Susan Haynes, principal at Early High School since 2009, has resigned from the Early Independent School District, effective Friday.

EISD Superintendent Brett Koch said the board of trustees would meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at the new administration office, which formerly was the EISD's kindergarten building.

"We'll get to work and find someone," Koch said. He said his understanding was that Haynes had decided to retire, that she did not have plans to go to another district. Haynes had been an outstanding principal, Koch said.

"We'll have the specially called board meeting on Thursday and decide which direction to go," Koch said. "Time's short, but something will work out."
