Trustees with the Big Spring Independent School District approved plans targeted to improve academic performance at the district and school level Thursday night.
“We didn’t get in this position overnight,” said BSISD Interim Superintendent Chris Wigington. “This is going to take a while for us to get back to where we need to be. I know everyone wants results now, and we’re trying to get to that point, but it is going to take time.
“Everybody is looking for that magic bullet to fix things and what we have here is a systemic problem,” Wigington continued. “We want to make a systemic change. When teachers come into the district, and for the teachers who are here, they understand that these things are what we do to help our students. We don’t want that magic bullet. We want a systemic change. We want a process that we use to help our students, to help our teachers.”
