Faith Huffman | News-Telegram News Editor

Anyone interested in how Sulphur Springs Independent School District stacked up during its annual financial evaluation last year can find out at Monday's school board meeting, which begins in the the administration building at 6 p.m.

In addition to the public meeting regarding the district's final 2006 School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas evaluation, trustees will hear updates on a U.S. Department of Justice grant the district will receive, and will consider approving another application to apply for an Early College High School Grant which would allow the district to offer at-risk students the opportunity to complete an associate degree or 60 hours of college credit toward a baccalaureate degree by the time they finish high school.

Richard Crump is also slated to give an update on progress on construction projects at Sulphur Springs High School and Early Childhood Learning Center.

Presented on the consent agenda for approval under one heading are resolutions designating Hopkins County 4-H organization eligible for extracurricular status, naming extension staff as adjunct faculty members, the quarterly investment report for June-Aug. 31, tax credits and supplements for August, delinquent tax collections for August, and financial statements and bills payable for August.

The board will also review a proposed teacher appraisal calendar and individuals to conduct those appraisals and consider approving it as an action item.

At the end of the meeting, the board will meet in executive session for any real property or personnel matters which may have arisen since the last meeting. Following that closed session, the board will reconvene to take any action should any be needed pertaining to that session.

Monday's meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the board room of the SSISD Administration building, 631 Connally St., as is generally the case for all regular board meetings which are conducted the second Monday of each month, with the exceptions of March and December due to holidays.
