Superintendent Christy Paulsgrove told the board of trustees at its meeting May 14 that there are five candidates to replace her.
Goliad ISD received 26 applications and conducted interviews with two of the five finalists on May 16 and the other three on May 22. Goliad ISD would not release the names of the finalists to the Advance-Guard.
Paulsgrove said last week that the Texas Education Agency’s preliminary designation of Goliad ISD as a Chapter 41 district for the 2013-14 school year under the state’s “Robin Hood” plan was not a surprise. The school district has been designated a “wealthy” school district the last six years.
The TEA will notify districts of their final status in July. District 41 school districts or “wealthy” school districts are subject to funds being recaptured by the state.
