Bryan School Board Updated on Next Year’s School Calendar & Relocating Programs

Bryan school district maintenance crews have already started preparing the Bryan High blue campus to be the new home of the Hammond-Oliver human services program. That’s to open up the existing Hammond-Oliver building near St. Joseph’s hospital to serve an increase of 300 students in the Mary Catherine Harris at-risk program. Superintendent Tommy Wallis expects moving students off-traditional campuses will reduce the number of student referrals and citations.

In two weeks, the board will consider remodeling Bryan High and start-up expenses for the expanded at-risk program, which have an estimated cost of $363,000 dollars.

Also in two weeks, the board will vote on next year’s school calendar, which now has 60 percent support of nearly 6,000 surveyed to end the first week of June. That endorsement was across the board from 3,300 responses by students as young as third grade, along with 1,300 parents, 1,200 district employees, and 200 community members.

David Stasny was among three board members want to know how administrators will work with a dozen Bryan and Rudder high school students who will take summer college classes also scheduled the first week of June. Deputy Superintendent Tim Rocka says counselors will work with affected students the same way as Bryan Collegiate students who face the same issue.
