Eagle Ford: Stockdale ISD welcomes new trustee
STOCKDALE -- The Stockdale Independent School District board of trustees’ structure has changed again, with Mauro Monita as the new District 1 trustee.
According to Stockdale ISD Superintendent Paul Darilek after the Oct. 9 regular meeting, Monita replaces Leroy Sanchez, whose resignation was accepted during the Sept. 17 special called meeting. Sanchez cited business reasons for his resignation.
Sanchez is the second trustee to resign since the May elections. Craig Clancy was appointed May 29 to fill the District 2 position, replacing Rick Rutland, who served approximately 18 years.
Darilek said both men will have the opportunity to place their names on the May 2013 ballot to run for their respective seats. Appointees do not complete the unexpired terms, but serve only until the next trustee election.
Other new faces added to the district’s Wilson County adjunct staff members list are Joselyn Kotzur and Ismaro Cardenas, Wilson County AgriLife Extension Service personnel. They, along with Lisa Linebarger, work with the students in the 4-H extracurricular activities.
In yet another change, the school district will soon be looking for a replacement for Lynn Ray West, who announced his resignation. West has served as the school’s representative on the Wilson County Appraisal District board of directors for the past nine years. West also served as the director for the city of Stockdale. The trustees tabled until November the agenda item to name his replacement.
In financial matters, the school district was given a clean and good 2011-12 fiscal year audit report by certified public accountant Cameron Gulley. Darilek said the fund balance is down $120,000 from a year prior. The reduction is due to the completion of the tennis court project, costing the school district $400,000. Darilek said the school had designated up to $450,000 for this project.
Darilek said the school district’s next project will be to upgrade the track. Improvements include moving the bleachers to allow for the installation of an all-weather track. Funding will come from money set aside for future projects; the district committed $500,000 to this during its Sept. 10 meeting.
