GROVETON — The Board of Trustees for Groveton ISD again approved an improvement plan for the elementary school.
The need for the approval was because the submission form had changed; the state requires a three-year plan be in place.
One part of the plan includes using test scores to drive instruction. Also, items were adjusted because of the affect of COVID-19.
In a separate matter, the council denied a request for appeal from a resident of the district over a decision made regarding a student.
No details about the incident, including the student’s name, were revealed because of privacy laws.
The appeal was rejected because it was not filed in a timely manner, according to Board President Mark Folds.
The decision was first appealed to the High School principal, who upheld the decision; then to Superintendent Don Hamilton, who also denied it.
In other business, the board:
- approved a missed school days waiver, as the district missed more days than were allowed for on the previous calendar; and
- approved the Dec. 17 board meeting to be the date for the superintendent’s evaluation.
