Premont ISD Superintendent Working to Save School

Posted: Updated:

Jim Wells County's Premont Independent School District Superintendent is in Austin working on a special partnership.

Ernest Singleton plans to meet with Texas Commissioner of Education and Texas A&M University-Kingsville President to join forces.

Premont ISD was on the brink of closure by the state nearly two-years ago after continual poor grades and financial trouble. Singleton says his solution to prevent this from happening again is to join with Texas A&M-Kingsville.

Premont ISD is still awaiting official word if they will remain open next year. Singleton says he is confident they will remain open.
