At a briefing before the Austin ISD board of trustees meeting Feb. 24, Superintendent Meria Carstarphen tells local media that she supports three-year contracts for professional employees.
AISD Superintendent Meria Carstarphen sits at the dais Feb. 24 with board President Vincent Torres, who voted against the change, and Gina Hinojosa, who made the motion to reinstate three-year contracts.
For many years, AISD offered three-year contracts to its teachers and staff, Superintendent Meria Carstarphen said. Then in June 2011, Education Austin along with the Austin Association of Public School Administrators, or AAPSA, agreed to transition to one-year contracts for professional employees, including teachers and administrators. Most other area school districts offer one-year contracts, Carstarphen said.
The change will not affect classified employees, Carstarphen said.

A loose slate has emerged among the challengers, with Mathias, Teich, Jackson, and Hinojosa all powered by frustration at the board's unwillingness to tackle Carstarphen.
Even some board members have publicly grumbled that Carstarphen and her cabinet are unresponsive to requests and often withhold information.
Guzmán argues that the process is working correctly, and specifically that Car­star­phen is doing her job by bringing administration recommendations to the board. "If she didn't," he said, "I would say she was not doing her job.
But harsher critics see Brister's silence as passive submission to whatever Superintendent Meria Carstarphen asks for.
In 2011, Sooch Foundation Executive Director Mary Ellen Pietruszynski co-authored a letter to the Statesman defending Carstar­phen against "misdirected and dangerously shortsighted" criticisms of her style of leadership and imploring the community to "let Meria Carstarphen lead AISD as she sees fit.
Civil rights attorney Gina Hinojosa is taking the opposite stance, arguing that the board must represent the core beliefs of the community and either redirect the administration or just say no. While she hears and understands the criticisms of Carstarphen, she said, "The criticisms are misplaced, because ultimately those controversial decisions are being approved by the board, so that's where the buck stops."

Meria Carstarphen, Pauline Dow and Nicole Conley, the three female members of the Superintendent's senior cabinet.
Carstarphen and Conley are the first female CEO and CFO in AISD's history.
When Meria Carstarphen became superintendent of the Austin Independent School District, she became the first female Superintendent in the district's history.
Carstarphen and Conley both identify as African American, while Dow is Hispanic.
As African American women, Conley and Superintendent Carstarphen are a rarity when it comes to leadership in education, an area where men have historically held superintendent positions and women held the majority teaching positions.
Carstarphen says she's had mixed reactions from people when they see she's female and a minority.
"Sometimes it's isolating, people can be embracing and other times they're still trying to figure out what to do with it all," she said at the district's Martin Luther King Jr. celebration last week. Carstarphen often references her childhood in Selma, Alabama, which she says had a large influence on her growing up.
