The Hendricks School Board approved the hiring of Principal Paul Chick as superintendent/principal. Current Superintendent Bruce Houck’s contract is done as of June 30. The action was approved by a unanimous vote at last week’s regular monthly meeting. The meeting continued uninterrupted despite a power outage, so the meeting was lit by two emergency lights throughout a significant portion of the evening. Chick also agreed to step in immediately as “Houck’s designee.” The move will allow Chick to attend meetings and sign documents in the absence of the superintendent, until his contract officially kicks in on July 1, allowing the district to be covered as Houck takes unused vacation time in June.
