Poth ISD trustees name Scott Caloss as finalist; address staff issues
POTH -- In addition to naming Interim Superintendent Scott Caloss as the lone finalist in the Poth Independent School District’s superintendent search, the district’s trustees also have addressed other staffing concerns.
During the Aug. 27 board meeting, trustees addressed the employment of two teachers during an executive session, returning to an open meeting to confirm decisions. Tracy Parsons has been hired to fill the position vacated by Patti Seidenberger as a third-grade teacher. The trustees also accepted the resignation of Poth High School social studies teacher Jesse Husbands, hired during the summer to replace Fred Radske. Husbands offered his resignation before the school year commenced.
During the same closed session, Scott Caloss’ authority to hire a replacement for Husbands also was approved. While Caloss was initially approved as the interim superintendent, filling the vacancy left by Andy Peters, the board named Caloss the lone finalist in its search for a new superintendent. The board is required, however, to wait 21 days to announce a final decision.
In other business, the board approved renewal of an interlocal agreement with the Wilson County juvenile justice alternative education program and disciplinary alternative education program. This action was predominantly a formality and required no discussion.
The trustees also approved rescheduling the next regular board meeting from the second Monday, Sept. 10, to Monday, Sept. 24.
