Denton ISD’s eighth middle school named for Rudy and Rosemary Rodriguez

Denton ISD’s eighth middle school finally has a name. After a lenghty open meeting, board members deliberated into the early morning hours Wednesday during closed session and voted unanimously to dub the building the Dr. Rudy and Rosemary Rodriguez Middle School. The name honors a local couple who share a passion for education and have contributed to Denton schools since the 1970s.

Emily McPherson: New policy sends the wrong message to DISD students

The Denton school district has made a controversial (or, as the school board called it: courageous and brave) move regarding grading policies to take effect next year.

It also does away with the six-week grading periods, replacing them with nine-week periods.
