Lubbock ISD trustees not taking special training courses after all
LUBBOCK, Texas -
Lubbock ISD's trustees will not have to take a special training course after all.
The district is one among 11.
The Texas Education Agency notified them in October that detailed plans they had submitted for fixing under-performing schools are unsatisfactory.
In a statement to Fox 34, LISD director of communications Nancy Sharp wrote, "today, the Texas Education Agency notified Superintendent Berhl Robertson that after further review, all Lubbock ISD turnaround plans had been approved and the Board of Trustees would not be required to attend governance training as previously requested."
Sharp added implementation plans were written with TEA input, approved by the board in May and implemented with the beginning of school in August.
