New band director hired


Yorktown ISD trustees tackled several items at their monthly meeting on Monday, July 21 at the Yorktown Jr. High Library. Board members present were president Mark Weischwill, Todd Metting, Barry Watson, Randy Franke, Danette Respondek and Nelda Sertuche. Member Patti Harbers was absent.
Following a brief closed session, board members voted to extend a one year band director probationary contract to William Waltemath. The motion carried 6-0.  At the board meeting in June, the board voted to hire Steven Smith for the position, but according to YISD Superintendent Alan Umholtz, Smith chose not to come for personal reasons. Trustees also voted to extend one year probationary teacher contracts to Sarah Owen and Zachary Guenther.
In other business, trustees heard a report on the building project by Kim Singleton of JSA Architects. It was reported progress on the construction is still behind schedule, but it is hoped the new gym will be completed by Thanksgiving.
