News Staff's picture

The Roby CISD Board of Trustees met in a specialcalled meeting last week, where after calling for a vote to extend his contract until 2022, Superintendent Keith Cook’s had one less favorable vote. With two board members absent, a majority vote of 3 – 2 approved the contract extension through the 2022 school year.

During the regularly scheduled board meeting held January 13, the sevenmember board convened for near two hours in executive session to discuss the superintendent’s annual evaluation and contract renewal. After reconvening the open session, the trustees returned a 6 – 1 vote in favor of extending Cook’s contract through the 2021 school year, with board member Danny Carrion being the only opposing vote.

In the days following the meeting, sources say board members received an email outlining the minutes from the meeting, which showed the contract extension through the 2022 school year. This created debate as to the accuracy of the minutes and officials reviewed the meeting’s recording for verification purposes.
