Public Hearing, Board Meeting, & This Week

The varsity football team lost a hard fought game to Scurry on Friday. The Bulldogs are now 2-2 on the year with the homecoming game against Mildred this Friday. This will be the last pre-district football game.

The volleyball teams improved to 3-0 in district with wins over Malakoff last Friday. The varsity team won 3-1 and the JV team won 2-1. The Lady Bulldogs travel to West Rusk on Tuesday and are back at home Friday to take on Frankston.

At this time, I do not have any official results for cross country.

Tonight, the Eustace School Board will hold a public hearing starting at 6:45 on the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST). The FIRST report grades the district on 10 financial indicators. A district can either pass or fail. In the past, the rating scale was different and there were more rating labels. I am pleased to report that EISD had a perfect score of 30 in 2014-2015. The 2014-2015 score is based on data from the 2013-2014 school year. Everyone is invited to come out for the public hearing tonight.

At 7:00 PM, the Eustace School Board will hold its regular September meeting. During the meeting, the Board will hear the following reports:

  • RevTrak
  • Comparison of Meals Served
  • Capital One Rebate
  • Performance Based Monitoring Analysis System Report
  • Texas Schools Property
  • Texas Municipal Report
  • STAAR 3-8 Math Results
  • 14-15 Campus Improvement Plans Evaluations
  • Enrollment

The Board will consider action on the following items:

  • Minutes from previous meetings.
  • Financial Reports
  • 2015-2016 Campus Improvement Plans
  • TASB Delegate
  • Sale of Property
  • Designs for Wall of Honor
  • Purchase of Vehicle for Police Department
  • Board of Directors for Van Zandt County Appraisal District
  • The Board will enter closed session to discuss personnel and student transfers. Any action taken by the Board on a closed session item will be made in open session.

Everyone is invited to come out for the regular board meeting.
