TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Sierra Vista Unified School District Governing Board has approved a new Superintendent for the district. 

In a 3 to 2 vote by the Governing Board on April 15, Kriss Hagerl was approved for the SVUSD Superintendent position.

"I am so grateful for the confidence the public and the board have placed in me," said Hagerl in a recent SVUSD release. 

The Governing Board began looking for a new Superintendent after Brett Agenbroad, who held the position previously, retired and took a job in Alaska.  Governing Board members hired the Arizona School Boards Association to conduct a search - five candidates were found and interviewed. 

Kriss Hagerl, Interim SVUSD Superintendent; Scot Roppe, Principal of Village Meadows Elementary School; Karl Uterhardt, Superintendent of Tombstone School District; Randall Gilson, Superintendent from Nebraska and Roshonne Bria from Washington state.  Four of the five candidates were interviewed, Bria declined shortly before the interviews took place, the remaining candidates took questions from the public at a meet and greet on April 12.

Public comments were also taken into consideration during the search for a superintendent. 

The official announcement was made following the April 15 governing board meeting.

SVUSD consists of eight schools, currently serving 5,600 students that was given a B rating by the Arizona Department of Education.
