In a special school board meeting on Dec. 9, 2009, the Angleton School Board accepted the resignation of Dr. Heath Burns, Superintendent, effective February 18, 2009. They also "approved to announce Dr. Patricia Montgomery as sole finalist to be considered for hiring as the new superintendent of Angleton Independent School District, following the statutory waiting period of 21 days."
Dr. Heath Burns has been selected as the new superintendent for Abilene ISD in Abilene, TX. “The decision to move my family is bitter-sweet,” Burns said. “We have been proud to call Angleton ISD home for over five years. We have made lasting friendships, and our lives have been changed drastically for the better for having served here with you.”
Burns was named Angleton ISD superintendent in August 2004 and began his tenure there in October 2004.
