Equitable services to private non-profit schools attending PNP schools within a reasonable distance

Body
San Saba ISD is beginning to plan its Title I program for the next school year and needs your help to determine if there are any students who live in San Saba Independent School District and attending your private nonprofit school who may be eligible for Title I services. Title I, Part A, authorized under the Every Student Succeeds Act, provides services to children who need extra educational help and reside in Title I public school attendance areas. Services can range from reading instruction several times per week during the school day, to mathematics instruction after school, to counseling services, to a family literacy program during the summer. In addition to student services, Title I provides professional development activities for private school teachers of participating children and special activities for families of Title I students.

A Word from Wayne

It’s a great day to be a Dillo! These past few months have been challenging to say the least, but this last week has been interesting as we enter the final week of school. I believe I have been asked “what if” more times in the past few days than possibly ever in my life. The questions range from the weather on graduation night to the future of education as we know it.

A Word from Wayne

It is a great day to be a Dillo! Well, it is official; we have a case of COVID-19. There may have been a little arrogance in all of us thinking we would be the chosen ones in the state not to be affected, but the reality is the coronavirus is no respecter of persons or county lines. Nobody wanted to be that first one, and there have been rumors of cases for weeks. Last week, it was me. For some reason, I was running a low-grade fever and had a small headache. At any other time I would have dismissed it until it got worse or waited for the discomfort to go away. I seldom take an Ibuprofen for anything. Out of the abundance of caution, I self-quarantined and got tested for COVID-19. I really did not feel bad, but the thermometer was showing 99.4. Under these circumstances, you do not ignore this because this is not about me, but about everybody I love and care about. I am thankful for our medical community and the risks they take every day, but to get tested is uncomfortable and inconvenient.

The Scott Miller All Sports Booster Club Scholar Athlete Award

Body
The San Saba All Sports Booster Club is proud to announce that four $500 scholarship will be given out this year to some exceptional student athletes. We are also proud to announce that the annual award is to be re-named in honor of one of San Saba’s finest, the late Scott Miller. Scott was a 1978 graduate of San Saba High School and worked for San Saba ISD for 25 years before retiring in 2018. Not only did Scott leave an everlasting impression on many lives in San Saba, his handy work around the school can still be seen today from making building repairs to painting the 50-yard line at Rogan Field. Scott Miller was truly an Armadillo through and through. Renaming this award in Scott's memory will ensure that he will be remembered for generations by his love of sports and his love for the athletes that compete in them.
