Hardin County schools top, bottom out rankings list

By Tim Collins

Children At Risk, a nonprofit organization that advocates for children through research, education and public policy, released its annual Texas School Rankings list for 2017.

The list factors student performances on STAAR reading and math tests, each campus' overall performance, improvements in test results, and college readiness factors such as graduation rates, SAT/ACT participation rates, and rates of participation in AP/IB tests, to determine how schools rank throughout Texas.

The methodology of the ranking also factors in elements such as economic bias, adjusting for schools in economically disadvantaged districts who may not have the advantages other schools have.

Year in Review: 2017

WHAT A YEAR!

Silsbee, county weather tragedy into new year

By Tim Collins

 

Throughout 2017, a series of tragedies rocked the Silsbee community and Southeast Texas.

The string of tragedies began in May, when Kirbyville principal Dennis Reeves took his life on May 23. Less than three months later, Silsbee Volunteer Fire Chief Jay Hinkie was struck and killed by a vehicle while working the scene of a wreck on Aug. 2.

"The loss of Jay Hinkie was felt in every heart," Silsbee councilwoman Adalaide Balaban said. "He was a man who answered every call. He went to the fires, but he also went to the schools to teach fire safety to our children. He spoke at every business and community organization that requested his presence. He was a leader, a teacher and a friend. Our community grieved together."
