MWISD School Board entertained and informed


The Stuarts, she said, have provided funds for numerous projects. Since they came to Mineral Wells in 1976, Creighton said the couple and their business have been among “the most faithful donors and the the most faithful supporters.”

• Heard a report on attendance, which Superintendent Gail Haterius said is “holding steady.”

• Approved teacher contracts, including 235 contract renewals and 32 continuing contracts.

Trustees also accepted resignations, including Creighton's after 42 years in education, 39 of which were with MWISD. The district will host a reception for Creighton today, 3-4:30 p.m., in the hospitality room (P-1) of Ram Stadium. Creighton had previously retired in 1999 and continued to work for the district part time as PR director.

Other longtime district employees who will retire at the end of the year include Lynn Deisher, who teaches family and consumer science at MWHS and has been with the district for 29 years, and Cheryl Cowan, who teaches computer science at the junior high and has been with MWISD for 29 years.

Trustees also approved not renewing the contract for MWHS teacher and coach David Neal.

• Authorized Haterius to approve and sign an electrical provider contract. Chief Financial Officer Paul Hearn explained that the district's contract through the General Land Office with Reliant Energy will expire May 31. He said the district has advertised for proposals, with an April 19, 10 a.m., deadline, and he suggested giving Haterius the authority to approve and sign “the electricity contract that provides the best value to the district.”

Hearn added that he estimates the district could save close to $100,000, based on current rates.

• Approved an instructional materials allotment and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills certification for the 2013-14 school year.
