Dr. Cummings had been the Caldwell ISD Superintendent for the past four years and before that she had been the principal at the elementary school and curriculum coordinator.
She had been the subject of several executive sessions since November. After a 23 minute executive session recently, the Board agreed to buyout the remaining two years on Cummings contract, amounting to $99,760. She will step down on August 31st.
Harris said Dr. Cummings had many successes in her tenure with the district but it was time to ‘make a transition.’
