Dr. Steven Saldivar and Big Spring Independent School District trustees have announced a amicable parting of the ways.
Saldivar, superintendent of the school district for the past five years, announced his impending resignation following a closed session with trustees at their Thursday meeting.
His resignation is somewhat open-ended â it will be effective âon or beforeâ June 30, 2014.
Big Spring Independent School District is bringing in outside help in an effort to boost student test scores.
BSISD trustees approved an $187,000 contract with Lead Your School, a private organization of âteacher coaches,â during their monthly meeting Thursday evening.
This is the latest of several steps the district is taking to remove the stigma of âacademically unacceptableâ state accountability ratings levied by the Texas Education Agency three years ago.
