CHESTER – The Chester ISD Board of Trustees President Bryan Martin got the regular monthly meeting going on Monday evening at 6 p.m., July 17, with six of the seven board members present along with three district employees and this writer.

District business manager Austin Odom presented updates on revenues and expenditures (repair of leaks in old gym for example) and updated members on bond construction plans. Input is currently being gathered on specific details for the new junior/senior high school building with goal to have architectural work done by September so bids can go out in October.

Superintendent Paul Drake updated board on staffing:  all classroom teachers are hired, and all are certified. The states A-F grading system should have all the test scores sent to district by August 11 with potential for some changes from last year.

The consent agenda was quickly approved, and three action items were taken up:  1) the 2023-24 Compensation Plan was approved after a good discussion; 2) the 2023-24 Employee Handbook was approved as submitted; and 3) the 2023-24 student handbook was tabled till next meeting.

The meeting ended at 7:45 upon completion of a 48-minute executive session with no action taken.  The board meets August 21 but may have a budget meeting prior to then.  Board training is set for August 24 in Beaumont.
