    Dr. Juan I. Martinez

    Superintendent of Schools

    Clint ISD


    Dr. Juan I. Martinez has been a Texas educator for 25 years, serving as a Teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, Director of Human Resources, Chief Human Resource Officer and Superintendent. He is in his sixth year as the Superintendent of the Clint Independent School District.

    Dr. Martinez believes that his role must not be relegated to the traditional role of the Superintendent but rather, a source of social capital in education for all students. Along with Principals, Counselors and Teachers, Dr. Martinez has created a culture of advocacy for students in Clint ISD. Dr. Martinez can be found visiting campuses, speaking and listening to students and parents to encourage the relationships and transparency between our school system and the community we serve.

    Clint ISD encompasses three major, separate and distinct communities – the Town of Clint, a stable farming and ranching area; the town of Horizon City, a growing suburban area; and the community of Montana Vista, an unincorporated area, with over 11,000 students district-wide.

    Dr. Martinez received his Bachelor of Business Administration In Computer Information System and Master of Education degrees from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1993 and 1996. Dr. Martinez obtained his superintendent certification from the Angelo State University in 2006. He received his Doctorate in Educational Administration from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2017.

    Dr. Martinez and his wife, Brenda are proud parents of two children.
