MISD board to tackle employee grievances

By Brenda Sommer
Managing Editor

Mexia ISD trustees will spend quality time behind closed doors when they hold their monthly board meeting Monday night.

The board first will take usual reports before hearing how many students take the ACT and SAT exams, which are part of the qualifications colleges use to decide which students to accept. This information was requested by the board at a previous meeting.

Trustees also will look at an April 23-27 trip the Blackcat Band plans to take to Branson, Mo., to tour and perform.

The band will travel by charter bus and stay in a hotel in Branson. They have been raising funds for the trip, which costs $525 per student. District money will not be used for the trip. Board policy is that out-of-state trips must be approved by trustees.
