Boy Burned: A six-year-old child was airlifted to a Houston hospital Wednesday after being badly burned in an accident at a Tarkington area home. Liberty County Sheriff’s Captain Ken DeFoor said the little boy was playing with other family members in the backyard of their grandparent’s residence on State Highway 146 North. Captain DeFoor said the child was burned on his face and chest when another child threw some type of unknown chemical into a small fire, causing a flash fire. The young boy was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston by air ambulance for treatment. The burns are not thought to be life threatening.

LISD Budget: Liberty school trustees approved a deficit budget Tuesday night that requires $768,000 from the general fund balance to meet expenses. That budget includes a raise for all district employees. The Liberty ISD board also adopted a corresponding tax rate of $1.394 cents per $100 property valuation. That is a decrease of one cent per $100 valuation. Julie Hebert is the Liberty school district’s chief financial officer and director of business services. She said the general fund budget projects revenue of $19.99 million with expenditures of $20.76 million. The adopted compensation plan includes a $1,550 pay increase for all teachers plus an additional $500 to $1,000 raise for educators in their first through eighth years of teaching. That Liberty ISD compensation plan also includes a 3 percent raise for all other district staff plus a few adjustments to certain jobs, such as bus drivers as well as maintenance and cafeteria workers. This year’s pay raise added about $530,000 to the district’s budget. Mrs. Hebert said 75 percent of the district’s general fund budget goes toward payroll and benefits.
****************************************************
Devers ISD: A South Liberty County school district has been ranked high on a school rating website. SchoolDigger.com has been ranking school performance nationwide since 2006. The site recently ranked the Devers Independent School District 11th out of 933 school districts. The school rankings are calculated based on test scores released by the Texas Education Agency. The rankings were updated on July 27 and are based on the most recent test scores available. Devers school Superintendent Elizabeth Harris said being 11th in the state would not be possible without dedicated teachers and staff.
