HISD pushes back deadline for school choice application

September 2708:30 AM
 

School choice is a system by which students can choose to transfer from their zoned campus to another Houston ISD school, including thematic magnet schools. The Houston Independent School District is pushing back its deadlines for applications to magnet and other school choice programs until December but released few details about the new time-line or a planned overhaul to the software system used to collect applications and conduct lotteries. HISD leaders say the change is an attempt to make the system more equitable and to provide the district more time to tweak the new software for the application. view article  arw

September 2708:30 AM
 

A gunman opened fire in a school in central Russia on Monday, killing 17 people and wounding 24 others before shooting himself dead, authorities said.

Russia’s Investigative Committee identified the gunman as 34-year-old Artyom Kazantsev, a graduate of the same school, and said he was wearing a black t-shirt bearing "Nazi symbols." No details about his motives have been released. The government of Udmurtia said 17 people, including 11 children, were killed in the shooting. According to Russia's Investigative Committee, 24 other people, including 22 children, were wounded in the attack. view article  arw

Ferris:  Superintendent Hartman to step down

September 2705:00 AM
 

The Ferris ISD Board of Trustees accepted the resignation and pending Texas retirement of Superintendent James Hartman on Tuesday night at their regular September meeting. Hartman's final day at the helm of the District will be October 7th, with the Board set to consider appointment of an Acting Superintendent at a special called meeting next week. Hartman joined FISD in July of 2015 after having successfully served as a Texas public school superintendent for 14 years throughout the state; including being named Region XIII Superintendent of the Year in 2010. This August marked the beginning of his eighth year as the CEO of Jacket Nation. Hartman's tenure has featured significant enrollment growth, system-wide modernization, a doubling of financial reserves, and the highest student academic achievement rating since the full implementation of STAAR/EOC testing.    (27) view article  arw

Central Texas school districts partner with E3 Alliance to create advanced courses for students

September 2705:00 AM
 

AUSTIN, Texas - Students who take higher level math are proven to have better odds at graduating, going to college, landing a living wage job, says E3 Alliance. The organization is teaming up with Central Texas school districts to create solutions and systems so students have that option of taking these courses. "[It’s] setting them up for success," said Round Rock ISD parent John Jackson. Jackson believes his children are set up for success, and he says it is all thanks to the advanced math classes they are taking provided by both the school district and E3 Alliance. "E3 Alliance has been giving children opportunities to excel, to advance," he said. E3 Alliance is a data driving education group that has partnered with 15 districts to work towards creating the strongest educational pipeline in the country to benefit students.    (27) view article  arw

1836 Project promotes sanitized version of Texas history, experts say

September 2705:00 AM
 

A committee charged with producing a “patriotic” telling of Texas history approved a 15-page pamphlet last month that will now be distributed to new Texas drivers. The advisory committee — named the 1836 Project after the year Texas gained its independence from Mexico — was created last year with the passing of House Bill 2497. The legislation required the committee to tell a story of “a legacy of economic prosperity” and the “abundant opportunities for businesses and families, among other requirements.” “We must never forget why Texas became so exceptional in the first place,” Gov. Greg Abbott said when he signed the bill. Abbott, along with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and House Speaker Dade Phelan, later selected a nine-member, largely conservative group to head the 1836 Project.    (27) view article  arw

Frisco ISD reviewing 1 million books to find ‘obscene’ ones

September 2608:40 AM
 

FRISCO, Texas — More schools across the state are pulling books from their libraries. Recently, state Rep. Jared Patterson, R-Frisco, formally challenged 28 books at Frisco ISD. “We’re not talking about innuendo or thought-provoking literature. We’re not talking about a sex education class where you’re promoting safe sex or anything like that,” Patterson said. “We’re talking about raunchy, explicit. We’re talking about every possible detail of sexual encounter. We’re talking about graphic, close-up illustrations of various forms of sex. And we know that pornography is harmful to the brain of young people.” Frisco ISD has removed 10 books, per its website. Only one of those is from Rep. Patterson’s list. He is not pleased with the progress Frisco ISD is making with his concerns.    (27) view article  arw

Hurricane Ian puts part of Florida’s west coast under hurricane watch, including Tampa Bay

September 2605:00 AM
 

Hurricane Ian formed early Monday, triggering a hurricane watch for Florida’s west coast from north of Englewood to the Anclote River, including Tampa Bay. As of 5 a.m. Monday, Ian was closing in on Grand Cayman and Cuba with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph, making it a Category 1 storm. Ian was 90 miles southwest of Grand Cayman and 315 miles southeast of the western tip of Cuba. Both Cuba and Grand Cayman are under hurricane warnings. The National Hurricane Center said Ian is forecast to rapidly into a major hurricane by Tuesday, meaning Category 3 or above. If it were to reach major hurricane status, it would be the season’s second major Atlantic hurricane. Fiona, which dissipated Sunday as a remnant low, was 2022′s first major hurricane. Experts predict Ian’s maximum sustained winds could ultimately reach up to 140 mph this week, which would make it a Category 4 hurricane. Most of Florida continued to brace for the uncertain path of the intensifying storm. view article  arw

