Board reviews accountability summaries

The Wills Point ISD Board of Trustees held their monthly meeting on Monday night, reviewing the recently released accountability ratings for districts and campuses by the Texas Education Agency.

Board business opened with the board of trustees recognizing the dedication and work done by the WPHS student council.

WPHS Principal Jeff Russell noted just a small portion of the group’s service efforts, including donating time to help in cleanup efforts following the April 29 tornadoes that hit the Canton and Fruitvale areas, delivering cupcakes to the Wills Point Police Department and Wills Point Volunteer Fire Department, and making a trip to Rains High School deliver a sympathy card signed by the student body following the passing of a freshman student Sept. 4.

The board of trust commended the student council’s efforts, presenting certificates to all members that attended the meeting.

Russell also recognized two members of the WPHS staff for their hard work and efforts, including Narcilee Barnes and Tiera Homer.

Business shifted to the administrative reports portion of the agenda with Assistant Superintendent Barbie McMath making a presentation on accountability ratings for campuses and districts released by the TEA Aug. 15.

McMath explained that Wills Point had earned the highest possible designation from the TEA across the board, with the Wills Point ISD, Wills Point High School, Wills Point Middle School, Wills Point Junior High, Earnest O. Woods Intermediate School and the Wills Point Primary School all receiving “met standard” for the 2017 school year.
