AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District unanimously voted Monday to name Ashley Chohlis its lone superintendent finalist, according to reporting from News 4 San Antonio.
A district spokesperson told News 4 SA Chohlis has 28 years of education experience and currently works as Poth ISD’s superintendent.
Following Monday’s vote, Chohlis began a 21-day waiting period and is anticipated to sign the contract with Uvalde CISD on and following Nov. 27. From there, she’ll begin serving as superintendent, News 4 SA reported.
Interim Superintendent Gary Patterson began serving in his temporary capacity in October 2022, after then-Superintendent Dr. Hal Harrell announced his retirement. Harrell’s retirement came five months after the Uvalde mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, where 19 children and two teachers were killed.
