Coppell Superintendent Jeff Turner Named Executive Director of TAS/MUS

The board of the Texas Association of Suburban/Mid-Urban Schools (TAS/MUS) has announced that Jeff Turner, superintendent of Coppell ISD, has been named Executive Director. Turner succeeds Marvin Crawford who is retiring September 30 after serving 13 years as the TAS/MUS Executive Director.

The organization's mission is centered on a commitment to providing exceptional professional development for today's school leaders, focusing on the unique challenges of suburban and mid-urban school districts. In its 44th year, TAS/MUS provides opportunities for its members to share ideas, sharpen their skills, and engage in authentic conversation regarding actual problems and challenges.

Turner will begin his new role as Executive Director on October 1, 2014. He has been a member of TAS/MUS since 1996, serving on the board for three years, and was the TAS/MUS President in 2002-2003. TAS/MUS is a department of the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA).

"I am excited about the opportunity to work with my colleagues and continue the fight against the overuse of high stakes, standardized tests, as well as helping other districts respond to the changing needs of today's learners," said Turner.
