MCISD discusses crisis plan

Posted

The Madisonville CISD school board held their monthly meeting Nov. 9 and discussed the district’s updated Crisis Management Policies and Procedures.

“We didn't change anything that was already in there other than personnel information,” said MHS Principal Heath Brown, who reported the updates in the 120-page plan to the board. “With some of the new laws that have been passed, the focus in reviewing this was going to be on communicable diseases, so we added a (communicable disease) section, primarily based off the county’s school recommendations and information.”

The state also requested information in the updated plan regarding how districts will specifically deal with COVID-19 in schools. Along with other districts across the state and country, MCISD has been navigating the issues of the virus since last spring.

“What we did was take the information the district already created and posted on the website,” said Brown. “That was just plugged into the emergency operations plan for the district.”

The meeting took place before the district decided to close all campuses in the week leading up to Thanksgiving break as a precautionary measure relating to an uptick in COVID-19 activity among some students and staff.

Madisonville’s Students of the Month, while not in attendance, were recognized by name at the meeting. These students included Denisse Zavala (Elementary), Emily Penaloza (Intermediate), Jaden Pope (Jr. High) and Josh Griffin (High School).

The district’s Employees of the Month included Casey Dean and Stacey Koffskey of the Jr. High campus.

The board also heard a presentation from MHS Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Regional Officers Audrey Wootton and Klarivet Reyes-Silva.
