McClendon was placed on paid administrative leave on March 2, 2015 and Jeff Chambers, CISD’s chief financial officer, was named Acting Superintendent at that time.

At that time, the board approved hiring an independent investigator to review allegations brought forth under board policy DIA Local.

His first administrative position was in 1998 with Princeton ISD. In 2000 he moved into an administrative position with Wylie ISD.

In 2004, McClendon was named assistant superintendent for Community ISD where he served until he accepted his Wylie ISD Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Student Services with Wylie ISD in 2006. He was named Community ISD Superintendent in 2011.
