Burleson ISD schedules search firm interviews

Special meeting on Dec. 20

Burleson ISD Superintendent Richard Crummel announced at Monday night’s board of trustees meeting that the board will hold a Dec. 20 meeting to interview search firms and make a selection to move forward with the new superintendent selection process.

Crummel said he has invited four search firms to a Dec. 20 meeting to make presentations and two had responded as of Monday night. At the meeting, each firm will be able to make a presentation and have a 30-minute question and answer session. The board will then select a search firm to help find a new superintendent after Crummel retires at the end of the 2012-13 school year.

Crummel called the search firms the “Big Four” and said they’re familiar with the north Texas area. The meeting will be open to the public so the community has an opportunity for input. 

“The search firm will have a process to show how they will involve the community, whether it’s surveys or public meetings,” Crummel said.

Once a search firm is selected, the board will then begin advertising the position and hopes to have a new superintendent hired by the end of the spring semester.

Trustees recognized the district’s Reading Bee winners from each elementary school, including the district-wide winner Walker Crane from Brock Elementary School. The BISD Reading Bee is a competition where second-graders from across the district read three passages in front of judges and are graded on accuracy, fluency and comprehension. One second-grader was selected to represent their elementary school at the district competition, and Crane won the championship out of the 10 readers. Crane represented BISD at the North Texas Reading Bee Championship on Nov. 17 at Texas Christian University. 

James Fitts, a certified public accountant with Weaver, L.L.P., in Fort Worth, briefed the board and meeting attendees on the district’s clean audit.
