Fagen submits resignation letter

Contract in Texas will pay superintendent $298,000

Douglas County School District Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen officially submitted her resignation letter to the board of education June 15.

Fagen was appointed the new superintendent of the Humble Independent School District by a 6-0 vote June 14. Her resignation in Douglas County is effective July 4.

"I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve as the superintendent of DCSD. During the past six years our talented staff members have accomplished extraordinary things in the best interest of our students, despite the worst recession of my lifetime and many other very complicated circumstances," Fagen wrote in the letter. "We know that our work has not been perfect - we have continuously learned and grown... our resiliency and hard work has produced tremendous results for students, staff, and our community in alignment with DCSD's values, direction, and policies."

Fagen will be getting a raise in Humble, which has nearly 30,000 fewer students than DCSD. She was offered a five-year contract with a base salary of $298,000 per year, according to multiple Houston-area media reports. Fagen made $273,715 per year to lead the Douglas County district, which has 67,000 students compared to 39,000 in Humble.
