Education Advocates Say School Plan Laced With “Poison Pill”
AUSTIN, Texas - Public-education advocates are crying foul over a tax-credit provision in a Texas school-reform package proposed this week by the incoming head of the Senate Education Committee. They say it's a backdoor attempt to introduce school vouchers to the state.
A bomb threat was called in to the Salado Civic Center on Main Street December 19. The Civic Center Foundation office phone number was called by an unknown person asking for a specific employee of the Civic Center.
The Salado Civic Center is home to the Salado ISD administrative offices. The caller did not mention the school during the phone call. It is not believed that any Salado ISD campuses were in danger. The six school employees who office at the Civic Center, and others inside the building were evacuated by Salado Police Department.
An explosive detection canine unit from Killeen was called to the scene and the building has been cleared.
