The MHS A Cappella Choir trip to Colorado Springs, CO was approved by the Board.  The students will participate in a vocal workshop on May 17, 2012 through May 21, 2012.  The Board approved the MHS Big Green Band trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL.  The students will attend a music workshop on May 11, 2012 through May 15, 2012.

The Board approved a resolution concerning high stakes, standardized testing of Texas public school students.  This resolution is asking the Texas Legislature reexamine the public school accountability system in Texas, so students can learn and teachers can teach.  A part of the resolution states, "We do not oppose accountability in public schools and we point with pride to the performance of our students, but believe that the system of the past will not prepare our students to lead in the future and neither will the standardized tests that so dominate their instructional time and block our ability to make progress toward a world-class education system of student-centered schools and future-ready students."

The School Trustee Elections for District 6 and 7 was cancelled because Bo Rose and Kay Rankin-Swan were unopposed.  The Board approved the Instructional Material Allotment certification form.  By approving the form, the District will be able to purchase text books as well as other instructional material for 2012-2013.

Policy Update 93 affecting LOCAL policies DAB, DAC, DH, EFA, FDB, FFH and FFI were approved by the Board.  Policies FFH and FFI refer to discrimination, harassment, retaliation and bullying.  These policies will not go into effect until August 27, 2012.  This will give the District time to update their handbooks with the new policies.

Contract renewals for Assistant Principals:  Chad Smith (MHS), Jill Steen (WJHS/Tatom) and Patty Dominguez; Counselors:  Kim Thomas (MHS), Debbie Gambino (MHS), Kristi Bowman (WJHS), Blanca Smith (Sudderth) and Bonnie Benad (Tatom/Cullender); Diagnostician:  Glynda Hardcastle; Liaison Officer/AEP Director:  Tommy King and Technology Coordinator:  Nancy Upchurch were approved by the Board.  The resignation from Ashlea Navarrette (Tatom) was accepted by the Board.
