The Victoria ISD Administration and Board of Trustees have received the resignation of Michael S. Kuhrt as Deputy Superintendent effective July 11. The Board is set to receive the resignation of Kuhrt at the Special Called Board Meeting on Tuesday, July 12 at noon. The Board had previously approved the hiring of Kuhrt at the Special Called Board Meeting on June 30. 

Kuhrt’s resignation from the district does not include additional severance pay.

Victoria ISD will conduct a reassessment of its administrative structure which will occur after the start of the 2022-23 school year before taking any next steps regarding a search for a Deputy Superintendent.

Kuhrt's resignations letter:

I’d like to begin by thanking you and the Board of Trustees for giving me the opportunity to work
in Victoria ISD. I was looking forward to working for you and helping you accomplish the mission
of VISD. I wish you and the district nothing but the best in the years to come. However, based
on the overwhelming negative and defamatory social media unrest, however false that it may
be, I feel that it is in the best interest of the VISD that I resign my position effective July 11,

Michael S Kuhrt
Deputy Superintendent
Victoria ISD
