McKinney ISD is pleased to welcome Traci Hall as its new District Assessment Coordinator. The Board of Trustees approved the position at their regular board meeting on Tuesday, June 18. Hall offers two decades of education experience as a teacher, campus administrator and district-level coordinator. 

“Traci brings a wealth of knowledge on assessment and is adept at creating and designing critical systems and protocols on the district level that will serve as the template for our department,” said Gordon Butler, McKinney ISD Director of Program Evaluation.

Hall comes to McKinney ISD from Grapevine-Colleyville ISD where she has served as District Assessment Coordinator for the last four years. She began her career some 20 years ago as a math teacher for Sharyland ISD and has worked as a classroom teacher in both the Kopperl and Cedar Hill school districts. 

While working for Cedar Hill ISD, Hall moved from the classroom into an administrative role, serving as an assistant principal at the elementary, intermediate and high school levels from 2001-05, and she served as assistant principal/interim principal for two years at Bessie Coleman Middle School. 

Hall went on to become the Cedar Hill ISD District Coordinator of PEIMS and served in that capacity for 12 years before accepting the District Assessment Coordinator position with Grapevine-Colleyville ISD. 

Hall holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Mathematics and a master’s degree in Educational Administration from Tarleton State University. 

“Working with Gordon Butler to grow an assessment department that will not only sustain McKinney’s growth but will also support data-based instructional decisions is going to be a fantastic adventure,” said Hall.
