Coppell ISD Superintendent Jeff Turner will retire from his position at the end of August, the district announced.
Turner plans to continue working to change the state's test-centric focus and "create schools that are student-centered and future-ready."
Turner served as Coppell ISD's Superintendent for 12 years. In a news release, he said he is most proud of the district's learner success and teacher engagement.
"Through this work of engagement, Coppell ISD has become a shining example of what education should be in the future," he said.
District spokesperson Tamerah Ringo said the school board plans to meet and discuss the search for Turner's replacement, but nothing has been scheduled yet.
