Edinburg Schools’ new Parent-Teacher Organization is already having a positive impact on the kids and the community. The organization is taking the lead in provide art education to elementary school students.
Edinburg Schools Superintendent Fred Lamkey says the district has worked hard to stabilize its coffers, but this kind of help is invaluable.
Lamkey says it’s the district’s hope to add classes like art and other opportunities back into the curriculum soon.
Lamkey says the district is lucky to have a community that is as supportive as Edinburg.
Lamkey says the district will not see a big impact from school funding reform because of where they fall in the formula, so a supportive community is a huge player in giving Edinburg kids the best education.
