Dallas ISD Chief of Staff automatically becomes Interim Superintendent in event of vacancy

 Chief of Staff Leonardo Caballero

Dallas ISD Superintendent Mike Miles has selected Leonardo Caballero as the new Chief of Staff. 

For the past two years Mr. Caballero served in the role of Special Assistant to Lamar University President James M. Simmons (Beaumont,Texas)

In making the announcement, Superintendent Miles stated:
“I looked for an individual with a wide variety of skills and experiences in the public and/or private arenas. Mr. Caballero has demonstrated a track record of success in the management of inter-organizational efforts and external projects in an efficient, collaborative and effective manner."
Should a vacancy ever occur, the Board previously created a succession policy requiring that the Chief of Staff automatically assume the position of Interim Superintendent.
