Gold-Burg trustee resigns

Gold-Burg Independent School District Trustees accepted the resignation of a board member Wednesday night and postponed its evaluation of the superintendent until June.
Rebecca Horton submitted her resignation to the board. She has served the board four years and was elected to a new term last November. Horton stated in her resignation it was her great pleasure to serve on the board but at this time my personal and work life need my focus.”
No decision was made on how to fill the vacancy, but it will be placed on the Feb. 20 meeting agenda.
In discussion on Superintendent Roger Ellis’ annual evaluation he recommended it be postponed until June as it would allow the board a full year of school activity and fresh testing data. He added trustees are elected in November and this would allow them time to participate in the process. That recommendation was approved.
The board accepted the Four Feathers Security installation with modification, along with a series of state policy updates that impact local policies. The security system is for the entire campus.
In the superintendent’s report, Ellis said the lighting retrofit is complete with the exception of exit signs to be replaced in the next few weeks.
