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.
