Alvord school board to meet again Thursday

By Messenger Staff | Published Wednesday, April 30, 2014

The Alvord school board will convene again Thursday, with the contract of embattled head football coach Curtis Enis once again on the agenda.

The board deadlocked on a proposed renewal of Enis’ contract on March 27. Since then, they have met three times, each time considering what action to take on the contract of the head football coach and athletic director.

On April 14, with Randy Hamilton back on the board after resigning last June, trustees voted 4-3 to give notice of termination. But after a two-hour closed session, they voted unanimously to rescind that action.

A week later, they met in closed session for several hours but took no action.

On April 24 they met again, this time going into a 30-minute closed session before emerging to once again unanimously table action on the AD’s contract.

Thursday’s meeting will be the fifth in five weeks with those items on the agenda. This time the wording for item No. 5 is “Contract for head football coach” and item No. 6 states, “Giving notice of intent to propose non-renewal of athletic director’s contract.”

The board will also consider:

  • textbook adoptions
  • a re-roofing project on the high school building
  • budget amendment
  • an oil and gas lease with Pioneer Natural Resources
  • other personnel recommendations.

Another closed session is on the agenda, if needed. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Administration Building, 100 Mosley Lane. It’s open to the public.
