Shawn Pratt has been named the lone finalist for superintendent of McKinney ISD.
The board appointed Pratt as the lone finalist with a 6-1 vote during its Feb. 28 board meeting. Board Member Chad Green opposed the appointment. The district must wait a 21-day state-mandated period before Pratt can become superintendent.
Pratt has served as MISD’s assistant superintendent of student activities, health and safety, since 2020. Pratt also has worked in various positions in the district for almost 30 years, including his 11-year tenure as athletic director.
“I am deeply honored and incredibly grateful to serve the McKinney ISD community as superintendent,” Pratt said in a district statement. “McKinney has been my home since 1992 when I began my student teaching at McKinney High School and Faubion Middle School. My wife and I have raised our three children here, and all three have benefited from an outstanding educational experience. MISD has exceptional students, teachers, administrators and board members, and I consider it a true privilege to lead the MISD family.”
