Immigration, abortion and economy expected to take center stage when Abbott, O’Rourke debate Friday

September 3005:00 AM
 

Immigration, abortion, the economy and guns are expected to be major topics of conversation Friday night as Republican Gov. Greg Abbott faces off against his Democratic challenger, Beto O’Rourke, in their only planned debate ahead of the Nov. 8 election. Abbott, who is seeking a third term in office, is leading in the polls by single-digit margins and will look to push his priority issue of border security to the forefront of the debate, along with the country’s struggling economy under the watch of Democratic President Joe Biden. O’Rourke, who came within 3 percentage points of unseating Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018, is expected to attack Abbott’s resistance to gun restrictions after the Uvalde school shooting in May, his record on the state’s electricity grid that led to widespread power outages during last year’s deadly winter freeze and his support of the Legislature’s move to ban nearly all abortions in the state view article  arw

Going to school after having a baby is tough, and a potential complication to any new mother’s day is finding the time, place, and quiet for expressing breastmilk for their child.

Donna ISD moves toward becoming district of innovation

September 3008:41 AM
 

The Donna Independent School District took another step earlier this month toward becoming a district of innovation, a status that would give it flexibility regarding local controls more in line with an open-enrollment charter school. On Sept. 13, the district’s board of trustees held a public hearing on the proposal, a step that allows it to move forward with committee meetings over the next three months. The board could vote to approve the plan as soon as February. Donna ISD’s district of innovation plan proposes two areas where the district wants some more flexibility: start date and the 90% attendance rule. Approving the plan would give the district the option to begin the school year before the fourth week in August, Superintendent Angela Dominguez told trustees earlier this month. view article  arw

Fort Worth ISD to add GPS trackers to busses after multiple kids dropped off in wrong neighborhoods

September 3008:40 AM
 

FORT WORTH, Texas - Fort Worth ISD has agreed to spend about $80,000 to provide GPS trackers on school buses.  However, it comes as a cold comfort to a group of parents who say their kids have been repeatedly dropped off in the wrong neighborhoods.  In a few days, FWISD will enter into an agreement with T-Mobile to activate GPS trackers on district buses and vehicles. It comes a week and a half after seven children were left at a stop a half-mile away from where they were supposed to be dropped off.  You can hear the frustration Gloria Williams’ voice, a mom of two Daggett Elementary School students dropped off at the wrong bus stop after school on Sept 16. She was at home while her 12-year-old daughter, Cielo Vaca, walked around the corner to pick up her 8 and 9-year-old sisters. view article  arw

State agencies push for better worker pay as critical staffing crunch hits Texas government

September 3008:35 AM
 

The stories from the great state workforce crunch have been pouring in for months.  The single parent who qualifies for the same state welfare benefits she’s hired to administer. Texas juvenile officers who can find safer jobs at the local Buc-ee’s for better pay. The state agency managers who can easily double their salaries in the private sector.  They are all the result, according to advocates and agency officials, of a critically understaffed workforce in many of Texas’ 112 state agencies, a situation made worse by the fact that there’s been no statewide pay raise in nearly a decade.  Factor in a worldwide pandemic and officials with Texas agencies say they are being hammered by a historic staffing crisis, particularly when it comes to those in the trenches serving the state’s most vulnerable populations or the workforce responsible for housing people. view article  arw

Wolf promoted as ISD police’s first sergeant

September 3008:30 AM
 

Jason Wolf has spent three decades as a public servant – eight years in the U.S. Marine Corps, 18 as a member of the Austin Police Department and for the past three years an original officer in the Liberty Hill Independent School District Police Department. However, until Thursday evening at Liberty Hill ISD headquarters, there was one honor that had never been bestowed on him. Being called “Sergeant.” Yet there he was standing in the boardroom with his right hand raised while taking an oath adjacent from Liberty Hill ISD Police Chief Sharif Mazayek before wife Kate replaced her husband's old badge with a shiny, brand-new one that carries his new rank emblazoned across the top. “It's a big deal for me,” said Wolf. “This is the first time our department has had a sergeant, so it's an honor for me to be able to do this.” Indeed, the time had definitely arrived for the school district police force to have in place a first-line supervisor to lead its officers, said Mezayek. view article  arw

Dallas Parents Flocking to Schools That Pull Students From Both Rich and Poor Parts of Town

September 3008:30 AM
 

School districts see success with ‘Transformation Schools’ that offer a socioeconomically mixed student body  When Lauren McKinnon heard a new public elementary school was opening close to her home in Dallas, it was good news; but when she learned the school would offer an all-girls education format with a focus on STEM, she was excited, knowing inequities often exist for girls – like her daughters – in math and science.  But something else stood out about the school that attracted McKinnon: its potential for a student body that looked more like Dallas as a whole.  The school, Solar Prep for Girls, opened in 2016 as a “Transformation School”, one of several efforts underway to reverse decades of white flight from the school system. The school district is currently 71 percent Hispanic, 21 percent Black and 5 percent white, and 86 percent of its students are eligible for federally subsidized lunches. view article  arw
