During the monthly meeting of the Buckholts Lions Club on Thursday, January 5th, Buckholts ISD Superintendent Nancy Sandlin updated members and guests on Buckholts school's status with the Texas Education Agency.

December 21, 2016, Superintendent Sandlin, BISD School Board members Adam Loyosa and Samantha Marrs, with support from ESC 6 and legal representation, appeared before TEA Commissioner Mike Morath and TEA Deputy Commissioners for an Informal Review of the school's status, at TEA headquarters in Austin, TX.

Mrs. Sandlin presented data compiled by her and ESC Region 6 in an appeal to stay Commissioner Morath's decision to close Buckholts ISD. Mr. Losoya and Mrs. Marrs responded to questions about the local school board from the Commissioner. The Commissioner is taking at least 30 days to consider the findings of the Informal Review.

Also, Superintendent Sandlin reported to the club that additional part-time teachers have been hired, the computer labs have been updated and are now fully functional, additional teacher training is on-going and the activity of volunteers at the school.
