Teacher contracts up in the air

March 9, 2011

Faced with an uncertain financial future, Big Spring Independent School District officials are hitting the brakes temporarily on teacher contract renewals.

BSISD and other Texas school districts typically renew teacher contracts in March, but school trustees will discuss putting that action off for a month when they meet at 5:15 p.m. Thursday in the high school board room.

With the future of state aid to school districts so uncertain while state legislators struggle to adjust to a multi-billion-dollar shortfall, many districts, including nearby Midland ISD, have delayed teacher contract renewals for the time being until the budgetary picture coming out of Austin becomes clearer.
