You asked! We changed!

You’re invited to take our website survey to find out if the new website is meeting your needs.

During the last few months, we’ve been working to revamp our campus websites based on the feedback we received from focus groups, and online user surveys. Your feedback was critical because it helped us understand why people visit our websites and what they are trying to achieve once they get there.

It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!

We take your feedback very seriously, and want to provide parents with a valuable resource. If one of your favorite features from the old site is missing: let us know… (Gently – remember the Golden Rule!)

Click on this link to take the survey immediately.

TELPAS for ESL students will run from February 11 through April 5
Dear parents of ELL students (including parent denials)

English Language Learners (ELLs) in grade K-12, including parent denials are required to be assessed through the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS).

The Texas Education Agency developed TELPAS to meet state and federal testing requirements for assessing the English language proficiency of ELLs in four language domains: listening, speaking, reading and writing. TELPAS assesses the Texas English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), which are part of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).

The assessment components for grades K–1 and 2–12 differ in the following ways:

• Grades K–1: Holistically rated listening, speaking, reading, and writing assessments based on ongoing classroom observations and student interactions.

• Grades 2–12: Online reading and listening and speaking tests and holistically rated student writing collections .

For these assessments, teachers are trained to use proficiency level descriptors to determine the English language proficiency levels of students.

State testing calendar for TELPAS is February 11, 2019 through April 5, 2019.

Our school is going to assess students between February 11 and March 28.
