CITY VIEW, TX (KAUZ) - Steve Harris is out as the Superintendent of City View ISD. On Monday night, Harris resigned from the position, leaving the district to regroup, however, a reason for his resignation has not been released.
Dr. Brad Lewis has been the Assistant Superintendent for the last two and a half years and now has taken over as Interim Superintendent.
Dr. Lewis said the decision for Harris to resign was mutual among both parties, and in everyone's best interest. He said the board has made no decisions on what they will do next.
"We want to make sure that our staff understands that this is a transition," Dr. Lewis said. "And we realize it's not the easiest of transitions to go through. We just want to make sure we're there for their support."
He said despite the uncertainties, he will take the job day-by-day and work to make the transition as seamless as possible.
"There's not going to be any major changes," Dr. Lewis said. "The leadership team, along with other staff members have the plan for the year. It's already in place. There's no reason to make a hard left or make a hard right."
Dr. Lewis said that he believes the board will have a superintendent job search at some point. But right now their focus is on the students because they're in the kid business.
He added that he wants to make the teacher's and staff's job as easy as possible during this time. Stay with Newschannel 6 as we continue to follow this developing story.
