Friday School Board Special Meeting Had Light Agenda


During a Friday special meeting of the Sulphur Springs ISD school board, Superintendent Michael Lamb presented a preliminary report on testing scores for the district. The board passed a resolution stating compliance with Senate Bill 149 and approved a bid to purchase a maintenance vehicle from Sulphur Springs Dodge. The resolution passed, Resolution 3-15, states the district’s compliance with Senate Bill 149, which went in effect immediately after being signed by Governor Greg Abbott. The bill allows seniors to graduate if they pass three of five end of course exams.  High School Principal Josh Williams told KSST the new law would allow five more seniors to graduate this year.

Also during the meeting, Board President John Prickette presented Don Sapaugh a plaque in recognition of his service as board president during the 2014-2015 school year.
