Dallas ISD Board Talks Class Sizes

October 2108:30 AM

For anyone who is a regular at Dallas ISD school board meetings, Thursday night’s meeting was probably a surprise — no hot topics, no full gallery of speakers, and no late night. The meeting clocked in somewhere around an hour. A handful of public speakers brought up a few issues like questions about the district’s accommodations for autistic students and the state of the Dallas Environmental Science Academy; superintendent Michael Hinojosa and all nine trustees gave updates; next came the 15-item consent agenda; and then it was off to the races. view article  arw

Throughout October, a Clear Creek ISD committee has been examining the potential benefits of students starting school later in the day, and residents will soon be able to share their thoughts and concerns. The CCISD School Start Time Committee has come up with two potential models for school start times. The first would keep start times where they are, with elementary students starting at 7:55 a.m., intermediate students starting at 8:40 a.m. and high school students starting at 7:10 a.m. The second would move start times back so elementary students would start at 8:15 a.m., intermediate students would start at 9 a.m. and high school students would start at 7:30 a.m. view article  arw

Texas voters could stabilize funding for state parks with Proposition 5

October 2108:30 AM

Texas Parks and Wildlife officials, along with outdoor enthusiasts, are looking to lock in funding for the state’s parks during November’s constitutional amendment elections. Should it pass, Proposition 5 will change the Texas Constitution so that money generated from the existing sales tax on sporting goods can be given only to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas Historical Commission. Texas' parks were initially funded by a penny tax on cigarettes, but the Texas Legislature passed a law in 1993 allowing all of the sporting goods sales tax revenues to be used for the upkeep and expansion of parks and historical sites. view article  arw

Non-profits bring “Pink Pantry” to Midland ISD high schools

October 2108:25 AM

If you're a woman, having a menstrual cycle is something natural and expected. But starting one is a different story. Unfortunately there's no alarm clock or warning and in most cases, starting your period happens in the most un-ideal setting. "Every women knows or remembers when all of that happened and had that horror story and asked somebody to borrow something. And as an educator, I used to keep hygiene products in my classroom for girls. That was something they didn't have to go without or feel embarrassed about," said Andra Jones with the Junior League of Midland. view article  arw
