This week marks the end of the summer hours for EISD. We will go back to a five day week starting this week. District offices and campuses will now be open from 8:00 to 4:00 Monday through Friday.
The Monitor newspaper may have gotten the facts right in the story, but they had the accountability rating for the district in the chart next to the story completely wrong in the edition about area districts’ accountability ratings. The chart area stated that EISD was Academically Acceptable as a district. This is not correct. As we discussed last week, the district earned a rating of Recognized for the 08-09 school year.
I noted that the required Notice for Public Hearing on our tax rate and budget for the 09-10 school year was published in the weekend edition of the Monitor. This notice must be published no more than 30 days before the hearing and no less than 10 days before the hearing. The hearing is scheduled for August 18, 2009. It will take place prior to our regular board meeting. The hearing will start at 6:30 PM in the High School Library.
