LA VERNIA -- Schools in the La Vernia Independent School District (ISD) continue to reap the rewards of technology. This was demonstrated as the district’s various campuses presented improvement plans during the Jan. 28 board of trustees meeting.
Administrative officials from all campuses made presentations to the board, focused primarily on the benefits received from the newly acquired iPads distributed to employees and Thin Client computer systems introduced in the district.
“Our students and staff have been reaping the rewards of the technology in the classrooms,” said Allen Bordelon, La Vernia ISD technology director. “Over time, as staff becomes more familiar with the technology, more and more will be able to be accomplished; the possibilities really are endless.”
Also during the meeting, the board met with Phil Vaughan of Armstrong, Vaughan and Associates, P.C., the district’s auditing firm.
“We really did not have any significant issues to deal with, so that is a good reflection on [the finance department],” Vaughan said. “Overall, the district received a clean audit. This was our first time working with La Vernia ISD and the process went well.”
In other business, the board:
•Recognized the La Vernia High School Investment Team for placing first at competition.
•Received a technology update from Bordelon.
•Accepted a donation from the Wilson County Retired School Personnel.
