Coahoma ISD and Big Spring ISD school board meetings this week
Reorganization of the board is among the business set before Coahoma Independent School District trustees Thursday.
The board convenes at 7 p.m. in the faculty dining room at Coahoma Elementary School.
Early on, trustees will canvass last Saturdayâ€™s board election, which unofficially witnessed incumbents Brian Moore, Jody Reid and Alan Wright retain their seats, despite a chose challenge from Leslie Tindol, Gerald King and Paul Lewis.
Reid was the top vote-getter with 202 ballots (27.71 percent). Moore followed with 189 (25.93 percent) and Wright garnered 112 (15.36 percent). Tindol brought in 102 ballots â€” just 10 shy of tying Wright â€” while King received 73 and Lewis garnered 51 (7 percent).
Once the board approves election results, it will reorganize, electing a president, vice president and secretary.
Pending resignations, retirements and employments are on Thursdayâ€™s agenda, as is a facilities update, enrollment report and budget update.
Student recognition and presentations will be held along with routine business.
