Hundreds of students, parents, and teachers came together tonight to discuss the vision of the Lubbock Cooper Independent School District.
It's been five years since the school board hosted a forum like this one. Attendees were treated to a fajita dinner and then a presentation outlining the school board's goals for the district. Some of the issues discussed included: school safety, the TAKS test, and school finance. The presentation was followed by a question and answer session, and each person in attendance was given an information packet detailing the school board's plan.
The final order of business at the meeting was to honor Lubbock Cooper Vice President Sharon Maines. NewsChannel 11's own Sharon Maines has been a member of the Lubbock Cooper School Board for 12 years. She announced this year that she will not be seeking re-election in May. Lubbock Cooper School Board President, Shawn Sampley, says Sharon will be missed.
