Colmesneil ISD held its monthly school board meeting on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 and discussed various small agenda items that will go into effect in the upcoming school year.
The board first welcomed its new athletic director, Fancy Johnson, and said they were very encouraged that there are more than 40 kids coming to the open Gym at the school to work out and prepare for the upcoming sports season.
In addition to the new Athletic Director, the district welcomed 4 new teachers. Tammy Dickenson, Heather Mitcham, Jenice Kerr, and Brenda Goode will all be joining the teaching staff in the 2012-2013 school year.
In other business, they made some small changes to the 2012-2013 school year. A new dress code was put into place that states that undergarments must be concealed not only during school hours but school functions as well. For students, this means no "saggy pants" or loose bra straps.
Colmesneil also updated on various stadium improvements for the upcoming football season. A new fence will be installed in front of the stands so that both the players and spectators will be better protected from injury.
