Perrin names lone finalist for superintendent

PERRIN ­– Cliff Gilmore has been selected as the lone finalist to fill the Perrin-Whitt CISD Superintendent position.

Board members made the unanimous decision after a 17-minute closed session during Tuesday night’s regular meeting. Gilmore was one of 30 applicants said to have applied for the position and one of five candidates interviewed, according to Interim Superintendent W.R. Tucker.

Gilmore is retired but most recently worked for the Aspermont ISD. He replaces John Kuhn, who resigned earlier this summer to take the superintendent position in Mineral Wells.

The lone finalist must now wait 21 days before being offered a contract. It was unclear when Gilmore would take over.

In other activity, the board approved the 2nd reading of TASB local and legal policy update 106 which will require installation of cameras with audio and video in every place a special education student goes if a parent requests it. Perrin Elementary has had such a request, Tucker said.

Elementary Principal Amy Salazar says the student uses about 4-5 rooms. It was unclear on how much installation of said cameras would cost, even if the cameras are just installed in the main classroom.

Tucker said TASB will be cutting the district an insurance check for $20,000 for vandalism at the school this week.  Once bills and invoices begin coming in, negotiations on the rest of the monies will begin and a second check issued.
