From The News-Courier staff—
MUNDAY—Following a closed executive session, the Munday Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees approved one-year extensions for the contracts of principals Kristi Bufkin and Drew Drury and band director Trey Singleton at its regular monthly meeting last Thursday.
Supt. Troy Parton was also given permission to open two teaching positions, a technology teacher and a junior high teacher.
Earlier in a report about progress with a partnership with Rolling Plains Head Start, Parton mentioned the idea of moving the sixth grade to junior high.
Parton also reported on progress of door replacements, new lighting and the safety grant and indicated two bids were received for a sprinkler system at the elementary school. The trustees asked him to get both bids itemized.
In staff reports, the trustees learned that 265 students were enrolled at the elementary and 121 at the high school and heard about progress being made toward HRS certification and about the school’s successful basketball season, the success of the debate team and the new UIL realignment.
With five candidates signed up for the three spots, the board called for an election to be held May 2. (See related story)
