BRENHAM SCHOOL BOARD HEARS STAAR TEST RESULTS

The STAAR test results for Brenham schools are a mixed bag, according to a report given to the Brenham School Board last (Monday) night.

Bonnie Brinkmeyer, BISD’s Coordinator for Curriculum and Accountability, discussed the results of 2014 testing with the Board.  Brinkmeyer said some of the scores were lower in reading and math, but the standards have been raised.  Statewide the scores on the STAAR test, which stands for State of Texas Assessment of Readiness, were lower this year…especially in reading.

Also at last (Monday’s) night’s Brenham School Board meeting, Jerry Homan accused Board President Melvin Ehlert, along with Board Members Marshall Harrell and Susan Jenkins, of plotting against Superintendent Sam Bell.  Homan said emails between those three, which he had gathered from a public information request, showed a plot against Bell.  Previously Homan had called for Ehlert and Harrell to resign from the Board.
