GOLIAD – Despite the settlement of the lawsuit between Goliad County Sheriff Kirby and Goliad ISD school board member Robert De La Garza, Goliad ISD Superintendent Emilio Vargas III said Friday he doesn’t anticipate renegotiating the expired interlocal agreement with the county providing for a school resource officer anytime soon.

“No, not at this time,” Vargas said. “I would like time to pass and things to settle down. I know the lawsuit is steeled, but I’m just concerned with some of the things going on here in the community. There seems to be so much division. I want to let some of those things settle down.”

Vargas said the employment discrimination lawsuit filed by De La Garza against Brumby was a main reason why Goliad ISD did not accept the county’s latest contract proposal. The lawsuit was settled out of court last week.

On the agenda for Monday’s Goliad ISD school board meeting was discussion of creating a safety/truancy officer position.

“We’ll go that route at least the remainder of this semester,” Vargas said. “The board and I will review the effectiveness of that position and make a determination at that time.”
