Mason ISD Receives Exemplary Rating in Preliminary Results
Wednesday, July 29, 2009 • Posted July 29, 2009

During the July 20 meeting of the Mason I.S.D. board of trustees, Superintendent Matt Underwood reported to the board that early results from state test results indicated that the Mason schools, once again, would be ranked as exemplary.

Mr. Underwood explained that adjustments in the scoring mainly benefitted larger urban schools and "pulled down" the results of schools like Mason. However, even with the adjustments, he noted, Mason would still be able to enjoy the highest ranking available from the state.

In other action, the trustees discussed student insurance. They were informed that the policies do NOT cover student athletics, and such policies were expensive and paid only minimal reimbursements.

Superintendent Underwood also informed the board that even though they had received bids for possible implementation of Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), he felt it prudent to wait until later to move on that item.
