Carroll ISD Sept. 25 School Board Meeting Recap

CHS Students Emily Kennedy and Libby Lester lead the opening pledges.

Carroll ISD held a regularly scheduled meeting Monday, September 25 to discuss the reorganization of the Board positions, District of Innovation, policy updates and other agenda items.

The pledges and moment of silence were lead by Carroll High School students Emily Kennedy and Libby Lester.

Due to the recent departure of former Board President Chris Archer, who was elected to Southlake City Council, the Board was tasked with reorganizing their officers. The Board elected Sheri Mills to serve as President, Michelle Moore to serve as Vice President and Danny Gilpin to serve as Secretary for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year.

With the departure of Archer, there is a current vacancy for Place 7. The Board is accepting applications to fill that seat for the remainder of this school year. The individual will be appointed to serve in the vacancy until the May 2018 election when voters will elect a candidate to serve out the remaining year for Place 7. The person appointed by the Board will have the choice whether or not to run in the May 2018 election. The seat will come up for election again for a three-year term in May 2019. Applications for Place 7 are being accepted until noon Monday, October 2.

Interested applicants must complete the application and return it to the Superintendent’s Office, 2400 N. Carroll Avenue, Southlake, TX 76092. Applications will be accepted via US Mail, in person, fax (817-949-8228) or by email to Barbara.Yelton@southlakecarroll.edu.

Later in the meeting, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services, Janet McDade hosted a public meeting presenting on the District of Innovation designation available to districts around the state.

In May 2017, the Board passed a resolution that initiated the process of exploring and considering District of Innovation designation for CISD. McDade presented on the timeline and the committee responsibilities in the upcoming months. Over the next few meetings, the committees will look at various options that this designation gives the district ranging from the start date of classes to the hiring processes for new teachers, and formulate a local innovation plan for Carroll ISD. That plan will be presented to the School Board in November.

During the President’s report, newly elected President Sheri Mills read a proclamation stating that October 10, 2017, will be recognized as Texas Education Human Resources Day in appreciation for all that the staff of the HR department does to assist the district. Mills also spent time discussing the vacancy for Place 7 and the action that will be taken to fill that position.

Superintendent David Faltys spoke about the Ozarka Give Back Challenge results, Pink Out Game information, Homecoming parade and game information, and the upcoming ‘Dragons Go Blue Day’ on October 2. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear blue on Monday, October 2, as CISD kicks off National Bullying Prevention Month. Throughout the month, there will be activities, presentations and other events on campuses to promote an anti-bullying environment. Dr. Faltys also asked that campuses post to social media using the hashtag #DragonsGoBlue this month to show support for bullying prevention.

Assistant Superintendent for Board and Community Relations, Julie Thannum provided the First Reading of the Local Policy Update 108.  After a brief question and answer session, the Board unanimously approved the First Reading of the Local Policy Update 108 as presented. Second reading will be scheduled for October 2 after Thannum obtains clarification from the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Policy Services on the Board’s role related to approving instructional materials.

The next Board meeting will be held Monday, October 2, at 5:30 p.m. at the Carroll ISD Administration Center.

Carroll School Board Accepting Applications To Fill Vacancy

Citizens interested in applying to fill the unexpired term for the Place 7 seat on the Carroll School Board must complete an application and turn it in to the CISD Superintendent’s Office by noon on Monday, October 2, 2017.

The Carroll School Board invites interested parents and taxpayers to volunteer their time and expertise to serve on the School Board. The seat was vacated this month by the resignation of Board President Chris Archer, who ran and was recently elected to fill a vacancy on the Southlake City Council.

School Board Vice President Sheri Mills said Trustees will consider all applications and select individuals to interview during Executive Session at a Special School Board meeting in October. The appointment will be made by majority vote of the School Board in open session.

The individual will be appointed to serve in the vacancy until the May 2018 election when voters will elect a candidate to serve out the remaining year for Place 7. The person appointed by the Board will have the choice whether or not to run in the May 2018 election. The seat will come up for election again for a three-year term in May 2019.

October 2017        Appointment to fill the Place 7 seat

May 2018                Election for Place 7 remaining one-year term

May 2019                Election for Place 7 three-year term

Interested applicants must complete the application and return it to the Superintendent’s Office, 2400 N. Carroll Avenue, Southlake, TX 76092 by Noon on Monday, October 2, 2017. Applications will be accepted via US Mail, in person, fax (817-949-8228) or by email to Barbara.Yelton@southlakecarroll.edu.

Mills said submitting an application does not necessarily guarantee participation or an interview. Applicants must certify that they are eligible to serve as a Trustee, have lived in Texas for the past 12 months and have lived in Carroll ISD for the past six months.
