PREMONT, Texas (AP) - A struggling South Texas school district has approved terms issued by the Texas Education Agency in order to stay open.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times (https://bit.ly/22wfIDc ) reports the Premont Independent School District board of trustees unanimously approved the terms Monday, which means a Texas Education Agency-appointed management team will oversee its board and direct the search for a superintendent.

In November, the TEA told the district that its accreditation had been revoked and it would close July 1. The district sought a review. The education commissioner offered to abate the review process until preliminary academic and financial accountability ratings are released in August.

Since its first closure notice in 2011, the district in a rural farming community has overcome financial struggles, but student academic performance hasn’t been up to par.
