About Our Superintendent

Dr. Bostic


Dr. Robert Bostic has a vision for the future of education. It involves success through technological preparedness, or as he likes to say “STEM to Earn.”

Dr. Bostic didn’t wait very long before putting the STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology, Math) vision into action.

 

Upon arrival at Stafford MSD in 2014, he spearheaded the District’s involvement in a Pre-K through 12th Grade Robotics Program that’s become highly popular throughout the District. SMSD has received more than $300,000 in Grants for its Robotics Program.

 

While many Districts are focused on preparing students for the 21st Century, Dr. Bostic is several steps ahead of them. We’re preparing students to meet the challenges of the second part of the 21st Century.

 

With that type of commitment toward the future, it’s no surprise that Dr. Bostic serves as the K-12 Co-Chair Advisory Representative for the Microsoft Corporation in Redmond, Wash.

 

He was recently appointed one of just 20 Texas Superintendents to the Texas Commissioner of Education to the Texas Education Agency Rural and Small Schools Task Force.

 

Throughout his 25 years as a teacher, supervisor, assistant principal, principal and assistant superintendent, Dr. Bostic has always recognized the importance of implementing the latest technology in the classroom.

 

It fits in perfectly with his vision for Stafford MSD – to have ALL students graduate college or career ready, without remediation. In today’s world, technology is an important component in achieving that goal.

 

Dr Bostic also generated a pivotal partnership with Smart Financial Credit Union to bring only the second working banking institution to operate inside of a High School campus in the Greater Houston area that pays student interns to be tellers and promote district wide financial literacy.

 

Dr. Bostic was highly instrumental in working with the Stafford MSD Board Members and state representatives to bring HB 601 to be pre filed in the 85th Legislature. Under his leadership SMSD has achieved 16 state academic distinctions. Stafford Elementary School was ranked in the Top 1 percent of Elementary Schools in the State in 2015-16.

Stafford MSD has increased its enrollment by 3 percent through the “Stafford MSD Proud” Campaign and avoided paying Recapture. That means under Dr. Bostic’s direction, Stafford MSD was able to re-invest in itself, instead of sending funds back to Austin.

 

Before arriving at SMSD, Dr. Bostic served as the Assistant Superintendent for Academic Programs at Denton ISD in Denton, Texas. At DISD, Dr. Bostic made using “technology as a tool” a top priority to help teachers and administrators streamline their work with teaching and learning in the district and throughout the state. 

 

He founded and instituted the largely successful Technology Integration Academy that is held each summer in Denton, Texas to this day.  He founded and spearheaded the i-Bot competitive robotics league for elementary and middle school students, authored the districts application for the National Tech Savvy School Districts for 2009 and 2010 where under his direction Denton ISD placed in the Top 10 in the nation for two consecutive years. He was recipient of the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Administrator of the Year in 2008 and was also honored as top finalist for Technology Administrator of the Year in 2011.

 

As a campus administrator, Dr. Bostic was successful in leading diverse campuses in Oklahoma City, Richardson and Carrollton Farmers Branch with student populations that had majority-minority populations.  Each of the campuses received ratings at the Recognized level or Exemplary level under his leadership.  Dr. Bostic was a Texas Business Education Coalition Honor Roll Campus. That annual award is considered to be the most prestigious award for sustained, academic excellence in Texas.  According to TBEC, of the more than 8,000 Texas public schools, less than 4 percent make the Honor Roll.

 

Dr. Bostic earned his Bachelor’s degree from Langston University and his Master’s of Education degree from the University of Central Oklahoma.  He earned his Superintendent’s Certificate and Doctorate in Education degree at the University of North Texas.  Dr. Bostic enjoys professional sports tournaments, fishing, boating, and family time.  He is happily married to his wife of 22 years, Ellen, and together they have two children, Paige, 21 years old, and Ethan, 15 years old.  He is also the proud owner of a dapple dachshund, Roxy.
