After six years on the Denison Independent School District School Board, Randy Sedlacek, trustee and current secretary of the Bard, is seeking re-election for the Ward 7 place in the May 10 Denison School Board Election.
The Sadler Southmayd Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees will discuss proposed Board and district policy changes that will enable the District to adopt its proposed Defender program during a regular meeting on Thursday. The program will allow the District to authorize select teachers to carry concealed handguns on District campuses as an added form of security. The Board will discuss the proposed changes, along with points and issues brought up at last week’s public meeting on the subject, before deciding whether or not to vote on the proposal, or further develop the program. The meeting will be held at 6:30 at the S&S CISD administration building, located at 1 Ram Drive, in Sadler. Other items that will be heard, considered and acted upon include:
