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 â€śon or beforeâ€ť 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 â€śteacher coaches,â€ť during their monthly meeting Thursday evening.
This is the latest of several steps the district is taking to remove the stigma of â€śacademically unacceptableâ€ť state accountability ratings levied by the Texas Education Agency three years ago.