College Station:  CSISD expands School Resource Deputy program to nine officers

September 2708:35 AM
 

ollege Station school board members voted unanimously to expand its School Resource Deputy program to include two deputies who will be assigned to the elementary and intermediate campuses. The expansion is reflected in an amendment in the district’s five-year interlocal agreement with the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office, which provides the school resource deputies in the district. The amendment increases the number from seven to nine deputies. The district currently has an assigned school resource deputy at each middle school and high school with one “rover,” who does not have an assigned school. The two new school resource deputies will be considered “rovers” as well, but specifically to provide support at the district’s elementary and intermediate school campuses. Chief Administrative Officer Molley Perry told the board during the Sept. 20 meeting, “While they will have a home base and an office, they will be serving our intermediate and elementary campuses districtwide.” view article  arw

Texas Ballot Battleground: Public Schools

September 2708:35 AM
 

The Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) was going to revise the social studies curriculum across the state, giving teachers a clear picture of how U.S. history and social studies will be taught in K–12 public schools. This happens every ten years. Yet there was a lot of pushbacks on certain proposals and, to sort through the complexity of the issues, the State Board of Education decided to postpone revisions until the year 2025. 320-x-50-Auto-Loan-Fall-2022 Last year, Texas passed a bill that banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory from public K-12 schools. The bill prohibited any teaching that, “one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex; (an individual, by virtue of the individual ’s race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously; an individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment solely or partly because of the individual ’s race or sex; an individual ’s moral character, standing, or worth is necessarily determined by the individual ’s race or sex.” view article  arw

AISD looks to fill teaching positions with added incentives

PAST STORY: Austin ISD works to fill over 200 open positions “There have been changes due to, of course, teacher resignations,” said Norma Castillo, assistant superintendent of human capital systems at Austin ISD. The district said finding teachers can be a challenge, but it made some changes that will hopefully make a difference. “July 18 we added a few incentives, and then here towards the beginning of August we added even more,” said Castillo. view article  arw

Katy ISD now requires parent permission for secondary students to check out classroom library books

September 2708:30 AM
 

Katy ISD parents must now formally agree to let their secondary school students check out books from classroom libraries and will be automatically notified when their children check out any school library books under a new policy adopted by the school board Monday night. Trustees also struck down a provision that would have allowed students over 18 with parental consent to be on committees that determine whether challenged books remain in school libraries. Most board members expressed their fears that those students, though legally adults, may be harmed by reading challenged resources. “I am absolutely opposed to students being on the committee,” board member Rebecca Fox said during Monday’s meeting. “While our students are still our students, we still call them children … I don't want to be a part of any decision that puts those students at risk under what the penal code says.” view article  arw

Are school closures to blame for big decline in test results?

September 2708:30 AM
 

Amid the usual school supply shopping, classroom decorating and meet the teacher nights, this year’s return to school has been marked by uncertainty and anxiety. Scores of unfilled jobs and more than three-quarters of teachers seriously considering quitting have undercut the usual excitement after more than two tough years since the start of the pandemic. So, when this year’s results from a national assessment of 9-year-olds’ reading and math performance showed markedly lower scores than decades past, it was yet another demoralizing indicator of how the pandemic has affected our education system. School closures immediately took the blame. view article  arw

As inflation skyrockets, local Texas governments ponder tax rate increases as they balance budgets

September 2708:30 AM
 

Local governments in Texas have spent the summer preparing their budgets for next year, wrestling with inflation and a law that prohibits them from raising property tax revenues beyond 3.5% without voter approval.  Every summer, Jasper County Judge Mark Allen begins to worry about two very different storms brewing: hurricanes and his county budget.  Allen and thousands of other local government officials across Texas entered this year’s budget season facing historic rates of inflation along with severe labor shortages. Complicating the budget process, counties and other taxing bodies say they can’t raise taxes to cover the growing costs of employee salaries and raw materials because their hands are tied by public pressure and recent legislation.  “It’s a situation where local governments are having to start siphoning off their emergency reserves, or just not be able to provide services to people,” said Allen, who has been the East Texas county’s top elected official for more than 15 years. “We’re losing quality personnel to the private sector, where they go out and try to find better-paying jobs and better benefits.” view article  arw
