Premont holds breath for state's decision on school district
PREMONT — The big question hanging over Premont for a year may soon be answered.
Will the school district, the heart of this tiny South Texas town, still be open in the fall?
With the state inching closer to an announcement, the town is growing restless for a decision. Some students left, even transferring to the district’s longtime rival, Brooks County ISD. Still others may leave even if the district stays open.
But many others have remain steadfast in their belief that Premont will thrive, and that the district has gone above and beyond the state’s requirements to continue to stay open.
According to the remainder of the article, it appears that the town has turned things around and invigorated the school with financial support. Hopefully, this school district will not suffer the same fate as the North Forest ISD near Houston when TEA commissioner Michael Williams decides whether the school stays open. Otherwise, the students will face long bus rides to the school district that absorbs Premont ISD.
