LA MARQUE — The La Marque school board Thursday brought up the possibility of Superintendent Ecomet Burley’s termination.
Trustee Edna Courville asked the topic of his contract be added as an agenda item to a future board meeting.
Trustees already scheduled special meetings next Tuesday and Thursday to review their options for a financial solvency plan that would resolve a 2012-13 budget deficit of $2.9 million.
Thursday is the deadline for the district to submit a plan to the Texas Education Agency, but trustees deferred a discussion on the budget.
Burley said he had not heard back from the agency about whether his Jan. 9 request for a second deadline extension had been granted.
Trustees did approve an adjustment for the 2012-13 budget that will refund the agency $691,000 it no longer qualifies for because of decreased enrollment.
The budget for this school year was passed assuming the district would enroll more students than it actually did and that La Marque voters would approve an increase in the property tax rate.
