The pencils and school supplies are barely out on the shelves at Walmart, and I walk the aisles looking for the new pencil or next journal that I don’t really need. I am excited about school being around the corner and the smell of new crayons in the air. Corny, I know, but who can help themselves? Everyone starts with a clean slate and is eager to learn. view article arw

We obtained the separation agreement between the troubled Harlandale ISD and its superintendent who was forced out on Monday night. We put in an open records request for Rey Madrigal's separation agreement and received it Thursday afternoon.  It says Madrigal will be paid $58,477 for leaving the district and agreeing not to sue.  After an investigation by the Texas Education Agency, Education Commissioner Mike Morath determined superintendent Rey Madrigal had to go. He was accused of hiring and paying an engineering firm without approval from the school board.  At first the board suspended Madrigal and proposed firing him, but Madrigal requested a hearing to appeal that. Monday trustees agreed to let him resign and retire, allowing him to collect all the paid leave he had accrued. view article arw
