ABILENE, Texas -

Monday night at the regular AISD school board meeting, board members recognized the 70 teachers in the district who received Star Teacher Grants.  

They also announced the district received a Superior Achievement rating from the state for their financial accountability. 

Also for the first time the board met in closed, executive session to start the evaluation process for Superintendent Dr. Heath Burns. They will meet privately several more times before discussing it in the regular session. The board intends to complete Dr. Burns' evaluation by the January board meeting.

Finally, the district reported under their new energy conservation efforts they have saved more than $580,000 from December of 2011 to August of this year, a 19% cost savings across all utilities.
