New Waverly school board extends Hail’s contract

February 2608:41 AM

NEW WAVERLY — Superintendent Darol Hail will remain at the helm of the district through June of 2021. That’s thanks to a unanimous vote taken Tuesday by the New Waverly ISD Board of Trustees.  The vote, taken after a lengthy executive session, will guarantee Hail a 10th year at the helm, after he was named superintendent in 2011.  “This was an easy decision for the board to extend Dr. Hail’s contract,” New Waverly ISD board president Shane Barge said. “He has really made significant improvements within our schools and helped create a great tradition and pride in the community. This is also our first year without an assistant superintendent and he has done a great job dealing with that added pressure.” view article  arw

Clarksville ISD tax ratification solidifying financial standing

February 2608:40 AM

Local voters in August supported Clarksville ISD’s tax ratification request to prevent compression of its property tax rate, as called for by new state funding formulas, and the move is paying off for the district.  Trustees were surprised to learn the school district collected more than $100,000 more in funding in January than in January 2019, Superintendent Kermit Ward said.  “What we also learned in last month’s audit was that we added almost $300,000 to the fund balance, which is significant for a district the size of Clarksville,” Ward said. “We’re a little bit more healthy, and what that does is it allows us to act with a little more aggression about providing more opportunities for our kids.”   (02/27) view article  arw
