East Central to post vacancy for superintendent position
EAST CENTRAL -- There weren’t many items on the agenda for the Dec. 17 regular monthly meeting of the East Central Independent School District (ISD) board of trustees, but a couple of important matters were addressed.
Following the recent announcement of Superintendent Gary Patterson’s retirement, it was unclear as to how his replacement would be hired. During last Tuesday’s meeting, the board decided to post the superintendent vacancy following the new year, but will not hire a search firm at this time.
The board also approved the appointment of John Massengale as trustee for District 3, pending his resignation from the China Grove City Council.
During the superintendent’s report, Patterson presented the January calendar of events, and Dr. Patti Birney discussed the 2013-14 District and Campus Improvement Plans.
The trustees also heard a presentation from Bobby Blount of the Bexar County School Board Coalition on the “Go Public” campaign. According to the coalition’s website, the purpose of the campaign, which will include a social media effort, website, and television and radio advertising, is “to inspire people across the region to take a step back and celebrate the positive and sustained impact public schools make on all of us.”
In other business, the trustees:
•Adopted Board Policy Update 98.
•Approved naming the high school tennis center the Cecil Vasquez Tennis Center.
