Sulphur Springs Independent School District trustees plan to recognize two women for their service to the school district. Rowena Johnson will be honored for 50 years of service with the district. The long-time educator notified school officials in March of her plans to retire.
Also to be recognized for serving two years as president of SSISD Board of Trustees is Robbin Vaughn. Last year, she agreed to another year president of the school board.
The pair will be recognized during the regular monthly meeting of SSISD Board of Trustees, which begins at 6 p.m. June 8, in the board room at SSISD Administration Building, 631 Connally St.
During the report portion of the meeting Assistant Superintendent Rusty Harden is scheduled to report on the 45-day contract release date, Assistant Superintendent Kristin Monk will report on summer activities throughout SSISD. Assistant Superintendent Josh Williams Jeffrey Denton and Gerald Grafton are scheduled to give academic UIL reports.
The board has five regular action items they will be asked to consider:
- five required and two previously board-approved innovative courses;
- Bids for mobile and handheld radios;
- Purchase of iPads for kindergarten-third grade students;
- Credit by Exam testing dates; and
- Contracted services with Region 8 Education Service Center for the 2020-2021 school year.
The SSISD board of trustees is also slated to hold a budget work session, then enter into executive session to consider professional employment contracts for 2020-2021, including summer contracts due to mid-term hire dates; and any other personnel or real property matters recommended for board consideration since the last board meeting. The board would return to open session for action on any items pushed forward from the executive session for a vote.
