“I’d like to thank the staffers, particularly at Elm Grove … ,” said Dixon. “Some of the teachers stayed on our campuses until 2 a.m. or even through the night, ensuring the safety of our 40,000 students across the district.”

The board was shown an “Inspiring Moments” video that featured the Work-Coaching Program sponsored by the district that matches special education students with local business owners to teach responsibilities and job skills.

The video was created by Jonathan Frey, the district’s assistant director of public communications, and the program is led by Geralyn Sullivan, the district’s transition coordinator of special education.

Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen recognized Sullivan along with students, such as Chris DeLeon, and business owners.

“We are continually looking for local area business owners that would like to partner with students such as the ones who stand with me at the front of the room.

“If you or someone you know would be a good candidate to educate these students, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.,” Sullivan said.

Super Staffer Awards were given to elementary, middle and high school teachers and administrators for excellent service throughout the year.

Board Secretary Robert Sitton announced that baseball playoffs are in full swing, rain and all. “Atascocita and Kingwood are still in the race,” he said.

After all member reports were given, action items were approved from the closed session, including student expulsions and contract renewals.

It was announced that as in past years, the Prize Posse awarded over $1 million within the district.

All applicable consent agenda items were approved as read and the meeting adjourned after no topics were presented for consideration of future board business.
