San Benito CISD Interim Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ismael Cantu received a three-month contract extension at Tuesday’s regular meeting.
Cantu also received a $50 raise, bringing his total pay per day to $550. The contract was approved by a 4-0 vote. Voting in favor of the extension were Board President Yliana Gonzalez, Vice-President Julian Huerta, Secretary June Aguilera and trustee Fatima Huerta. Board member Hector Leal abstained while fellow trustees Anna Cruz and Oscar Medrano were not present.
“Because there was a person that almost had a higher salary than me, they decided to move it up $50,” Cantu said of his salary.
