Winfield schools to close doors end of June

Four years of focused efforts to turn around test scores at the Winfield Independent School District and legal administrative appeals came to an end with the issuance of a final order by a judge with the Texas Office of Administrative Hearings.

Winfield ISD was one of four Texas schools to lose accreditation thus far this year. All had fewer than 200 student populations. The district will be annexed into the Mount Pleasant ISD effective July 1, 2018. For the rest of this story, see the April 12 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
