Aledo ISD names new principal 

Street will lead new Lynn McKinney Elementary School


Aledo ISD has named Heather Street as principal at the new Lynn McKinney Elementary School, AISD’s seventh, that will open in the fall of 2024. McKinney Elementary is being built as a part of the Aledo Bond program that passed in May of 2023; it is the largest single project in the 2023 bond program.

 Street has been the principal at Walsh Elementary School  in Aledo ISD since 2021. Prior to that, she was an assistant principal and International Baccalaureate curriculum coordinator at Bright Academy in the Frisco ISD from 2018 to 2021. Street was an assistant principal at Vandagriff Elementary School in Aledo ISD from 2015 to 2018 and also a districtwide behavioral intervention specialist for AISD from 2014 to 2015. She worked for the Fort Worth ISD from 2006 to 2014 as a district lead behavioral specialist (2009-2014) and as a fifth grade math and science teacher at Luella Merrett and Western Hills elementary schools (2006-2009).

 “We are excited to have Mrs. Street open Lynn McKinney Elementary and also that she will continue to be a valued part of our Bearcat Leadership team,” Superintendent Dr. Susan Bohn said. “While I know it will be hard for her to step away from Walsh at the end of this school year, we are grateful that she came to us to express interest in this opportunity to grow her leadership through the opening of this new campus.”  

 Street has a Bachelor of Science from Texas Christian University and a master’s in Education from Tarleton State University. Previously, Street was a Teacher of the Year at Western Hills Elementary (2007-2008) and also at Luella Merrett Elementary (2008-2009), and she was nominated for Aledo ISD’s IDEA award in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and for the Aledo ISD Don Daniel Administrator of the Year award in 2016 and 2017.

 “The chance to open a new school - especially one named after Mrs. McKinney - is an opportunity I couldn’t pass up,” Street said. “I am thrilled to be given this opportunity and can’t wait to build an incredible community of McKinney Elementary Bearcats next school year! 

 “I am so proud of what we have built together and accomplished at Walsh, and I can’t wait to see the continued success of the students and staff at Walsh,” Street said.
