Misperceptions About Staffing

There are many questions circulating about school district staffing numbers. Attached is an article describing, with some additional detail, some of the things that non-teaching staff are doing in school districts.

BISD is soliciting input from high school students, high school parents and high school teachers on the current start and end times for high school. Please take a minute to complete this short survey. (The survey closes at 7 a.m. on Monday, March 7.)



City Manager form Haltom City Meets with North Oaks Middle Students

Tom Muir, city manager for Haltom City, visited with students from North Oaks Middle School concerning possible solutions to the railroad crossing next to the campus.  Students learned of future plans for the widening of McLean. Unfortunately at the present time, the plans do not include any bridges/walkways that will cross over or under the crossing. Muir said he will visit with the engineers and look at the cost and possibility of doing something. He believes money will ultimately be the issue that prevents it from becoming a reality. The students understood the biggest issue was how to pay for the project.  

Mr. Muir was very impressed with the students' research and insight. He also talked about the need for education of our students on safety when it comes to railroad crossings.
