The DeSoto Independent School District announced Saturday that students will not have Presidents’ Day off.
The pressure to play hard is the norm for so many young athletes. Yet sometimes, the intensity of the game can push students too far, leading to a serious injury like a concussion.
The DeSoto School Board is set to discuss the future of the new superintendent who came from an Atlanta school system embroiled in allegations of widespread cheating on standardized tests.
Trustees of the DeSoto Independent School District held a lengthy closed-door meeting that lasted late into the night before Superintendent Kathy Augustine read a statement announcing she was taking the leave of absence effective Tuesday.
Today is the first day on the job for DeSoto’s new school superintendent. But, under fire for a cheating scandal in Georgia, Kathy Augustine’s first day could also be her last.
She won’t officially start work until next week but the new DeSoto Independent School District Superintendent is already under a cloud of suspicion. New hire Dr. Kathy Augustine comes to DeSoto from the Atlanta, Georgia school system.
