The Stephenville ISD met Monday at the Bond Auditorium with a full agenda including an item to consider the approval of pay for hourly employees for Dec. 10 - the third ice day the school district took this month.
The board unanimously agreed to pass the item, and it was noted the funds used to pay the hourly individuals will not cost the school district anything in excess of what was already budgeted.
The board intervened because the school district issues only two bad weather days per school year. The two were originally used on Dec. 6 and Dec. 9, leaving Dec. 10's status uncertain.
The board also heard the district's annual audit and compliance report. The report showed numerous financial and demographic statistics and reports about the 2012-13 fiscal year, which ended Aug. 31.
Notable numbers include the fund balance, which ended at $10.457 million. The amount was a positive variance with $852,357 more than what was originally included in the final budget.
Also included in the report was student enrollment. The number of students in 2013 was 3,693, an increase of only 171 students in 2004.
Superintendent Dr. Darrell Floyd also announced that Dr. Joyce Anderson, director of guidance and testing, will retire at the end of the school year, and Hook Elementary Principal Kathy Haynes will fill the position.
With the adjustment, Michelle McNutt will also receive a new title, director of curriculum, instruction and federal programs.
"We sincerely appreciate Dr. Anderson's many years of service to SISD, and we look forward to Mrs. Haynes continuing to build on that tradition of excellence," Floyd said.
