The Dripping Springs ISD board of trustees is slated to consider the possible resignation of district superintendent Todd Washburn at the board's Oct. 26 meeting. Washburn has served as superintendent since November 2019, when he joined the district from Eanes ISD.

An agenda item in the board's closed session portion of the meeting lists "consultation with legal counsel regarding Superintendent Resignation Agreement, appointment of interim superintendent and related matters." In the subsequent open session, a possible action item for "approval of Superintendent's Resignation Agreement, appointment of interim superintendent and related matters" is listed.


DSISD representatives declined to comment on the agenda item, except to say that "parents should know the district will put the best interests of students, families and staff at the forefront while working through this process."

The board meeting is set to take place virtually Oct. 26 at 6 p.m.

This is an ongoing story, and updates will be posted as more information becomes available.
