Paradise ISD’s sewage system is still undergoing repair – and the district will still need to pay outside companies to cart off waste materials until students get out for winter break.

Assistant Superintendent Patti Seckman said the final part needed to fix the district’s ailing wastewater system has still not arrived. During the school board’s regular meeting Monday, Superintendent Monty Chapman recommended the district go ahead and hire engineer Rick Lundsford to assess a future upgrade.

Lundsford oversaw the school’s last wastewater plant expansion.


Superintendent evaluation forms were passed out to board members, who will use them to assess Chapman’s performance. The evaluations are slated to be turned over to board president Homer Mundy by the next regular meeting Tuesday, Jan. 18.

In other business:

  • Scott Eisen made a motion, seconded by Carrie Preather, to approve the consent agenda, which passed unanimously.
  • Eisen also moved, seconded by Rusty Ford, to approve budget amendments presented by Mrs. Seckman. That, too, passed unanimously.
  • Eisen moved and Preather seconded to approve the reviewed Policy CDA, which passed unanimously.
