The Hamilton County Board of Education will meet Thursday to discuss a new superintendent contract and the 2007 operating budget.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the central office at 6703 Bonny Oaks Drive.
Dr. Jim Scales, deputy superintendent of Dallas Independent Schools, was offered $194,000 to replace outgoing superintendent Jesse Register, who retires June 30.
The proposed operating budget for 2007 is $270.7 million. Schools officials said there are no cuts in the budget but there are no additions, either.
