Questions swirl as fate of HISD board remains uncertain. Here are a few answers.

August 1905:15 AM
 

Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath came to and left the Greater Houston area Thursday without addressing one of the biggest issues on his agenda: the fate of Houston ISD’s school board.In the coming weeks, Morath likely will be forced to decide whether to replace all trustees governing Texas’ largest school district or close one of HISD’s most historic campuses, the consequence of historic Wheatley High School failing to meet state academic standards for a seventh consecutive time. While Morath was in no mood to discuss the looming decision following the release of academic accountability ratings Thursday — he hurried out of an Aldine ISD school without answering questions or making a statement on HISD — a review of comments by the commissioner, his top deputies and state education leaders offers insight into the likely process.  Barring a successful appeal of Wheatley’s grade, which became public Thursday, Morath is widely expected to strip power from the nine HISD trustees and appoint a new board of managers comprised of Houston-area residents. view article  arw

Texas put billions more into schools. Is that enough to help this high-poverty school district break out?

August 1905:08 AM
 

SAN ANTONIO — Palmira Aguirre has seen her fair share of principals come and go during her 23-year tenure as a teacher at John F. Kennedy High School — including most of a year when there was no permanent principal at all.  The Edgewood Independent School District physics teacher used to feel ashamed telling people where she worked — a school district managed by a board so mired in personal conflict that they couldn't make crucial hires to lead their high schools or their school system.  "It's like a revolving door," said Aguirre, who heads her high school's parent-teacher association. "There's no stability at the upper level." view article  arw

August 0108:31 AM
 

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently ordered Facebook to pay $5 billion in fines due to violating the privacy rights of its users, but the FTC is not the only entity dealing with digital criminal activity. As the phenomenon of teen sexting continues to grow, school districts must be ready to address the fallout when it enters the schoolhouse.

Carthage ISD taxpayers to pay more because of increased appraisal values

August 1908:40 AM
 

Carthage ISD is dropping its tax rate, but a $400 million increase in property value appraisals means the average taxpayer will see a $35 increase this year.

School finance changes result in increased teacher pay, but falls short of lawmaker promises

August 1908:40 AM
 

While lawmakers never quite reached the $5,000 teacher raises they tried to sell the public on, local districts are doing what they can to ensure teachers are seeing their biggest raises in years. An analysis of data from local school districts shows that Smith County area districts are digging deep into local funds to ensure teachers are getting bigger pay bumps than usual. While most teachers will not see a salary increase of $5,000, most in the area will benefit from raises at least twice as large as those given in the past two years, if raises were given at all. view article  arw

Austin Failed At Desegregation Before. That History Influences Today’s School Closure Decisions.

August 1908:40 AM
 

In 1987, the Austin ISD school board voted to end crosstown busing for elementary students. The decision created 16 elementary schools made up almost entirely of minority students. “Now, when I look at the schools that are under-enrolled and low performing, they tend to be those same schools,” said Roxanne Evans, who reported on education for the Austin American-Statesman in the 1980s. view article  arw

10 Charter Schools Fail State Standards as Most Charter Districts Improve

August 1908:40 AM
 

San Antonio charter schools received grades from the Texas Education Agency on Thursday that evaluate the previous year’s performance and show whether district and campus performance grew, declined, or remained flat.  In most cases, local charter school districts improved year-over-year. However, five charter districts – including KIPP Texas and Great Hearts Texas, which last year operated a total of 10 campuses in San Antonio – received lower grades than in the previous year. Great Hearts Texas fell from an A to a B, while KIPP Texas got a B for the second year in a row. view article  arw

August 1908:40 AM
 

It was an almost completely glorious day for Houston ISD Thursday as dignitaries, staff, district officials and true believers gathered at Kashmere High School to celebrate that school finally scoring a "C" in the state accountability ratings.  Because when you're looking at another "F," clearing the hurdles with a "C" is next to a miracle. U.S. Rep Sheila Jackson Lee and Mayor Sylvester Turner were among those addressing the packed room, praising all concerned including the students.

Just as quickly as the Texas Education Agency (TEA) released its district ratings Thursday, Lewisville ISD released its thoughts on the system. For the second year the TEA assigned districts across the state with a letter grade based on three categories – all of which stem from student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test.
