Former Big Spring ISD Superintendent Michael Downes won't head to court in Austin next week.

According to a Texas Education Agency Spokesperson, Downes' hearing set for November 4th was postponed to March 17th after Downes and his attorney made a request for an extension.

Downes is battling allegations he had an inappropriate relationship with a student at a career stop in Lefors, Texas.
