STAAR results improved

MUNDAY – The STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) results for grades three, four and five improved significantly over last year’s results, surpassing goals and improving scores.

Elementary Principal Kristi Bufkin reported “Our scores for 2020-2021 exceeded the previous year’s results in spite of Covid.” Bufkin attributed this outstanding achievement to “…awesome teachers and students.”

In other actions, the Board of Trustees for Munday CISD reviewed changes in the student dress code being implemented for the upcoming school year.

Shoes closed on at least one end will be permitted, but footwear open on both ends, as in flip-flops, will not be allowed. Jewelry worn in piercings may not be worn, no spacers in nose rings will be permitted, and tattoos must be covered. Fingernail polish may be worn by girls only, and trench coats or undergarments worn on the outside will not be admissible.
