Alvord school board extends Branum’s contract

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, March 8, 2014

Alvord ISD Superintendent Bill Branum got a contract extension Tuesday night – but other administrators in the district will have to wait a while for board action.

Meeting on election night Tuesday with a lot of other things going on, the board took care of two items on its three-item agenda and postponed the other until they meet again.

At the top of the list was amending the election order approved at the previous meeting.

At that time, it looked like the city of Alvord was not going to be required to hold an election, with no contested races – meaning school district employees would handle mail-in ballots and a host of other matters, although voting would still be held at City Hall.

However, the city council ballot for the May 10 election did draw some last-minute interest, so the school board amended its order to put City Secretary Pam Sereika back in charge of handling the election.

The board voted unanimously to extend Branum’s contract through June 30, 2017.

The contracts of the high school and elementary principals, athletic director and technology director will be on the agenda March 27.

School dismissed early Friday for spring break and will resume March 17.
