Navarro ISD Board of Trustees continues to show its support to Superintendent Dee Carter after 12 years.

The board voted unanimously to award Carter a 3% pay raise for the new school year, a $800 per year increase in her auto allowance and a one- year contract extension following a two hour closed-door session during a regular meeting on Monday.

“She’s done a fantastic job for us. We couldn’t be happier to have her here in the leadership position she is in,” Navarro ISD Board of Trustees President Dr. Greg Gilcrease said. “She cares about our students. She cares about this district and we’re just glad she’s with us.”

Carter said she looks forward to continuing being a part of the panther community.

“I am very gratified that the board continues to seem to feel that my leadership is what they desire for the district at this time,” she said. “I’m very appreciative of that. This has been for me a very joyful place to work.”

Carter served as the superintendent for Seguin ISD for eight years before retiring in 2004. In 2006, Carter joined NISD as the interim superintendent before taking the reins as the leader in 2007.

Carter’s current pay rate under her 2018-2019 contract is $124,200 the district said.

Carter’s pay raise and contract extension was approved following a motion by board officer Rick Martin and a second by board member Hank Dietert.

The Board of Trustees also approved the purchase of chrome books, a revision to a Long Rage Technology Plan and the purchase of staff technology equipment during the meeting.
