LISD board members to tour high school campus, assess needs
Polk County Enterprise, October 2007
LIVINGSTON – Livingston Independent School District trustees are scheduled to tour the high school campus with Dr. Darrell Myers Monday morning and will convene for a special-called board meeting that night.
The high school tour, which will begin at 11:30 a.m. and include lunch on campus, is one of a series of tours the superintendent and board members are taking this fall in order to better understand facility, student and staff needs.
Monday’s board meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the LISD Administration Office on South Houston Avenue.
A workshop session with Architect Kevin Smith tops the agenda.
Smith is employed with Clay Comb Associations of Dallas, the firm hired to help district officials address facility needs.
Trustees are also scheduled to approve a nominee to the Polk Central Appraisal District Board of Directors, a matter which was tabled at the board’s regular meeting Sept. 17.
LISD is presently represented on the appraisal board by Cliff Kellett and Kathy Freeman.
Personnel matters dominate the remainder of the agenda for Monday’s special-called meeting, with trustees to receive notification from the superintendent about resignations and hiring of auxiliary personnel and to consider resignations and hiring of professional staff.
Among those professional personnel changes will be the resignation of Shelly Hullihen, assistant superintendent for student support services.
Hullihen has accepted a position with San Angelo ISD, which has been headed since the first of this year by former Livingston ISD Superintendent Dr. Carol Ann Bonds. Trustees are expected to formally accept Hullihen’s resignation and approve hiring of a replacement Monday night.
Trustees will discuss in closed session the purchase of real property, returning to open session to take any necessary action.
