The Dublin Independent School District Board of Trustees met Tuesday night and elected officers. Mike Jurney is president, Don Keith is vice president and Garron House will serve as secretary.
The board heard a report from the architect on roofing for the new Intermediate School although no decision was made. Superintendent Roy Neff said bids will probably not open until September.
Preliminary TAKS testing results are in, Neff said.
Neff said he is pleased with the high school’s results. The percentage of students meeting the standard went up in almost every category and 100 percent of Dublin seniors will graduate.
Neff said he is also pleased with seventh grade results. This year’s seventh graders were in third grade the first year the TAKS was given. Eighty-four percent met the standard in reading, 77 percent in math and 99 percent in writing.
Neff said fourth grade students did not fare as well as expected with 71 percent passing in reading, 66 percent in math, and 73 percent in writing. Fifth grade students saw an increase in the passing percentages for every subject.
Neff said third and fifth grade students will have one more opportunity to pass the reading test and fifth grade will also have one more opportunity to pass the math.
