Joshua athletics director Mike Burt resigns after five years
After five years as Director of Athletics at Joshua ISD, Mike Burt has resigned. According to Mike Leasor, attorney for the school district, an internal investigation was conducted against Burt after an anonymous complaint was lodged with the district.
“There was an investigation done, it was a short investigation, because at the time - this was more than a month ago - there were no witnesses or anybody to talk to,” Leasor said in an interview with the Star.
Repeated calls to Burt went unanswered by press time.
Burt has been with the district since 2013. He previously worked for Dumas ISD from 2007-2013 and before that Bridgeport High School from 2005-2006. He taught in athletic and academic settings in several other school districts earlier in his career.
