ANGEL GUARDIAN PROGRAM BEFORE SCHOOL BOARD AGAIN

The Brenham school board is expected to set a date for a public hearing on a state rating of the district’s finances, when they meet this evening (Monday) night.

The state requires a hearing on the local district’s Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) results.

The Brenham district received a “superior achievement” in the system tabulations. It also earned that rating for the first time last year, scoring 70 out of 70 possible points.

The school board will also continue its discussions of the Brenham Angel Guardians program, which would allow trained campus personnel to carry handguns.   This proposal has been before the board for several months after BISD Supt. Sam Bell began looking for ways to prevent a mass shooting on one of the district’s campuses.  He says the armed professional personnel would have to agree to take on the duties and they would have to meet strict standards.

The board is also expected to get an update on the Alton Elementary and middle school construction projects.

Trustees will meet  (Monday) at 6 p.m. in rooms 111 and 113 at the high school.
