Library needs another $50K

Just as it did a few years ago when the city of Uvalde cut funding, El Progreso Memorial Library will be trying to raise $50,000 for a matching donation. This one will be a little different, however, as instead of trying to match city funds the library has been approached by a prospective donor. The donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, contacted library director Mendell Morgan with a $50,000 challenge: the potential donor will match up to $50,000 in donations by Jan. 31.

Schools have one year to improve grades

By MEGHANN GARCIA
 
Preliminary ratings released Friday morning left several local school districts with multiple Fs and few As, but they all have a year to bring up those grades before the Texas Education Agency officially switches from the current accountability system which labels campuses/districts as met standard or improvement required. The preliminary grades cover the same four categories districts are graded on currently.
