Kincaid announces retirement from Burnet High School




After four years of serving as principal of Burnet High School and with 32 years of service in public education, Mark Kincaid announced to his staff Wednesday, Feb. 3, his plans to retire at the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

“He has a new grandbaby and he wants to be able to spend time with his family and enjoy the new addition,” said Keith McBurnett, superintendent of the Burnet Consolidated Independent School District (BCISD).

During his career, Kincaid has served in a number of different positions including principal of Leander High School, executive director of college and career preparatory programs for Austin Community College and executive director of college and career readiness in the Pflugerville ISD.

“My faith plays a big part in my life and I think God is telling me it is time to step aside and take on other challenges,” Kincaid said. “I have a new grandbaby and my wife’s parents are getting older and need more attention.”

“He will be greatly missed, but we are fortunate as a community that he will continue to call Burnet home,” McBurnett said.

“He has done a tremendous job being principal and addressing issues,” McBurnett added.

With Kincaid's announcement, the administration will begin the process immediately of developing a profile, interviewing candidates and selecting the next principal of Burnet High School.
