Dallas ISD Director of IT Infrastructure Jason Miller is joining Leander ISD as its new Chief Technology Officer.

The Board of Trustees announced Miller’s hiring during its May 21 meeting. In his new role, he will lead the Technology Services departments as well as the district’s vision for technology and innovation. 

“I’m delighted to welcome Jason Miller to Leander ISD,” Superintendent Bruce Gearing, Ed.D., said. “We’ve seen firsthand the importance of connectivity and access to technology like no other time. Jason’s experience in the second-largest school district in the state will help tremendously as the needs of our digital explorers grow.”

Prior to his time in education, Miller spent several years in the telecommunications industry. In his five years at Dallas ISD, he helped craft the district’s master plan for Technology Services as well as oversaw the planning and implementation of IT projects. Miller says he thrives at bridging IT solutions with challenges in education. 

“I was so excited to get the news and feel lucky to be part of an incredible district,” Miller said.  “The constant growth of adding more than 1,000 students every year, and yet that family-like atmosphere, definitely make Leander ISD a place to be. I’m thrilled to contribute a mindset of being customer-focused and thinking outside the box.”

Miller earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Management from The University of Phoenix and a master’s degree in Business Administration from Texas A&M University-Commerce.

Area Superintendent Laurelyn Artebury, Ed.D., stepped into the vacant role at the beginning of the year. Miller will start his new position July 6.
