Candidate dubbed a‘uniter’
District 5 Trustee Rose Cervin. And that is too much, she said.
Gonzales said discussion of salary would be speculation because contract negotiations have not begun.
Superintendent Jim Grunert was paid $117,000 per year.
He was promised $60,000 over the next four years to resign earlier this summer after a controversy erupted over the installation of $ I million in artificial turf at two CISD high schools.
Booster clubs were supposed to pay half the cost of the turf, but Grunert decided to lend the clubs the money after financing fell through.
His action angered some board members, and the clubs took out loans from banks.
Grunert agreed in July to leave his post by Dec. 31.
It is uncertain whether Fuller will be on board at that time because of her current job, where .she has worked since 1999.
Last week Gonzales visited Dayton and spoke with school staff and community members. Other trustees did what they could to contact Dayton ISD officials and chec k Fuller’s references, she said.
References consistently said Fuller was a good communicator and motivator, Gonzales said.
Gonzales praised Fuller for being a uniter — a trait board members said was important in a geographically separated and diverse.
“That was one of the biggest things we heard from people in her district," Gonzales said.
Fuller does not have experi ence miming a district tile size of CISD and has never managed a budget as large, Gonzales said.
CISD is spread across 590 square miles and five counties.
Fuller also led Cleveland ISD for two years. She has 32 years educational experience Dayton ISI) had an enroll ment of 5,100 students in 2002, compared to CISD’s 11,900 enrollment.
Dayton ISD has two high schools, one junior high, an education center and four elementary campuses.
The district’s 2000-01 budget was $28 million.
CISD’s budget is $72 million for the 2003-04 school year.
Fuller was hired for her potential, Gonzales said.
“She loves a challenge, and she looks at CISD as a challenge,” Gonzales said.
Gonzales also praised Fuller’s political ties.
Fuller has served as vice president for the Texas Mid-Size Schools Association. She also was appointed by her district’s state representative as a member of the Practitioner’s School Finance Reform Committee, which prepared financial recommendations for the legislative session.
She also was sponsor and volunteer with the Special Olympics and a member of the Dayton Chamber of Commerce.
It took the board three hours Wednesday to come to the decision, though Gonzales said Fuller has been on the top of the list for some time. The board had met with Fuller three times in closed session.
Cervin was the only dissenting vote. Trustee Dan Krueger was absent.
“ There were just too many positive things — when something is all positive, theres something wrong with that picture," Cervin said.
Cervin has attended two of the several superintendent search meetings the board has had since July.
Gonzales said Cervin was not as informed as the rest of the group because she was not a part of the tedious process of choosing Fuller as superintendent.
Cervin based her decision on one meeting, Gonzales said.
“That has left District 5 without a voice in this very crucial decision," Gonzales said.
Fuller soon will begin to host public meetings in the community.
Fuller could not be reached at her Dayton home Wednesday night.

Battle of the Bands a homecoming staple
I lomecoming dances cost money for gowns, tuxedo rentals, hair dressing and makeovers, students complained.
“The prom isn t even a big deal at this school,” said Nicole Fowler, senior class president.
I.ast year, the Bathe of the Band was a huge event with six student garage bands.
This year, three bands will play, but the event is expected to draw a crowd.
“Everyone goes, not just the rocker kids,” Fowler said.
Homecoming week at SVI IS mostly draws interest from students involved in student council, the homecoming court, and other organizations, said Janet McNeeley, student council sponsor.
