Yet another vote of confidence was given this week to Pauls Valley school administrators as each had their contracts renewed for next year’s school term.

No changes were seen as each of the school officials already working in their respective positions throughout the district were approved by all five members of the Pauls Valley Board of Education during a regular meeting.

“They were all rehired,” Superintendent Bobby Russell said.

The action means each of the administrators have been given new one-year contracts for the upcoming 2006-2007 school year.

Having familiar faces in the leadership roles also means the district will continue with its overall stability when it comes to personnel, according to Russell.

“Right now we’re very stable, which is kind of nice. We’re very fortunate, in my opinion, to have the administrators we do,” he said.

“We have very few incidents at the school sites. We have for sure very few major problems of any kind. That’s due to not only our administrators but the working relationship between our administrators and their staff.

“They do an outstanding job.”

Getting new contracts were Darsha Huckabaa, assistant superintendent; Jeanie Menefee, Jefferson Early Learning Center principal; Martha Graham, junior high principal; Peter Campbell, high school principal and athletic director; Chris Caldwell, dean of students and assistant athletic director; Travis Thompson, junior high dean of students and assistant athletic director; Kristin Holt, Lee Elementary principal; and Elaine Kennedy, Jackson Elementary principal.

Others getting the official OK from the board were Woody Bearden, Garvin County Cooperative and special education director; Theola Jackson, alternative education coordinator; Beverly Carson, adult education director; Larry Crull, plant services director; Terry Jones, transportation coordinator; and George Rozzell, 21st Century grant director.

Russell himself was given a new three-year contract during a meeting last month, which is the maximum time period allowed for superintendents.
