Campus plans on agenda

October 13, 2011

BSISD meeting set for this afternoon

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 “academically unacceptable” rating from the Texas Education Agency will highlight tonight’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 “unacceptable” rating under TEA’s accountability system in August. Moss Elementary, which was rated “academically acceptable,” was the only campus to avoid the subpar designation.
In the past several weeks, school officials have announced district-wide steps to improve BSISD’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:
• Hold a public hearing on the district’s Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) rating.
• Consider a resolution for the taxation of in-transit goods.
• Consider personnel matters.
• Discuss field turf for the football field.
• Hear reports on the high school Bible class, delinquent tax collections and the district’s safety audit.

Line Item four

The fourth item on the agenda is the problem. The football turf should not even be an issue at a time of crisis like this! Spend the money on the direct educational need of all the students, and the rating will go up, simple math here people. Organized sports is a necessity so kids can learn to work together, win and lose, and stay physically active, but it should not the principal concern nor should the budget be built around it. BSISD has spent tax payer’s money with total disregard on sports programs, building field houses, practice fields, buses, and turfs while educational needs have taken a backseat. “No child left behind” has clearly turned into “no athlete left without a chance” at BSISD!
