Mrs. Cathy Ashby says the district did well as a whole last year but still have some areas of concern.
She says, math and science are two subjects students have issues with in the district. A grant was given to the district and will be utilized for those two subjects.
Meanwhile, a proposed goal was presented in front of the board this evening on renovating Woodson Center for Excellence.
Joe Humphrey, Construction Coordinator for AISD, says the renovations could cost about a total $2.4 million. Woodson Center has received a new science lab and is in need of ceilings, lighting, and heating/cooling.
If the board approves the plan, renovations could start this summer.
This afternoon, Superintendent Dr. David Polnick commented on the Critical Needs Task Force's findings. "Their findings realy look to the future for AISD on our facilities on our securities, our technology needs, and they are hitting the high points," said Polnick.
He also says he is happy with what the Task Force has come up with. "Although, they haven't made their recommendations yet, I feel like they are moving ahead with some very positive things for our school and within our community."
