As Transformation Waco marks it’s first year - staff are prepping for the success of the 5 schools under its’ wing. Two schools, Indian Spring Middle School and JH Hines Elementary, are expanding a concept for afterschool programming.  

Waco ISD's preliminary STAAR results are out. The school board met last night to discuss the standardized test results for grades 3 through 12. Some schools showed improvements, but others, especially schools serving low-income areas, faced setbacks. 

The collaboration with Waco ISD and the Waco Transit to provide free bus rides to help boost attendance for students is in question as the school year comes to a close. Administrators at Waco Transit say the program costs too much and it's unclear if Waco ISD will get more grant funding to keep the project going. KWBU's Jill Ament reports.
