The SCISD board of trustees voted Monday night to extend Superintendent Billy Collins’ contract. The decision came following a lengthy executive session during which the board conducted their annual superintendent’s evaluation. The final vote on Collins’ new contract will be held at the board’s next meeting on February 7th.
Collins is completing his fifth year as SCISD superintendent. He said after the meeting that he and his family enjoy living in Eldorado and that he was pleased with the board’s decision to keep him around a little longer.
In other business, the board also voted to contract with T4C Construction of San Angelo to build a new home for the district. A site for the new home has yet to be determined. The price tag for the project has yet to be finalized but the board set a cap of $160,000.
