Less than a month before school starts, Calvert all-level principal Lynn Ponder resigned his post of six years to take a principal’s job with Dime Box ISD. The Calvert Board and Superintendent Maxie Morgan praised Ponder for his dedication to CISD and its students and wished him well. Ponder thanked the Board and Morgan for their consistent support.
In other business, the Board decided not to appoint a new member to its six-member panel. A vacancy occurred when former Board president Sandra Greaves resigned, but, after a 30 minute closed session, the Board opted not to appoint a replacement.
In other business, Morgan reported that 93% of its current tax levy, totaling $1,225,242, had been collected with a total of $1,286,339.45 (including back taxes, penalties and interest) collected this year.
