WFISD Board Meeting - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

WFISD Board Meeting

The Wichita Falls Independent School District will be meeting on Monday night for their board meeting.  There are a number of items on the agenda.

One of the items is about inclement weather days.  The board will vote of whether or not the district can officially file paperwork with the state to waive two makeup school days.  They were missed because of the winter weather. 

In total the district used missed four days of school because of the weather, but they have two mandatory makeup days in their calendar.  However, there are still the two remaining days.  If the state declines the waiver the district would have to find two more days to put in their calendar before graduation.

Another topic at the meeting on Monday night is picking a name for the consolidated Zundy and Barwise Junior High.

The meeting is taking place at the Administration Building at 6:00p.m.

Newschannel 6 Taylor Barnes will be at that meeting to see what they decide on.  Tune in on Newschannel 6 at 9 and 10 for the latest information.
