“The overall objective of the entry plan is listen, learn and lead,” Sayavedra said. “The importance of understanding the general culture of El Paso ISD and the El Paso Community cannot be overemphasized.”

The plan is organized in three phases:

  1. Phase 1 (January): Entry Plan development, engagement with the Board of Trustees and document review;
  2. Phase 2 (February & March): Listen, Learn & Lead and establish clear communication structures; and
  3. Phase 3 (March): Feedback analysis and the development of a plan of action.

Throughout her transitional period, Sayavedra plans to continue to coordinate campus visits and engage with students, teachers, employees and other community stakeholders in El Paso.

“Understanding the importance of how to best engage with the existing culture of the District is essential for a new leader to successfully transition into the role of superintendent,” she said. “The evolution of the superintendent as a leader allows for stakeholders to be participants in the process of moving the organization forward toward becoming a District of Choice.”
