Several Gold Star Awards were presented during the SISD (Sweetwater Independent School District) Board of Trustees meeting on Monday evening, Nov. 21, 2011 at the Administration Building.
The Gold Performance Acknowledgment awards recognize school districts and campuses that have attained high performance indicators. However, the standards have been raised by 5%, making the award harder to come by.
SHS (Sweetwater High School) was given a Gold Star for Commended Performance in Social Studies; SMS (Sweetwater Middle School) also achieved Commended Performance in Social Studies.
