GROVETON — The Groveton ISD Board of Trustees authorized Superintendent Jim Dillard to execute contracts in order to fill open teaching positions in the district.

At its regular meeting on March 20, Dillard was given the power to execute contracts from April through August.

Dillard said the district has seven open positions in its campuses, so this gives him the opportunity to contract interested teachers as soon as possible. He said it made things easier, as this is the time of year all districts are looking to fill open spots.

“I don’t see the teacher shortage ending anytime soon, but until state starts to compensate teachers for what they’re worth, this will continue,” he said.

In a related matter, the board discussed teacher contracts, and approved all recommended renewals.

In a separate matter, the board discussed current enrollment, which Dillard said is holding steady, and even rising.

Dillard said that he is predicting between 700-800 students to be enrolled at the beginning of the next school year, since there are more enrollments and more interest in the district coming in each day.
