Summer has begun, students are gone, and board meetings continue with important updates, reports and an overview of the 2019 bond projects schedule. The Board also adopted the 2019-20 budget, which included a 4.5% of midpoint salary increase for all employees.
The May board meetings consisted of committee reports and updates. One particular report I'm happy to announce is the Eanes Education Foundation's 2019-20 grant - EEF announced they will gift the District $2.55 million to fund 51 teachers next year! What an amazing accomplishment that is because of the support of so many in the community. Thank you!
I am so excited to announce a new aspect of an inspiring and important initiative. As many of you know, as a school district, we have had a commitment to the social-emotional wellness of our community for several years. This year, however, we are delving into the topic more deeply throughout the school year.
Superintendent Message: When I was a little boy, I always wanted to fly like Superman, to the point my poor mom was worried I would jump off my garage roof to gain some early altitude. To start this school year, we have weaved an aspect of that dream into this year’s message...
Superintendent Message: It is important for parents to understand the school district’s current approach to personal devices in the classroom and how we intend to chart our path forward.
