The Herald Banner reports a local substitute teacher described unsupportive administration, chaotic environments.

  • In Hunt County, this week’s Greenville school district board meeting included a discussion of student behavior. The Greenville Herald Banner reports a Greenville Independent School District substitute teacher told the board that administrators are insufficiently supportive of teachers when students are aggressive or threatening toward teachers. The substitute also described problems related to classes that don’t have assigned teachers. The Herald Banner also reports Greenville ISD deputy superintendent Wes Underwood presented some options for improving student behaviors. Several Greenville ISD trustees also expressed dissatisfaction with the discipline climate at Greenville ISD campuses.
  • A law enforcement training exercise has been scheduled for today on the campus of Texas A&M University-Commerce. The A&M-Commerce Department of Emergency Management and Safety, in cooperation with the University Police Department and other Hunt County public safety agencies, will conduct an emergency management training exercise this afternoon at 2 p.m. on Education Drive at the Alpha Phi sorority house. The event will not disrupt classes or other university business, but a university release says Education Drive and its parking areas will be closed today. People are asked to avoid the area during the exercise.
