(Seguin) -- When Mark Weber, an English teacher at Seguin High School, completed his master's degree in educational leadership at WGU Texas he was excited and proud but he had no idea that he would be Western Governors University's 100,000th graduate. Weber claimed that 100,000th spot among all others students who have continued their education through the online, nonprofit university established by 19 U.S. Governors 21 years ago. More

(Seguin) -- The Seguin ISD is looking at the possibility of being designated as a District of Innovation for the 2018-2019 school year.
Jason Schmidt, Seguin ISD's assistant superintendent of learning and leadership services, recently brought forth the proposal to members of the Seguin ISD Board of Trustees. Schmidt says the 84th Texas Legislative Session helped to provide this opportunity for Texas public school districts. He says the designation in essence gives the local district more freedom and flexibility when implementing innovative learning experiences or educational strategies for its students. More

(Seguin) -- The Seguin High School's state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center will soon be outfitted with a new concert piano. The sound of the overall price tag for that piano, however, wasn't all music to the ears for some members of the Seguin ISD Board of Trustees. The board on Tuesday voted 5 to 2 in favor of purchasing the $134,000 concert piano from Steinway Piano Gallery in San Antonio. Voting against the purchase were trustees Carl Jenkins and Elaina Reihl.

(Seguin) -- The Seguin ISD is working to erase any possibility of lunch shaming in it's schools. Lunch shaming isn't a local term, or a term that specifically refers to local lunchrooms or local cafeteria workers. The words "lunch shaming" are generally used to describe a practice that has occurred across the country. It describes any embarrassment a child might endure when they don't have enough money in their meal accounts to cover the cost of that day's meal. Much of that embarrassment in the past has been to throw away a lunch tray that is already in the hands of the child, and then replacing that with a sack lunch, or now in the Seguin ISD replacing it with a sandwich tray, which includes a sandwich, chips, fruit and milk.
