Gary Mooring hired as Tyler ISD superintendent

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Gary Mooring, current Tyler ISD interim superintendent, has been hired as the permanent Tyler ISD superintendent.

Mooring was selected as the lone finalist for the District's superintendent position in December 2012.

When Mooring settled into the interim superintendent position back in August, he said he had no intention of making it permanent, but that changed. 

In 2006, Mooring joined Tyler ISD as deputy superintendent and later served as interim superintendent.

"After being out of the district for a few years working at Tyler Junior College, I got back into the position and really was excited about the challenges," Mooring said back in December. 

Those challenges include helping the district meet Federal Adequate Yearly Progress standards, something the district has struggled with in the past. 

"There's not one person in this district or probably in any district that's not looking to improve and we're also looking at best practices throughout the state. What has helped other districts be successful? There has been progress in what we've done," Mooring said. 

Mooring's contract is for two and one-half years.
