South San ISD long time board member Connie Prado steps down

Prado announced resignation at Wednesday night’s board meeting

South San Independent School District board member Connie Prado bid farewell to the district after 25 years of service during a meeting Wednesday night.

Prado announced in 2020 that she would be stepping down, but she remained on the school board. Prado told KSAT over the phone she was grateful for having served the community for 25-years, but her focus would not be on enjoying her retirement.

Her decision to leave comes at a time of instability for the local school district in the middle of controversy.

The board has undergone countless meetings with the Texas Education Agency involving disputes concerning incoming superintendents.

It is unclear who will take Connie Prado’s seat at this time. KSAT will keep you updated when more information becomes available.
