This Week

Last Friday, I reported that Governor Perry had asked Education Commissioner Michael Williams to defer implementation of the rule that provided that end of course tests count 15% of a student’s final grade in a class. Commissioner Williams has indeed provided instructions to districts that the 15% rule has been deferred until the 2013-2014 school year.

There is a called board meeting scheduled for tonight. The meeting will be held at 6:00 PM in the HS library. The main purpose of the meeting will be to take care of some time-sensitive items that cannot wait until the regular board meeting on December 18.

Agenda items include:

  • Annual Highly Qualified Report
  • Consider votes for Henderson County Appraisal District Board of Directors – Place 3
  • Superintendent Reports – Financial Reports for October, PaySchools Report, Update on State and Federal Grants, Tax Property Resale Report, and Summer Feeding Program Report
  • Consider Update 95 – Second Reading

All interested parties are encouraged to attend tonight’s called board meeting.
