Second Reading of Policy: CDA (Local) – Other revenues, investments

Trustees heard on second reading district policy that covers all aspects of the district’s investments. The policy is reviewed annually and no amendments were offered. The policy will come back to the board at a future meeting for a third and final reading.


2019 Budget Calendar

Trustees unanimously approved the calendar for creation and approval of the 2019 budget, which applies to the 2018-19 school year. The calendar calls for a public hearing in both May and June of 2018, with adoption of the budget at the June regular meeting.

Public Meeting for Improvement Required Schools

Trustees heard reports from district schools on Improvement Required status in the state’s accountability system. Woodview Elementary and Treasure Forest Elementary are in year 3 of IR; Spring Branch Elementary, Westwood Elementary and Spring Woods Middle School are in year 1 of IR, after meeting standards the year before. Internally called Catalyst schools, the IR schools receive priority with district resources. Trustees pledged support in helping principals and staffs at those schools as well. The State Accountability System is based on a school’s STAAR results and measures four areas through target numbers than must be met or exceeded.

T-2-4 Goal

Board President Karen Peck said that the district’s T-2-4 goal – written into board policy – technically expires this year. Adopted in 2012, the policy states that in five years (2017) SBISD will double the number of students who achieve post-secondary success. Trustees noted that the goal now is for EveryChild graduating from SBISD to achieve post-secondary success – a two- or four-year degree, a technical certificate or military training. Trustees will move through the normal policy process of multiple readings to amend the goal.
