GROVETON — After one semester in charge of the Groveton school district, Jim Dillard was given a good review by the Groveton School Board.
At the board’s regular meeting on Dec. 16, 2021, the board went over in closed session the work done since Dillard took over the position on Sept. 1, 2021.
Dillard said he received a good evaluation.
“This last semester has been challenging, but that’s part of the job,” he said. “I have a lot of important decisions to make, but the good news is I have good people that I work with, and people who sat in this chair before me did such a great job, I am in a good position.”
In other business, the board:
• discussed the district’’s FIRST rating, which was a perfect 100 and the district is in compliance;
• discussed student enrollment and absences due to COVID. The district enrollment is up, and growing each month;
• discussed status of ESSER grant funds;
• discussed policy updates from the Texas Association of School Boards.
