A former superintendent at Houston will return to the classroom to fill a critical needs science teacher slot at the high school.
Clinton Waters was hired to fill a vacancy during Monday’s meeting of the Houston school board.
The board also hired Ryan Munson, who is currently a paraprofessional, as an elementary focus room supervisor beginning in January. Munson will replace Dustin Kirkman, who resigned as Houston High School boys’ basketball coach last month and is leaving the district at the semester.
Daniel Narancich will take Munson’s current slot.
