Big Spring Independent School District officials apparently will not accept an unacceptable rating for their schools.
Student improvement plans for all campuses which received an â€śacademically unacceptableâ€ť rating from the Texas Education Agency will highlight tonightâ€™s meeting of the BSISD Board of Trustees, which begins at 5:15 p.m. in the high school board room.
The school district and all but one campus was tagged with an â€śunacceptableâ€ť rating under TEAâ€™s accountability system in August. Moss Elementary, which was rated â€śacademically acceptable,â€ť was the only campus to avoid the subpar designation.
In the past several weeks, school officials have announced district-wide steps to improve BSISDâ€™s academic standing, but tonight will zero in on improvement plans at the campus level. Proposals for the high school, junior high, Goliad Intermediate and Bauer, Washington, Marcy and Kentwood elementaries will be considered.
In other business, trustees will:
â€˘ Hold a public hearing on the districtâ€™s Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) rating.
â€˘ Consider a resolution for the taxation of in-transit goods.
â€˘ Consider personnel matters.
â€˘ Discuss field turf for the football field.
â€˘ Hear reports on the high school Bible class, delinquent tax collections and the districtâ€™s safety audit.
