RAYMONDVILLE — The search is back on for a superintendent.
The school board has rescinded its appointment of finalist Raul Nuques after the parties failed to reach a contract agreement, board President Jessica Ramirez-Cantu said yesterday.
The board had planned to hire Nuques last Tuesday.
“The reason for the board’s decision is due to not agreeing on contractual terms that the board felt would benefit the students, staff and taxpayers of Raymondville ISD,” Ramirez-Cantu said in a statement.
“Unable to reach this common ground, we as the board of trustees felt in the best interest of RISD to end negotiations and re-evaluate the process of selecting the next superintendent of schools,” she said.
The district paid the Texas Association of School Boards about $8,000 to conduct a search which led the board to name Nuques its finalist for the job last month.
TASB will not charge the district to conduct its second search, said Butch Felkner, the agency’s director of executive search services.
Felkner said the search will include a new round of job applications.
