Dear Donna ISD Community,

It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter. I would like to inform you that I have been named the lone finalist for the Superintendent position at Round Rock ISD. I’m thrilled about this new opportunity where I will oversee a district with an enrollment of close to 50,000 students. This opportunity will also bring me closer to my family. While I’m super excited to move forward, I’m also sad because Donna ISD has been my home for the past three years. As I reflect on my time here, I specifically remember when I arrived in 2018 and how I was welcomed with open arms. Soon after, we began our journey together making many significant improvements. Please know that my last three years as your leader have been incredible and that Donna ISD will always have a special place in my heart.

Sincerely,

Dr. Hafedh Azaiez
Donna ISD Superintendent
