"I am deeply proud of all we have accomplished together as a team in SISD for the benefit of the more than 33,000 students we serve every day," Watson said in a statement. "I have worked shoulder to shoulder over the past seven years with a phenomenal board, excellent principals, central office administrators, and school staff to improve student outcomes."

Prior to becoming SISD's superintendent seven years ago, Watson served as the chief human resources officer for Houston ISD.
