CROSBY – Superintendent Scott Davis announced he was going to retire from education at a special called meeting last week.
At a special called meeting October 14, that began at 6:00 p.m. it has been learned that Davis — who was earning just under $1/4 M per year, like Randal O’Brien of Goose Creek CISD, slightly more than King Roy Davis of Sheldon at $223.382 and over $140,000 less than Barbers Hill ISD’s Greg Poole — was said to have asked for a salary increase. Board members at that time tabled that request for later review.
In turn, Dr. Davis announced his retirement.
He responded briefly to Star-Courier questions about this decision with: “I will be retiring from education as of June 30, 2021. There were no arguments over anything to do with audits or Dr. Moore. I am pleased that we have been able to easily work together during my time here. I have always wanted Crosby to have ever-growing success. We had to take a detour over these last few years, but because of the work and sacrifice of so many wonderful people, my sincerest hope is that Crosby can jump all the way back on track as a leader in public education in our area! I have that confidence and will always be proud of Crosby ISD for its grit, determination, and excellence.”
