GRANBURY ISD SCHOOL BOARD MODIFIES GRADUATION POLICY, HEARS REPORT ON STATE TEST SCORES
May 26, 2010
The Granbury ISD Board of Trustees met for a special meeting on May 24, 2010 to consider changes to the district’s graduation policy and to hear a report on preliminary state test scores.
Trustees unanimously approved a modification to district policy regarding student participation in graduation ceremonies.The change will allow the superintendent to determine if a student would not meet all state and local requirements due to an “administrative error.”If the determination is made, the student could participate in graduation.
Superintendent Ron Mayfield provided a summary of preliminary state test scores to the board.Based on initial estimates, Granbury ISD will likely receive a Recognized state accountability rating from the Texas Education Agency.Projected ratings for campuses are:
Exemplary:Acton Elementary School, Crossland Ninth Grade Center, Oak Wood School
Recognized:Acton Middle School, Baccus Elementary School, Granbury High School, Granbury Middle School, Mambrino School
Academically Acceptable:Brawner Intermediate School (and paired campus Roberson Elementary School, which shares the same attendance zone)
AEA –Academically Acceptable:STARS Academy
Scores from fifth and eighth grade re-tests are still pending, and a report on student completion rate is expected in mid-June.Official accountability ratings will be issued by TEA on July 30.
The next regular school board meeting will be held on Monday, June 7, 2010.Board meetings are held in the GISD Board Room located next to the Administration Building at 600 W. Pearl Street.
