A new Early High School principal could be named as soon as Thursday, when trustees meet in a special called meeting.

The meeting has been called for 12:30 p.m., Thursday, and will be held in the board conference room of the Early Independent School District administration building, 1080 Early Blvd.

According to the agenda, the meeting is being called to consider the issuance and sale of tax building bonds and to discuss high school gym renovations. But, during the meeting, the board will also convene in closed session to discuss personnel matters including resignations and to review employee candidates.

Applications being considered are for the high school principal’s position and for the district’s gifted and talented program’s teacher. Those positions have been vacated by Wes and Lisa Beck, who are leaving the EISD for Wes Beck to accept the superintendent’s position at Shamrock ISD in the Texas Panhandle. Lisa Beck has also been offered a teaching position there. Other applications to be considered include the high school Spanish teacher, primary counselor and “others,” according to the agenda.

Following the closed session, the board will reconvene to open meeting to act on personnel matters.

The two items listed on the agenda as “new business” are printed below as presented by the district office:

Consider all matters incident and related to the issuance and sale of “Early Independent School District Unlimited Tax Building Bonds, Series 2007”, dated June 1, 2007, including adoption of an order authorizing the issuance of such bonds. Discuss high school gym renovations.
