The Big Spring ISD Board of Trustees had a regular meeting yesterday evening. Here are some of the highlights from the meeting:

The Board approved the Howard County Appraisal District Budget was approved by a 3-1 vote, with Melissa Miller voting against.
Guardian Update - Guardians have been working with both local law enforcement agencies to receive training for this school year. BSISD Superintendent Jay McWilliams noted that an email advising that there would be another opportunity to become a Guardian. It was noted by *Womack that when training is given for new guardians, the original group of guardians would receive training again in order to ensure that Guardians are constantly improving in their training.
