The meeting was posted Friday afternoon with the items under closed session – superintendent goals, objectives and duties, superintendent performance and evaluation and superintendent contract.

The lone item listed after executive session is “consider action regarding the superintendent’s contract including but not limited to any necessary administrative action by the board.”

Decatur ISD School Board President Wade Watson confirmed that along with goals and objectives, action regarding the superintendent’s contract would be discussed.

The meeting was set for Tuesday to ensure all board members could attend.

Whitis arrived in Decatur in July 2017 to replace the retiring Rod Townsend. She previously served as the superintendent at Valley Mills ISD. She also had a tenure as the superintendent at Fort Davis.

In February, trustees gave a unanimous approval of her performance. Trustees added a year to Whitis’ contract that will run through July 30, 2021, and gave her a $3,000 raise. With the raise effective March 1, her annual salary is $158,000.
