WFISD Board of Trustees Discuss Education for the Future

<br>The Wichita Falls Independent School District Board of Trustees will&nbsp; be looking over data in the district wide facility study and may be proposing recommendations later this month.

The Wichita Falls Independent School District Board of Trustees will  be looking over data in the district wide facility study and may be proposing recommendations later this month.

But they say they have no plans now to close or consolidate any schools.  

The board was presented with an update to the facility study master plan at a work session today.

The study reviewed today shows which schools are getting crowded and which schools are losing enrollment.

It also shows which schools need the most work and improvement to bring up the quality and standard of instruction.

The board also discussed the controversial C-Scope Curriculum again.

Superintendent Dr. John Frossard says he agrees with critics that  c-scope has disadvantages  but it also has advantages.

He says completely doing away with C-Scope  would do much more harm than good.

Superintendent Dr. John Frossard says "Our district has worked on implementing c-scope for a number of years and they've invested allot of time and money in it and the thought of abandoning c-scope over night is not only premature but its impractical and would leave us with lots of gaps in our curriculum".

Board members say are waiting on the state board of education's review of C-Scope before making changes.

In the meantime a school spokesperson says the complaints of parents not being able to see and help with their children's lessons has been fixed and parents can now check them on the WFISD Web Site.
