After a 30-year career in public education, seven as CISD Superintendent, Dr. Jolly has chosen to begin his retirement.

“Seven years, 30 years total is a lot of stress.  It’s a lot of time, and we feel that this is best for our family,” said Dr. Jolly in a video that he released to the staff on January 25, 2019, announcing his upcoming retirement.  “I’m excited about being a dad, and not a superintendent dad.”
