COLDSPRING — The Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD Board of Trustees discussed the future of the district’s campuses, looking toward using buildings to provide space for a growing student population.
At the regular meeting on Dec. 18, the board heard a report from a facilities assessment committee, which will explore using the Jones complex as a campus for students in grades 3-6, creating intermediate school.
Superintendent Dr. Bryan Taulton said the move was only a recommendation, as the board will need to approve the change, and bonds will need to be set for an election. If approved, once the renovation is completed then the current intermediate school will become the elementary school.
In other business, the board:
•approved Cindy Elliott, executive assistant and secretary to the board, was named as an alternate approver on the TEA system for accountability;
•accepted audit for the 2022-23 fiscal year from Weaver and Tidwell, which came in with an unmodified opinion;
•approved two resignations; and
•discussed the current school year and the transition to the 4-day week. Taulton said the move has been successful, and the district has seen improvement in student and employee attendance.
