Michael Kuhrt

Superintendent
Witchita ISD

Michael Kuhrt became the superintendent for the Wichita Falls ISD on August 20, 2015 in a unanimous 6-0 vote by the Wichita Falls ISD board.

Mr. Kuhrt was already a familiar face around the district at that point. He had arrived in Wichita Falls one year earlier, in August 2014, to serve as associate superintendent. But within a year, he was named interim superintendent after the announced departure of then-Superintendent Dr. John Frossard.

Board President Trey Sralla joked that Mr. Kuhrt’s freshman year in the district turned out to be a “baptism by fire,” since board members were able to observe his leadership style while he served under Dr. Frossard, then as he took the reins as interim superintendent.

When he came to Wichita Falls, Mr. Kuhrt had already logged nine years experience as superintendent in two Texas school districts: Dayton ISD and Giddings ISD.
