Sulphur Springs School Superintendent Michael Lamb had a big headline in an otherwise very brief report to the school board Monday night on the latest state accountability results for the school district. Lamb said all campuses and the district met standards. He said he and administrators are crunching the numbers to learn more. He promised more information later.
In other business, the board voted to request the TEA to modify the district’s compressed tax rate for next school year by adding earned copper pennies from the state to it. The district earned the pennies from the state years ago when the district dropped its tax rate significantly to its current $1.04 per $100-valuation. The move should mean an extra $341,000 to the district’s budget according to Business Manager Sherry McGraw.
