Yesterday, it was announced that Big Spring Junior High had received a Gold Star Distinction from the Texas Education Association for being in the Top 25% of schools that have excelled in Student Progress, which measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group. The staff had a surprise banner presentation by Superintendent Chris Wigington and Jay McWilliams during their staff development day.
“We’re extremely proud of kids and our staff, they’ve worked so hard!" says BSJHS Principal Becky Otto. "We’ve been digging out for a couple of years as far as staying above the level on our accountability, but to get a distinction on student growth is really exciting to us!”
