He was a leader for his school district, but we learned Sunday night that Dr. Ralph Draper will no longer be a part of Spring ISD.

Superintendent Draper's retirement comes less than five months after he came under fire for a deadly stabbing at Spring High School.

The Spring ISD school board will discuss Draper's retirement Tuesday during a closed meeting at the Gordon Anderson Leadership Center.

According to the agenda, the board will discuss the superintendent's contract and timeline for retirement. They'll also be discussing the appointment of an interim superintendent.

We placed calls Sunday night to get a comment from the district spokesperson on this matter. Draper and the district came under fire following the stabbing of a student at Spring High School in September. Joshua Broussard, 17, died and three others were injured.

More than 130 students left the school following the death. Some members of the community even called for Draper's resignation after the crime and reports of gang issues within the district.
