forward as a destination district and the goal is to maintain that momentum as we begin the process of filling the superintendent seat with an effective, compassionate leader," said Seguin ISD Board President Alejandro Guerra.

Dr. Vijil has served as deputy superintendent since joining Seguin ISD in July 2023. She brings a wealth of experience to the district, having previously served as superintendent of Fabens ISD near El Paso. She earned her doctorate at Sam Houston State University, masters degree at Indiana Wesleyan University and a bachelor of science degree at The University of Texas-El Paso. As a 34 year educator, she has superintendent, principal, ESL and teaching certifications for grades 6-12.

Her previous administrative roles include superintendent, associate superintendent, executive director of data management and compliance, and middle school principal.

"I have had the privilege of working closely with Dr. Vijil for the past couple of months and am confident that she will provide excellent leadership during this transition period. She exhibits a positive, can-do attitude along with years of experience in Texas public schools. During her short time with our district she has taken initiative toward making herself an integral part of the Seguin ISD community. I know that Seguin ISD will be in good hands," said Superintendent Dr. Matthew Gutierrez.

The Sept. 26 regular school board meeting will take place at the Seguin ISD administrative office at 6:30 p.m.
