As Princeton ISD closes out the 2020-21 school year this month, improvements for each campus for the upcoming school year was discussed at the regular school board meeting held Monday, May 17.
During the meeting, principals representing each school, aside from the three who were holding graduation ceremonies that night, presented their campus improvement plans for the 2021-22 school year. First to present was Smith principal Rachel Nicks, who said Smith is working on addressing the learning gap created by the pandemic, incorporating more parent meetings and family nights, and adding a new resource position.
Lowe principal Jeff Coburn said that he is working on creating a multicultural family night as well as having second and third grade teachers participate in the science of teaching and reading academy. Lacy principal Thomas Osburn said the school is working on continuing previous principles, including minimizing time outside of school work, building better relationships with parents and incorporating family engagement.
In their first year as a school, Canup principal Vickey Dillard said the early childhood center is working on allowing parents back on campus, having additional father involvement on campus because of the desire for male role models, and adopting the new curriculum.
