School District Under Review

The Nacogdoches School Board is using the expertise of professionals for a 'Texas School Performance Review. The findings are now closer to being released.

Some individuals have now had a chance to comment on a preliminary review. Superintendent Dr. Tony Riehl said only five districts in the state have commissioned this review.

Some board members are optimistic the results will lead to improvements. Board President Richard Fischer said, "The value of the Texas Performance Review to us is going to be, we hope, a blueprint for those changes. This is not just another consultation report. We hope we're going to use what they give us to generate a plan of action to make badly needed changes."

The findings of the review will be released at a public meeting once a final report is complete.
