During their regular meeting held Monday, Nov. 18, Burnet CISD trustees approved a targeted improvement plan for Burnet Middle School after BMS received a “Comprehensive Support” status due to low STAAR scores; the campus is monitored by the Texas Education Agency under the 2019 Accountability System with this status.

Campus leadership and District administration performed a needs assessment for the campus and have planned to take action to bring up academic performance at BMS and improve its STAAR performance and academic achievement as a whole.

Actions outlined in the improvement plan include developing campus instructional leaders with clear roles, utilizing objective-driven lesson plans with formative assessments, and using data-driven instruction.

Another step taken in improvements at the campus was the approval of an Assistant Principal position for the BMS campus to provide academic and administrative assistance as well as behavioral support, allowing the current principal to focus on other instructional needs throughout the campus. The position is now open on the district's website, burnetcisd.net. . . .
