Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
PARIS, Texas - Recently a contract consultant with the Texas Association of School Boards presented a staffing review to the Paris school board.
Superintendent Paul Jones says the study showed the support staff is overstaffed, while areas like special education and maintenance are understaffed.The study compares Paris ISD to the state average as well as five similar districts.
Jones says there are no plans to fire employees, but they do plan to eliminate positions over the next two to three years as employees leave.
