Katy ISD To Pay $750,000 To Superintendent Resigning Due To Bullying Accusations

Hindt has denied the claims but says he did “dumb things” prior to a religious awakening

Katy’s school district paid more than $750,000 to its superintendent who’s resigning at the end of the year in the wake of allegations that he was a bully as a teenager.

Details of a contract by the Katy school district show Superintendent Lance Hindt will receive two years of pay upon his departure Jan. 1.

He had announced his resignation last week.

At least two people have described Hindt as a bully during his middle and high school years. One of them, a circuit court judge in Alabama, has said Hindt was a “vicious bully.”

Hindt has denied the claims but says he did “dumb things” prior to a religious awakening.

The school board has hired a law firm to represent Hindt against claims that it describes as defamatory.
