MWISD scores near perfect FIRST


“The system is designed to encourage Texas public schools to manage their financial resources better in order to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes,” states the TEA website.

Also at Tuesday’s board meeting, MWISD Public Relations Coordinator Karyn Bullock presented the November Partners in Education to companies that have worked closely with the district to enhance students’ understanding of local job opportunities and job skills.

The companies complimented Tuesday were:

North Texas Pressure Vessels Inc. Bullock said the locally-owned business “provided student tours, weld-test materials, training and even employment for our students.”

BFX Fabrication, located in Millsap, which presented weld-test instruction for high school welding students.

PECOFacet, which Bullock said, “Provided our students with tours, weld-test materials, training and employment for students.” Additionally, she noted that Leann Ridens, global employee relations and development manager for PECOFacet, has not only been involved in the training initiatives, but was involved with Career Day, co-op and job-fair programs at Mineral Wells High School.

In other business, trustees:

• Approved a resolution to rejoin the efforts of the Texas Taxpayer and Student Fairness Coalition, which will return to court in January to “defend gains and prove that even though some progress has been made, the equity and adequacy gaps are still large and still unconstitutional,” according to the Haterius.

• Received the October enrollment and attendance reports from Haterius, who said enrollment by the end of the month was 3,346 students. This resulted in a refined average daily attendance of 3,100.11 – a number that eventually determines the amount of state funding to MWISD.

Haterius also presented a historic view of enrollment by grades for the past five years. Total enrollment was 3,566 in 2009-10, 3,568 in 2010-11, 3,556 in 2011-12 and 3,485 in 2012-13.

MWISD attendance, overall, was 95.55 percent. Haterius noted that Travis Elementary’s 96.37 percent and Mineral Wells Junior High’s 96.04 percent were the two highest campus attendance percentages for October.
