October 16th, 2013
The Big Spring Independent School District has a new program designed to provide more one on one attention for students. The district brought back retired teachers to mentor small groups of students whom are at risk of falling behind in reading and math skills. During "intervention periods" the teachers read with students, focus on syllables and solve math problems. Marcy Elementary Principal Rita Faulkner says the more concentrated teaching will help boost test scores and over all performance.
