The Paradise ISD board of trustees renewed its contract with Wise County for a sheriff’s deputy to be the district’s school resource officer.
Monday night, the district agreed to pay $15,500 for the officer’s service, which only covers time during the school day. Special events and game nights are billed as overtime.
PISD will hold an election for board places 3, 4 and 5 this fall.
The filing period for candidates starts July 19 and ends Aug. 18. The election is Nov. 4.
The board also agreed to hire the accounting firm of Hankins, Eastup, Deaton, Tonn and Seay to conduct the district’s annual audit. The firm will look at PISD’s major funds, activities and financial statements, costing the district $16,500.
