MIDLAND - Big changes are coming to the Midland Independent School District.
Midland ISD Superintendent Doctor Ryder Warren announced plans to assign new principals at a majority of the elementary schools in Midland.
Warren says the changes are being made based on the strengths and needs of the individual campuses.
The Midland ISD budget is also getting some extra attention.
The district is planning on hiring several new teachers in the coming months.
Warren says he will recommend an increase in support programs for teachers as well as asking school board members for a pay raise specifically aimed at teachers.
He says the student teacher ratios have become "unacceptable" and these are steps the district can take to help the problem.
