Busy HISD board meeting today
HISD had an action-packed board meeting today, with the most surprising development being the reinstating of the Key Middle School principal who had been demoted after an HISD investigation determined TAKS cheating took place at the school.
As expected, the board approved next year's budget which includes a pay raise for teachers and more money for the district's Pre-K program, which had a waiting list last year. Next year, all eligible Pre-K children will be able to attend the district's program.
Also, the board approved Dr. Saavedra's proposed tougher code of conduct for students, cracking down on students who make "hit lists" and organize gang activities.
