Carroll ISD board member David Almand announced July 19 that he would be stepping down.

The board of trustees will discuss next steps during an Aug. 2 special board meeting, according to a statement from board President Michelle Moore. According to board policy, the remaining members of the board can appoint a new trustee to fill a vacancy or call a special election to fill the rest of the former trustee’s term.

Almand has served on the Carroll board for four years, and he is now moving away from the district to enjoy his retirement, according to Moore. Almand has served as a substitute teacher and committee member in CISD as well as other volunteer roles, according to the district website.

Almand said he will vacate his position as the Place 7 trustee effective July 30.
