RISING STAR, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Monty Jones has been appointed as the Acting Superintendent after the Rising Star ISD Board of Trustees approved Robby Stuteville’s resignation.

In January, a third-grade student found Stuteville’s firearm in the bathroom and immediately told a teacher. Parents said they did not receive a notification shortly after the event and expressed concerns at a meeting earlier this month. Many agreed that they were not happy about being left in the dark about this incident.
