New CISD Superintendent on the job next month

Commerce – Mike Roberts, the new Superintendent of Commerce Schools, said he is looking forward to being back in the area and with CISD.

ROBERTS: I'm really excited about the opportunity to come back and lead the Commerce Independent School District. It is a school district with a proud history.

Roberts said he hopes to be on the job in about six weeks.

ROBERTS: I am going to try to be there the second week in July. That is what I am striving for. I am working with my current (school) board to see if we can't make that happen.
