SSISD Board covered a number of as-school-starts issues during their session August 8th in the Administration Building Boardroom.
Budget was a primary subject for the board. The budget calls for total estimated revenues of $45,222210 and estimated expenditures of $45,157,871 providing a net fund balance increase of $64,339. Projected fund balance is $19,405,959. Food service will continue to utilize the Region 8 Coop. Classroom materials and supplies will be purchased through Quill and Latson’s with pricing and discounts the same as the previous year.
Teacher appraisals will follow a different directive this school year. All school principals have been trained in the new system and assistant principals and academic specialists, along with the Director of Head Start will be receiving the training as well.
Rusty Hardin, Director of Human Resources and Communications for the district, reported that 57 new teachers will begin service in SSISD this year. He also pointed to the use of Blackboard Connect as a means of communicating with students, staff, parents, board members, and others.
Student and employee handbooks were also adopted.
