HUTTO — Hutto Independent School District is looking for a new leader just seven months after filling the position.

During the Thursday, April 26 meeting of the school board, trustees accepted the resignation of Superintendent Raúl Peña. 

President Billie Logiudice announced in a letter to students and parents that Cara Malone, assistant superintendent of human resources, will take over as acting superintendent in the meantime.

"We have a great leadership team in place that will continue the positive momentum as we make decisions in the best interest of the district and for students, while staying focused on our strategic plan and goals," President Billie Logiudice said. "The Board of trustees, Dr. Malone and the Hutto ISD Executive Leadership Team remain united and steadfast in our commitment to serving Hippo Nation."

Peña was named the lone finalist in August after a 13-week superintendent search.

Hutto ISD said Malone has headed methods of creating career pathways for future teachers and earned statewide attention for her Teacher Apprenticeship Program.
