BSISD superintendent vows district will shed unacceptable tag

August 12, 2011

No one likes being labeled “unacceptable,” and that applies to school districts as well as individuals.

Big Spring Independent School District has been saddled with an “academically unacceptable” rating ever since the Texas Education Agency school accountability ratings were released July 29. Thursday, school officials briefed trustees on how they intend to shed that label.

Still no takers for District 3 on BSISD board

August 12, 2011

The search for a new school trustee continues at Big Spring Independent School District.

Officials have been unsuccessful in their efforts to find a replacement for District 3 trustee Alan Partee, who declined to seek re-election in May.

District 3 covers an area which includes the Coronado Hills and Indian Hills subdivisions, as well as homes in the general vicinity of the VA Medical Center.
