Katy ISD Superintendent Lance Hindt has been accused of brutal bullying during his years in the public school system. In fact, Hindt has been accused of violently shoving his former classmate Gregg Barrett’s head down a urinal in the bathrooms of West Memorial Junior High. Barrett was almost bullied to the point of no return. After this particular incident and many others, Barrett contemplated suicide and even had his father’s .45 in his mouth. While Hindt denies the claim, many witnesses have backed up the bullying allegations. Hindt even seemed to laugh when Barrett confronted him in public at last week’s KISD Board meeting. These are not the actions of a Superintendent of a growing school district, they are the behaviors of a playground bully.

Court records from 1983 indicate that Hindt had a personal injury lawsuit in which he fractured defendant William Stein's skull, broke 3 ribs, and dislocated his shoulder; consequently, leaving him in a coma for 5 days and requiring two brain surgeries. A five-figure settlement later led to charges being dropped. Read the full report in the link provided.
First he denies Mr. Barrett's allegations, but he cannot deny this incident. Enough is enough. Dr. Hindt should not be leading our district. The KatyISD Board needs to step up and take action against Dr. Hindt.
Alabama 10th Circuit Judge David Carpenter, a former classmate of Dr. Hindt, recalls Dr. Hindt's predatory behavior as he physically threatened many of his football teammates that were weaker than him. Judge Carpenter claims that Dr. Hindt even threw 25 pound weight plates at his teammates and boasted about beating people up. Dr. Hindt has declined several requests to respond to these allegations.

It is disturbing how a man can bully so many people, some nearly to death, and get away with it. We need our kids to see a role model, not a perpetrator of violence.
This is beyond problematic to the students, parents, teachers, and community members of Katy ISD. How can we expect our schools to foster a safe environment for all students and stand up to bullying if our superintendent was a bully himself and refuses to apologize? Even if the incident occurred more than 35 years ago, he should not be excused, especially if he is running a school district. Bullying is bullying and should not be tolerated. We talk about zero tolerance for crimes, which Dr. Hindt commited. We need to be talking about zero tolerance for bullying and bully behavior.
We urge the Katy ISD Board of Trustees to quickly terminate Superintendent Lance Hindt for the now proven allegations against him. Hindt should resign or be fired immediately and apologize to the two men he nearly killed.
We live in the 21st century where we have more educated people than eveer before. KatyISD can find a as qualified superintendent who is and empathetic and does not have a history of violence and an inability to apologize. The board's support for Dr. Hindt is inexcusable.
Everyone should be concerned about these allegations as 1 in 3 US students have been bullied at school and the effects (suicide, depression, anxiety, health complaints, decreased academic achievement, etc.) are traumatizing, lasting into adulthood.
We need to hold Superintendent Hindt accountable for his actions and not tolerate bullying.
