After 21 years at the helm, North East Independent School District Superintendent Richard Middleton announced his retirement Tuesday.
Middleton, 63, will become vice president for the nonprofit College Board's Southwestern Regional Office, based in Austin, where he plans to continue working to boost college readiness among a diverse student population.
Middleton's retirement will take effect in June, but he may take accumulated leave and vacate his position by late April.
