CROCKETT – On Monday, Jan. 25, the members of Crockett ISD Board of Trustees were honored for their service in recognition of School Board Appreciation Week. Among the gifts received by the trustees were handmade cards, monogrammed blankets and hoodies, Yeti cups, a flip-board and student-made floral arrangements.
The theme for Appreciation Week was “Rising Above.” CISD Superintendent John Emerich thanked the board members for their hard work.
Then representatives from the Early Childhood Learning Center, Crockett Elementary, Crockett Junior High and Crockett High School spoke on behalf of their students and expressed gratitude for the board members.
In other business, Emerich asked the board to determine a date for “Team of Eight” training and encouraged the members to consider goals for the upcoming school year.
The Board also voted to the Joint Agreement with the City of Crockett on the May 7, 2022 Board of Trustees Election. The representatives for District 1 and District 6, seats currently held by Ansel Bradshaw and Josh Crabtree, respectively, are up for re-election.
The board adjourned to executive session to discuss the appraisal and contract of the superintendent. When the Trustees returned to the Open Session, they voted to extend Emrich’s contract for another year.
A request had been made for a Level Three Hearing to consider possible action on a student/parent FNG(LOCAL), Level Three Appeal. After reconvening to open session, the appeal was denied.
