In the fall of 2013, PROACT Search successfully helped El Paso ISD hire Juan Cabrera to be their new Superintendent. Shortly after Cabrera began his term, EPISD reached out to PROACT Search once more to see if we could provide assistance in recruiting a top-tier cabinet. As a result, PROACT Search agreed to help and conduct searches to find qualified candidates for multiple positions, including three Area Superintendents, a Deputy Superintendent of Academics, and a Deputy Superintendent of Support Services.
PROACT Search received 66 applications for the three Area Superintendent positions, 43 applications for the Deputy Superintendent of Academics and School Leadership position, and 17 applications for the Deputy Superintendent of Support Services position. After rigorous screening by PROACT Search and much deliberation by Superintendent Cabrera and his staff, El Paso ISD hired Ivonne Durant as Deputy Superintendent of Academics, Tom Miller as Deputy Superintendent of Support Services, and Danna Diaz, Royce Avery, and Taryn Bailey as Area Superintendents.
