NORTH TEXAS (CBDFW.COM) – The superintendent of the Cedar Hill Independent School District is resigning.
Horace Williams announced Tuesday that he is stepping down. Williams had been with the Cedar Hill ISD for six years.

The statement put out by the district said the agreement reached with Williams allows him to “pursue other interests and permits the Board to pursue hiring another Superintendent.”
Williams’ resignation letter was also posted online. In it he said, “In a community as diverse as Cedar Hill, I never expected that any decision would be met with absolute approval. Since a healthy debate and transparent process are essential to good decision‐making, I am grateful to those who have supported my positions and also to those who have disagreed in a civil manner.”

Williams has had criticism and faced opposition from some parents and city leaders during his tenure. In May, CHISD teacher Marlena Mints was charged with one count of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child and two counts of Improper Relationship With Students. Mints was a health teacher and coach at Bessie Coleman Middle School. Then a month later another teacher, Shannon Parks, was arrested for allegedly having had sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old student.

The school board appointed Kim Lewis as acting superintendent. Kim served in the CHISD for 36 years and had just retired the position of retired Chief Operations Officer in January.
