Premont ISD continues search for new superintendent

Premont Independent School District officals are continuing their search for a new superintendent after Interim Superintendent Eric Ramos was arrested on a marijuana possession charge by the Duval County Sheriff's Department.

PREMONT (KIII NEWS) - Premont Independent School District officials are continuing their search for a new superintendent after Interim Superintendent Eric Ramos was arrested on a marijuana possession charge by the Duval County Sheriff's Department.
 
It was Sept. 1 when Ramos was arrested after being pulled over in Duval County. The deputy who pulled him over said Ramos threw out a bag of marijuana. Former Superintendent Ernest Singleton is now filling Ramos' role.
 
Ramos' arrest came two weeks after the State announced that the district had finally met State academic standards for the first time in four years.
 
While the Premont ISD continues its search for a new superintendent, they are also looking to start up varsity football again. The program was axed in 2012 because it was too expensive and the district wanted to focus on academics because of the school's poor test scores. Now that scores are back up, the program is going to be resurrected.
