Forty-one down, nine to go.
Trustees with the Big Spring Independent School District were pleased to learn that officials plan to apply for only nine class-size waivers from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) this year.
â€śAs the result of (personnel) moves we made earlier this year â€” some of our staff members and some from new hires â€” we are requesting only nine class-size waivers as compared to 50 waivers that we applied for last year.â€ť said Chris Wigington, BSISD interim superintendent. â€śWithout the hires and the moves that we made, we would be requesting 29 waivers."
