After an election which saw one incumbent unseated and a vacant seat filled, the Alvord ISD board of trustees will swear in two new members Thursday evening.
Charlie Matthews defeated Jeannette Ward, who has held place 7 for two terms, and will take her seat on the board.
Lance Thweatt won a three-person race to fill place 6, vacated by Randy Hamilton last June.
After administering the oath, the board will reorganize and elect officers.
Principals will report, and Superintendent Bill Branum will update the board on the district’s investments and plans to build a greenhouse to be used in science classes.
Other items on the agenda include:
- roof work at the high school, to be done with committed fund balance;
- a contract with the Education Service Center for 2014-15;
- purchase of two school buses, also with committed balance;
- naming selection committees for faculty and principals;
- authorizing a public auction for properties that have been struck off the tax rolls; and
- moving the Walker Scholarship fund from CitiBank to Legend Bank;
- updating the superintendent evaluation form;
- changes in authorized signers for various bank accounts;
- an executive session to discuss the vacancy at middle school principal.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the administration building at 100 Mosley Lane. It is open to the public.
