Southern Association team members inspected both schools, spending time with the students to found out how the children felt about their schools The report reflected that both schools have strong student pride as well as enormous support from parents and the community The high school received commendations for its use of volunteers, particularly those who provided assistance in grading about 2.(KH) stu dent sample TEAMS tests Also commended were the new programs such as Olympics of the Minds and peer counseling. Several areas were cited as needing improvement The majority of those areas centered around a lack of space at the school. The study also recommended that curriculum guides be updated, something Turman said the staff will continue to work on The study recommended several physical changes at the middle school to update the facility The building, built in 1951. also was noted as an extremely well maintained building Karnau said improvements at the school are being made as quickly a> possible He added that the school district is at a cross roads as to build a new middle school or use new ly ac quired property for another elementary school He said the existing building is in good condition except for mostly cosmetic problems such as outdated lighting and ceilings VII ot these things recommendations tor improvement are ongoing There wasn't anything that was new They are lust things that frankly take time." he said The report recommended that txith schools should develop more clearly defined sex education curriculum Karnau said sex education at the middle school level consists of teaching a tx) ut reproductive systems in science classes as a matter of life science He agreed that the cur riculum needs to be improved hut said it will take a major effort on the mended the special education personnel for their enthusiasm and noted that student behavior in the program is good The study also noted that the dudent-teacher ratio in the middle ichool s special education program s high and that functional lesson )lans do not exist The study team nembers noted that access to the special education area needs to be improved to accommodate physical Iv handicapped students Karnau said since the special education program is on the second floor of the building an elevator would need to be installed to make access possible for students in wheelchairs. "In the years that I have been here we have had only youngster in a wheelchair and that's been :?h years. " Karnau said He add ed that tin* matter w ill need to be considered by the district's long range planning committee Also cited as an area of concern at the middle seh(K>l was the tact that the percentage of minority statf members is far lower than the percentage of minority students In the school district as a whole, less than IO percent of teachers are Hispanic while 42 percent of students are Hispanic. The middle school staff was commended for being friendly and pro fessional and maintaining good rapport w ith students The study recommended that the district should recruit and employ more minority students as vacancies occur Karnau agreed that more minority teachers are needed and he said he has tried to change the percentages, adding that three minority members joined the middle school staff last year "We consistantly search for the best applicants It increasing the percentage of minority teachers is something we really do work on. hut it's been slow " the principal said overall, the Southern Association study commended the school district on its effort to meet the changing needs of students The driver and traffic safety program at the high school did not even receive a recoin mendation for improving any thing Faculty members from both the high school and middle school work ed throughout the 1986-88 school year to complete the self study which the visiting professional used in its accreditation visit Teachers divided into committees to study their areas of expertise as well as to consider* issues such as community involve ment and facilities Lucille McDavid Neuse, who serv ed on the steering committee for the high sch(x)l self study as well as chaired the committee studying the school's history department, said the study was benefitial to the teachers involved Although teachers spend numerous hours in committee meetings evaluating their own per formative as an educational facility she said the study improved the teachers sense of pride in their school and forced them to find ways to improve the schixil State to help in search for teen's body AUSTIN \P Two state agen vies were slated today to join the search tor the remains ot a 17 year old youth who was washed away two weeks ago by the rampaging Guadalupe River Gov Bill e lements office announced John Frankston Jr has been miss mg since July 17. when floodwaters swept away a busload ot Dallas area church campers returning from a camp near Comfort The youth last was seen helping others to safety during the river s worst flooding in 55 years The bodier of nine other teenagers were recovered from thee river and ?;? peo pie w ere rescued Bankston’s lather John Bankston Sr . on Monday visited with Hillary Doran, the governor s chief of staff to ask for the state's help in finding the body Reggie Bashur.
