Pedro Martinez, a former superintendent in Washoe County, Nev., has been named the new schools superintendent in the 55,000-student San Antonio district in Texas.

In January, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval appointed Mr. Martinez as the state's superintendent-in-residence to help set up a proposed "achievement school district," which will consist of the state's lowest-performing schools.

Mr. Martinez worked in Chicago and Clark County, Nev., before becoming the superintendent in Washoe County in 2012.
