Superintendent Marc Puig voluntarily resigns from South San ISD after board voted to fire him

San Antonio – When Marc Puig took the reins at South San ISD in 2020 following turmoil between the South San ISD Board and the previous superintendent, he advised KSAT he was prepared to lead.

“When adversity strikes, leadership has to see the opportunity and when adversity strikes, leadership has to be prepared to say, OK, what’s the opportunity? What do we need to start doing differently to still thrive in the face of the challenges that are here?” Puig stated.

On Tuesday, the board formally voted on a separation settlement between the district and Puig, and he agreed to resign. His lawyer Neal Adams stated it was higher for everybody to transfer on.

“He gave his best to South San ISD,” Adams stated of Puig.

Puig was the district’s seventh superintendent lately.

In May, the board voted to fire Puig. He was positioned on administrative go away on the finish of 2021 following some feedback made on an open mic following a board meeting.

The board voted to place Henry Izaguirre as interim superintendent, whereas they performed an investigation.

Despite requests by KSAT, board leaders by no means offered info on who was conducting that investigation and what the findings have been.

Meantime, the board paid the salaries of two superintendents for about six months.

KSAT has put in a request to the college district to get a replica of the separation settlement between Puig and the district, we are going to present updates on what the board agreed to pay Puig as soon as the request has been answered.
