SISD trustees target subject improvements
STOCKDALE -- No members of the public attended a public hearing Feb. 10 to discuss the 2012-13 Texas Academic Performance Report, but the report did give insight to educators of the Stockdale Independent School District.
The district followed the state trend of low writing scores, Stockdale ISD Superintendent Paul Darilek said after the meeting, but improvement was noticed in the junior high math scores.
After reviewing the scores, the trustees targeted high school writing, junior high math and U.S. history, and writing in the lower grades, Darilek said.
The district’s graduation percentage was good, according to Darilek, with the post-graduate studies a success, and a number of students continuing their education at two- and four-year colleges.
“We met standard,” Darilek said, adding that while this was a great report, the district wants to improve the scores.
In other business, the trustees approved an order for elections, set for Saturday, May 10, in conjunction with the Stockdale city elections. Trustee terms expiring include District 1, currently held by Teri Wolff; and District 6, currently held by Mauro Monita.
The trustees also met in executive session. After reconvening into regular session, they approved extensions to contracts for high school Principal Sandra Lynn, junior high Principal Sharon Dunn, elementary Principal Lee Dockery, Athletic Director Josh West, Programs and Testing Coordinator Roxanne Moczygemba, Technology Director Billy Polasek, and Business Manager Becky Stewart.
Darilek reported that work on the track complex has been stagnant for the last two to three weeks, due to the cold, damp weather.
The next regular Stockdale ISD board of trustees meeting will be held Monday, March 3, due to the school district’s scheduled spring break.
