L-EISD board approves 2019-20 district calendar

L-EISD board approves 2019-20 district calendar

February 15th, 2019 by Jennifer Middleton in Texarkana News

Liberty-Eylau Independent School District's Board of Trustees approved the 2019-20 district calendar during their regular meeting Thursday.

Superintendent Ronnie Thompson said it was similar to that of other area districts.

"It has been through the process of being vetted through the district leadership team," he said. "First it went out to staff and they had a couple of different options and they voted on it. We are looking at a calendar that is very similar to this year and I think everybody's happy with that calendar. Most of the districts around say they are adopting the L-E calendar."

Thompson also gave the January enrollment report and said they ended the month of January with 2.473 students, which is down 25 students from the previous year.

District Business Manager Susie Byrd gave January's enrollment report and said the district ended the month with $10 million in cash and investment and that they have have collected $14.1 million in revenue and $5.3 million of that is tax payments.

In other business, L-E High School Principal Kendrick Smith spoke to the board about three students who wish to graduate early to pursue their college careers. He said if the measure was approved, the students would graduate with the class of 2020.

"We're really happy to know we have students who are taking that to the next level," Board President James Keeton said after the resolution was unanimously approved. "We call them pacesetters."

The next regular meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., March 14 in the Board Room 2901 Leopard Drive, Texarkana, Texas.
