Mike Jasso has been named Richardson ISD Chief of Staff, filling the district’s No. 2 position that has been vacant since December 2021.
“Mike brings a wealth of ability and experience to our leadership team,” RISD Superintendent Tabitha Branum said. “He is a servant leader with a proven track record, and we are excited to welcome him back to RISD.”
Jasso returns to RISD from Mesquite ISD, where he served in two assistant superintendent roles, leading personnel services and administrative services. From 2017-2021, Jasso led RISD’s Berkner learning community as executive director. In his 30th year in public education, Jasso has served as a classroom teacher and coach, assistant principal, and middle and high school principal.
“I’m honored and thrilled to be returning to Richardson ISD,” Jasso said. “I know from experience that RISD is a wonderful school district. The future is bright, and I’m grateful to be part of supporting our students, teachers, and families as we continue to move forward.”
Jasso will work with Superintendent Branum to provide leadership in support of RISD’s mission, facilitate programming in key areas and major district initiatives, and work with a variety of community and stakeholder groups to advance RISD’s continuous improvement. He will begin his transition to his new role in the coming weeks.
