TRS Standard Definition of School Year May Affect Retirement Planning
The Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) has adopted a new standard definition of the term "school year" that takes effect in 2012-13, but will continue to credit either contract year salaries (for members with a July 1 to June 30 or Aug. 1 to July 31 contract) or the new school year for 2012-13.

Van Ratsaphangthong, seventh- and eighth-grade Pre-AP math teacher at Watauga Middle School (WMS), was awarded a Horace Mann Scholarship to the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals'  (TASSP) Principal Academy. He will attend the conference for principals and aspiring principals this summer in San Antonio. The scholarship pays for the conference and all expenses. He was one of two Texas winners that Horace Mann selected. Ratsaphangthong is a graduate of BISD and has taught at WMS for six years.
