Superintendent Sherry Hughes reported that transportation services benefited by the lower fuel costs of this spring.

The board also approved the consent agenda consisting of minutes from the July 20 meeting, the 2015-16 NCLB grant award and teacher evaluations. They also approved a resolution to sanction 4-H as an extracurricular activity for the 2015-16 school year.

Also approved was the C-CISD Board Operating Procedures Manual, which had undergone a review in an earlier meeting. They also approved the C-CISD District Improvement Team Goals and Objectives report and the board meeting calendar for 2015-16. They set the date of Aug. 25 at 6:30 p.m. for the tax rate and proposed budget public hearing.

During the Superintendent's report Hughes reviewed the UIL guidelines and calendar for the 2015-16 school year and the projected enrollment figures for each campus. She noted the Student Engagement Local Accountability Ratings showed strong involvement this year.
