Craig Weston is the new principal at Carson Elementary.
Decatur ISD trustees approved a one-year contract for Weston Monday night. He will replace LeeAnn Farris, who resigned following the school year.
Weston is currently the principal at Park Glen Elementary in Keller.
Decatur ISD Superintendent Judi Whitis said the district went through a thorough process before hiring Weston.
“There were two panels — a teacher group and an administrative group,” Whitis said. “There’s been phone interviews that I’ve conducted as far as the screening process. References were checked with current and former supervisors.
“He’s a seated elementary principal, working on a K-4 campus. He comes very highly recommended. It’s my pleasure to recommend Craig Weston as the Carson Elementary principal.”
The district also hired 15 teachers and a high school counselor. Whitis said four of the teachers jobs are additional staff members due to the district’s 4.5 percent growth.
The district is still looking to hire eight professional staff members and nine aides. Six of the aides are new positions.
