Mikael "Mike" Floyd resigned from the Pearland ISD board of trustees, according to a social media post made by Floyd and a press release sent out by the district Aug. 14. Floyd had served on the board for one three-year term. His term would have ended in May 2020, had the election not been pushed to November due to COVID-19.

"Though it pains me to resign before my extended term is over—but after my expected term expired—recent board decisions that I cannot support have forced me to conclude that it is in the best interest of the district and myself if I step aside," Floyd said in his resignation letter.

In the letter, Floyd states the district needs to continue to work on equality toward transgender students, mental health and ending racism in the district. He also states it was an honor to work with his other six trustees.

"I have received Mike Floyd's resignation from the board of trustees. I want to wish Mike and his family the very best in the future," board of trustees President Charles Gooden Jr. said in the press release from the district.
