The Alvord School Board this week signaled its support for Superintendent Randy Brown.

Following the annual closed-door superintendent evaluation at Monday’s meeting, the school board voted to extend Brown’s contract another year and increase his salary by 3 percent. That’s the same percentage increase all district employees received earlier this school year.

Brown’s new salary will be $119,000. His contract now runs through June 2022.

He has served as superintendent of the district since August 2015.

In other business, the board received the annual financial audit report from Steve Gilliam. He told the board it was a clean audit.

The board also discussed placing its elementary gym renovation project on hold due to a recent Texas Supreme Court decision upholding a lawsuit regarding the taxation of heavy equipment related to oil and gas business. That lawsuit will require local entities who taxed certain oil and gas related items to pay back taxes collected over a period of years.

More information about the effects of that lawsuit on local taxing entities will be featured in an upcoming Wise County Messenger story.
