DUBLIN (May 11, 2017) – Thursday morning the Dublin ISD school board held a special session at 7 a.m. The board canvassed the election and hired six new employees. The board also temporarily suspended a portion of the Board Policy DC (Local) Employment Practices.
“Usually contract teachers are hired by the board upon Dr. Schneider’s recommendation,” superintendent secretary Glenna Ricks said. “But they suspended that portion of local policy DC, giving [Schneider] the ability to hire teachers through the summer, so every time we need to hire a teacher we don’t need to call a meeting or wait until the next meeting to hire them.”
The six new hires are Jessica Criswell, Jessica Grisham, Hallie McFarlin, Jamie Clark, Wendy Flynn and Pamela Kasinger. Which positions they will fill is still being determined.
