Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Mike Moses resigned Wednesday, effective August 31st.
The 52-year-old administrator served three years as Dallas Superintendent. He once served as Deputy Chancellor for Texas Tech and was considered for the chancellor position when John Montford stepped down in 2001.
Dr. Moses, who was Texas Superintendent of the Year in 2003, said resigning was not a decision he reached easily, but said the time was right. "I think it is sadness that you to come to this point, but I think it is a point for me and my family to make this change," said Dr. Moses.
Dr. Moses left Lubbock to become superintendent for the nation's 12th largest school system in January of 2001. His resume includes jobs as State Education Commissioner and Superintendent of the Lubbock, Tatum, and Lamarque School Districts.
Dr. Moses said he's not sure what he'll do next, but is considering a return to higher education.
