DeKALB, Texas -- DeKalb ISD's superintendent Dr. Chris Galloway announced his resignation Tuesday morning in a joint statement with the district's board of trustees.

The board and Galloway have reached an agreement that allows for the superintendent to pursue other interests and for a new superintendent search to begin.
