TRINITY — The Trinity ISD Board of Trustees honored the cross country runners and staff superlatives, and took steps toward helping its police force at its regular meeting on Nov. 28.
Superintendent John Kaufman said the board approved a measure allowing the district’s officers to take police cars home.
Kaufman said it will save time, including response time in case something happens at night, and will save money on transportation.
Additionally, it’s a good will gesture, since the department has done a good job for the district, he said.
The board, however, tabled a measure to purchase a door alarm system to seek additional bids and information. That measure was to be taken up at a special meeting on Dec. 5.
In other business, the board:
•discuss targeted improvement plans for all campuses, addressing what is being done to improve the scores. Kaufman said the district is analyzing the data and getting input from teachers, parents, and the community to help improve schools;
•discussed replacing the marquee sign at the high school, which has broken and is not replaceable. Kaufman said the board is waiting on prices to replace it, and possibly add another to be placed at the Old Red schoolhouse; and
•approved a deposit agreement with First National Bank of Trinity.
