After nearly 10 years, Early ISD Superintendent Brett Koch announced his resignation at Early's school board meeting Monday evening. The school board voted 5-2 to accept Koch's resignation.
Koch has agreed to resign two years prior to June 30, 2016, which was the end date on his original contract, in exchange for a lump sum payment of $42,251.
When asked what prompted his decision, Koch said it was simply a mutual agreement.
Koch said his official resignation date is in June of 2014, but his last official day of working will be Jan. 31, 2014.
Koch also praised Early ISD and said, "It's an outstanding school district. I'm proud of it. I'm proud that my son goes to school there. It's been really great."
