Adjunct staff for KCISD are approved staff that are not on a full or permanent status, and are used as instructors and supervisors for inter-curricular and extension educational activities, such as 4-H. Agents from the Karnes County AgriLife Extension Service are chosen to act as adjunct staff for KCISD.
“Our county Extension agents technically serve as adjunct instructors for KCISD, so that when our 4-H students go to competition, they can be counted as “present” for an inter-curricular activity under the supervision of an instructor from KCISD,” said District Superintendent Jeanette Winn.
According to Winn, the State Board of Education allows public school students to be considered “in attendance” when participating in off-campus activities with an adjunct staff member of the school district.
The board approved J.D. Folbre and Meagen Mohr as the adjunct staff that met the necessary criteria and qualifications of the State. Folbre has already been serving as an adjunct instructor for the district, but Meagen Mohr is new.
Also during the meeting, the hiring of new teaching staff was approved by the board. Laura Triffet is certified to teach math and will be teaching at the Karnes City High School, and Tanya Climer was brought on as a second grade teacher at Roger E. Sides Elementary.
