BCISD School Board names Marshall Scott III, lone finalist for Superintendent
At a special meeting April 3rd, the Bay City ISD Board of Trustees named a sole finalist for superintendent: Marshall Scott III, Ed.D, Executive Director of Elementary Schools in Baltimore County Public Schools in Baltimore, Maryland. By law, the Board must now wait 21 days before voting to hire Dr. Scott.
The Board hired the Walsh Gallegos law firm to coordinate the superintendent search. Through several meetings and an online public survey, the Board gathered characteristics desired in a superintendent and developed a profile.
The board selected six applicants to interview, and then chose three out of those for second interviews.
Dr. Scott has approximately 20 years experience in education, and since 2016 has been the Executive Director of Elementary Schools for Baltimore County Public Schools in Maryland. In that position, he collaborated with the Board of Education as the supervisor for 16 academically challenged elementary schools. Prior to that, he served as Assistant Superintendent of Middle Schools for that district from 2013-2016. In Texas, he most recently worked as the Field Supervisor at Rice University for the Education Entrepreneurship Program from 2011-2013.
Dr. Scott began his education career in the Houston Independent School District, where he worked from 1997 until late 2013. He last served there as the School Improvement Officer, directly reporting to the Chief of Elementary Schools. He is a former principal of Louisa May Alcott Elementary, was an ESL assistant principal at Montgomery Elementary School and Young Learner Charter School, and worked as a lead science and math teacher at Dodson Elementary School as well as a third and fifth grade teacher at the TSU/HISD Laboratory School --- all in HISD.
Dr. Scott earned a B.B.A. in Business Administration from Northwood University in 1997, and his M.Ed. and Ed.D. from Texas Southern University in 2003 and 2011, respectively.
Dr. Scott is married, he and his wife have six children, and the youngest is graduating high school this semester.
