Dr. Randy Reid

President • Keller ISD

Dr. Reid came to Keller after spending five years as the superintendent of Tyler ISD. While in Tyler, he lead the largest school system in East Texas – 18,500 students – and implemented a new curriculum which saw improved academic performance and closed achievement gaps, especially among mathematics and science. He also oversaw the passage of a $125 million bond in 2008 that built five new elementary schools and renovated two others.
