Dr. Kathy Rollo Discusses The New School Year and T.E.A. Ratings
Tuesday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, the superintendent of the Lubbock Independent School District Dr. Kathy Rollo joined Dave and Matt to talk about the upcoming school year, what the district expects, school supplies, increased school security, visitor rule changes for sporting events at Plainscapital Park, the Texas Education Agency's state accountability system and more.
Lubbock ISD starts school back up on August 14th, and Dr. Rollo imparted information regarding what is new and what to expect. She started by saying that they greeted the 320 new teachers yesterday, which brings the total number of teachers to about 1700. When asked if she thinks the student body will be larger compared to last year, Dr. Rollo said,
We're not anticipating it to be larger. We are hoping that it's about the same.
Dr. Rollo also talked about the Texas Education Agency's state accountability system, which is used to rate school districts. Last year, the district was rated at a 77, or a "C". Rollo said that they were not satisfied with this at the time. This year they have been rated at an 86, or a "B". She hopes that they can some day reach an A ranting.
As the school year starts, Dr. Rollo encourages parents to call their children's schools for any questions regarding the new school year.
