Superintendent's Message



Dear Eagle Community,


I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself.  I am Dr. Sam Bueno, your Interim Superintendent of Schools. Although I carry the title of "Interim" I want you to know that I am approaching this time with Benavides ISD as if I will be here for 10+ years. I'm excited about the hard work of closing out the second semester and planning for the coming year.  


I am a US Navy Veteran with 28 years of experience in Education, both in public and higher-ed.; 12 of those years were spent as a campus principal and 7 as a superintendent of schools. In the short time that I have been here I have been very impressed by the passion and pride displayed by the students, staff and community!  I live in Duval County and have always admired the City of Benavides and its rich history.  


In closing, I look forward to working with our students, staff, community and school board to lay out a bright future!


Yours in Education,

Dr. Sam Bueno
