Hearne ISD to hold public meetings to discuss turnaround plans

HEARNE, Tex. (KBTX) - Hearne ISD will be holding two public meetings to address turnaround plans for their elementary and junior high schools.

Due to failing grades, the TEA had recently tried to take over operations of Hearne ISD but the district fought back, and won.

Both, the junior high and elementary school received TEA ratings of "needs improvement" this year.

The district is holding meetings during two back-to-school nights to give parents a chance to ask questions and give suggestions.

Hearne Elementary will hold their meeting this Thursday, September 14th at 5 p.m.

The junior high meeting will be held at 5 p.m. on Monday, September 18th.
