Justin Martin and Kara Newcomb were named to the board of trustees at the latest Slaton ISD School Board meeting March 26. Both ran unopposed for the upcoming election in May. With both candidates now confirmed, the general election for school board members is now cancelled.
The school district announced a project in which the district will buy a few dilapidated houses along 7th St. near Stephen F Austin Primary School for a future project.
“(Some homes) are a danger and are not conducive to a safe and secure learning environment for students,” Slaton ISD Superintendent Julee Becker said.
