DECATUR BOARD TO VOTE ON REORGANIZATION – Decatur ISD trustees will consider the reorganization of board officers tonight in their first meeting since recording the 4-3 vote to keep superintendent Judi Whitis on the job last month. Board President Wade Watson said the reorganization discussion was placed on the agenda at the request of another trustee. “There are differing views on the board as evidenced by the 4-3 split vote,” Watson said. “If it’s the board’s decision for someone else to be president, I’ll respect the board’s decision.” Trustees will also discuss the construction projects at the high school – the bistro and athletic facilities. Trustees will also consider raising lunch prices by 10 cents to $2.70 at the elementary campuses and $2.90 at the secondary campuses.
