Levelland ISD School Board had their meeting last night at 6pm in the admin Building to go over some restructuring and end of year business. Firstly came the emotional departure of Board President Tania Moody. She gave a heartfelt speech to the board, saying she felt confident tha the school was in good hands. Jeff Northern, Superintendent, presented her an award as a token of the boards appreciation for her 12 years of dedicated service. With her departure, the board needed a new candidate for President, and very quickly came up with Carrie Ellis. DeEtte Edens was voted to be the Vice President, with newly appointed Treva Potter as the Secretary. The board also had two new members join its ranks, taking the oath of office last night: Joyce Johnson and Treva Potter.
As for business to attend to, Joyce Johnson volunteered to be the district’s delegate to the TASB fall convention, and Parent/Family engagement surveys as well as staff satisfaction surveys were reviewed. A New Initiative was showing progress as well. Multi-Tiered Sytems of Support, or MTSS is a support plan that would help identify where a student is struggling in the classroom, anmd allow our teachers and staffers to intervene. The program could be in draft form for a year or more.
Finally Graduation was discussed, as there were some restrictions this year. Due to SPC’s regulations, students will be given 10 tickets to graduation this year in order to keep the crowd limited, but the event will be live streamed on multiple platforms to increase accessibility. Graduation will take place Thursday, May 27th at SPC.
