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.
