Trustees approve administrative contracts,
call for May election
By Dolores Hamilton
Iowa Park school trustees renewed contracts of principals, counselors, administrators and directors, and called a Trustee Election for May 11 during their regular meeting Thursday.
In addition to renewing contracts, the board accepted the resignations of Carolyn Lalk, middle school librarian, and Kelley Milton, high school librarian, and hired K'Ann Graves as a special education aide at Bradford Elementary.
Contracts were renewed for the following:
Jonathan Club, Tax Assessor Collector
Sharon Godwin, Business Manager
Debra Brandt, Kidwell Principal
Vicki Adams, Kidwell Counselor
Vickie Jordan, Bradford Principal
Cari Di Marzio, Bradford Counselor
Tim Bartram, IPHS Principal
Gary Green, IPHS Assistant Principal
Jodi Schlaud, IPHS Academic Coordinator
Scott Ponder, IPHS Athletic Director
Tracy Catlin, IPHS Counselor
Darla Biddy, Middle School Principal
Brandi Catllin, Middle School Assistant Principal
Janet Bowling, Middle School Counselor
Jamie Shipp, Certified School Nurse
The Iowa Park CISD Trustee Election was called for May 11, with early voting taking place from April 29 through May 7. Two seats on the school board are up for re-election.
The Alcohol election will be piggybacked with the school election because it is for voters in Precinct 3 which extends outside the Iowa Park city limits.
The school calendar for 2013-14 was approved. School will start on August 26, and the last day of instruction will be May 29, with graduation on May 31.
The board conducted its annual review of the school district's investment policy. The policy was approved and, upon recommendation of the school's auditor, dedicated $2-million of the $4-million fund balance to future project needs.
