The Dublin ISD school board held a special session last Thursday morning at 7am, where the board canvassed the election and hired six new employees. The board also temporarily suspended a portion of the Board Policy DC (Local) Employment Practices. School superintendent secretary Glenna Ricks said contract teachers are usually hired by the board upon Dr. Schneider’s recommendation, but they suspended that portion of local policy DC, giving the superintendent the ability to hire teachers through the summer. The six new hires are Jessica Criswell, Jessica Grisham, Hallie McFarlin, Jamie Clark, Wendy Flynn and Pamela Kasinger. The specific positions each new teacher will fill is still being determined.
