He's been in the job since Karen Garza resigned. Now Berhl Robertson is officially superintendent of the Lubbock ISD. Robertson joined the district in 2009 as chief administrative officer after serving as superintendent of the Roosevelt ISD.
Robertson said his goal is fostering excellence.
"My number one role is to narrow focus at the campus level," Robertson said. "It's about instruction and to build a culture on our campuses where they feel good about themselves. They feel good about their kids and they have no fear of trying things new and they're able to move their campus forward. And our role, at least my role in central office is to support that."
The board also names Dr. Jerry Adams as the new Principal of Coronado High School and the trustees adopt a $199.6 million budget. A $13 increase from last year.
The tax rate remains unchanged, $1 and 23.5 cents per hundred dollars valuation, the same it's been for six years.
