As superintendent, Dr. Saavedra enacted a new pay-for-performance program for HISD teachers and spearheaded a 'Reach out to Dropouts' campaign. The school board named San Diego school district Superintendent Terry Grier as a finalist to replace Dr. Saavedra.

HISD's Chief Financial Officer Melinda Garrett will serve as interim superintendent.
