PISD Board Approves Renovations at Softball Field, Hires CFO

After over two years of proposals and revisions, the Perryton ISD Board of Trustees approved an agreement with Huseman Builders for remodeling the Rangerette Softball field.  The agreement will address the drainage issues that have caused rainwater to run onto the field for many years. Board member Wes Beal pointed out an inconsistency between the agreement and a proposal the board approved last month related to who pays for the insurance and bond on the project but made a motion to approve the contract, subject to resolution of this discrepancy.  The motion passed 5-1 with Richard Beyea, attending via Zoom, voting against.

In other action during this special called meeting, the board approved the hiring of Britney Meraz for the Chief Financial Officer position currently held by Doug Kile.  Kile announced in January that he would be resigning at the end of December, 2021.  Meraz will be working with Kile until then to learn the ins and outs of school finance.  Meraz will officially start October 1, but she will work on a daily rate, as available, until that time.  She is currently serving as the Ochiltree County Treasurer.

The board also approved the hiring of Kat Broome as Wright Elementary Assistant Principal.  Broome served as counselor on that campus this past year.  Current Wright Assistant Principal, Sonia Parra, will become the coordinator of the district’s dual-language program.

The next scheduled meeting of the PISD Board is Tuesday, June 22 at 6:00 pm at the PISD Administration Building.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 with a public forum and executive session and the regular meeting will begin at approximately 7:00 p.m.   The meeting will be broadcast live on the Perryton ISD Facebook page.
