TEXARKANA — The Texarkana Independent School District (TISD) board of trustees approved of Interlocal Government Agreement Joint Election at their regular session on Aug. 24.
The agreement was one of three approvals the board of trustees made along with reviewing an amendment to the TISD 2022-23 Student Handbook.
In 2006, the legislature passed legislation that required entities in a county to conduct joint elections under certain circumstances. The bond election will be one of those circumstances because it will occur on the same day as the November general election.
TISD and Bowie County are required to enter into a joint election agreement. It has already been approved by the county.
The board of trustees also approved T-TESS Appraiser List for 2022-23, which provides for TISD to choose to use the commissioner’s recommended teacher appraisal system, the Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS) that was developed in accordance with Texas Education Code (TEC), 21.351. Annually, the school district adopts a list of approved appraisers within the district. District appraisers will be certified by having satisfactorily completed uniform appraiser training or recertification prior to conducting teacher appraisals.
The board also approved painting for Tiger Learning Centers at the Wake Village and Nash locations.
