The Bryan ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved Shannon McGehee as Director of Student Services at their board meeting on Monday, June 7, 2021.

“I am thrilled and excited to transition to the position of Director of Student Services. I look forward to continuing to work with students, families, and the community of Bryan ISD in this capacity,” McGehee said. “I also want to thank the staff of Davila Middle School. Sharing the single-minded focus that all scholars can grow both academically and as young adults has been the highlight of my career. I would not be the person or educator I am today without their support.”
In this new position, McGehee will focus on district wide attendance, dropout prevention, and reducing truancy. Housed in the School Leadership Department, she’ll work closely with campus leadership and dropout prevention specialists.
“Shannon McGehee’s experience and dedication to ensuring children are first makes her the perfect fit to transition to the Director of Student Leadership,” said Bryan ISD Superintendent Dr. Christie Whitbeck.
