Chisum Independent School District trustees tabled action on the contract for Superintendent Diane Stegall while the North Lamar ISD school board voted to extend Superintendent James Dawson‘s contract.
The CISD board spent about an hour in closed session with attorney Sara Leon from the Austin law firm of Powell & Leon, as well as discussing the superintendent’s evaluation and a contract for 2013-2016.
“I move we take no action, we table item 14 until a later date,” trustee Jimmy Caffee said after coming out of the closed session. Item 14 on the agenda was the open session consideration of Stegall’s contract.
Dashielle Floyd, who has stepped down as board president, seconded the motion. Floyd declined to comment on her resignation.
At North Lamar, the school board extended Dawson’s contract until the 2015-2016 school year.
CISD board’s acting president, Larry Rickman, said he was not sure if Stegall’s contract would come up again at February’s meeting.
“My plan is to continue working under my current contract to fulfill the vision of Chisum ISD to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s world,” Stegall said in a statement Tuesday morning.
