BISD finalizing its budget, salaries, tax rate

With school a little more than a week away, Bowie Independent School District Trustees Monday night adopted the amended Student Code of Conduct and review updates to the student handbook.
A budget workshop also took place as the funding templates from the state are finalized and the board considered salary schedules and tax rates.
For the student handbook, the primary changes were made at the secondary school level at junior and senior high schools. Superintendent Blake Enlow said there were adjustments made to hair length with a focus on hair being a problem if it is a safety issue or distraction. Facial hair also is allowed if it is well groomed and clean, which is determined at the discretion of the campus principal. Shorts are allowed at a level three inches above the knee.
