BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - During a Tuesday board meeting, Bryan ISD named its interim superintendent.

The school district’s Deputy Superintendent Ginger Carrabine was named to the position, taking over when Superintendent Dr. Christie Whitbeck leaves for Fort Bend ISD. Carrabine has worked for the district for four years.

“Dr. Whitbeck launched this when school started that student achievement was our number one priority so we don’t want to lose sight of that. We know not just in Bryan ISD, but across the state and nation we’ve got a lot of unfinished learning so we’re going to remain steadfast with that as well,” said Carrabine. “As far as interim I do look forward to meeting with the school board to learn their expectations of me, but for now just to maintain consistency, continue with the momentum, serve our students and meet the needs of our community.”

Whitbeck was named the sole finalist for the top job at Fort Bend ISD on Aug. 26. Under Texas law, the district has to wait 21 days before the hire can be official. She has been the superintendent in Bryan since 2017.

Prior to joining BISD, Whitbeck was the deputy superintendent for Fort Bend ISD from 2013-2017.

“It’s a very strong relationship between the leadership of this district. So when one person steps away everyone else steps up and that’s how I see what’s going to happen now in Bryan ISD you will not miss a beat. I would say to the community be rest assured, you are in great hands and it will continue with the amazing gains we’ve been making,” said Whitbeck.
