Make-Up Day for Loss of Instruction Time

Attention Parents and Students:

House Bill (HB) 2610, passed by the 84th Texas Legislature, amends Texas Education Code (TEC), §25.081, by striking language requiring 180 days of instruction and replacing this language with language requiring districts and charter schools to provide at least 75,600 minutes of instruction, including intermissions and recess. The bill also allows school districts and charter schools to add minutes as necessary to compensate for minutes of instruction lost due to school closures caused by disaster, flood, extreme weather conditions, fuel curtailment, or another calamity.

In reviewing our records for the required 75,600 minutes for school, we find we are short 470 minutes to meet that requirement. May 18th, 2018 is a scheduled Tutorial/Attendance day. We will be using this day as our make-up day for the loss of the 470 minutes of instruction.

Friday, May18th will be a regular school day for all students.

National School Counseling Week, “School Counseling: The Recipe for Success" is  celebrated from Feb. 4-8 , 2019, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.

New State "Open Carry" Gun Law

The new state gun law, HB910, allowing licensed handgun owners to carry a handgun in an open manner, as long as the handgun is secured in a shoulder or belt holster, went into effect January 1.  So what does the implementation of this new law mean for schools and the overall safety of our students? First and foremost, both federal and state law prohibit citizens, including handgun license holders, from carrying firearms on the physical premises of a school building, including any grounds or building where school activity is taking place or on a school bus or other school passenger vehicle.

Waivers, general permits, and temporary credentials to do not count toward the “highly-qualified” rating.

Teachers must be “highly-qualified” in their core teaching areas that include the following subjects:  English, Language Arts/Reading, Mathematics, Science, Foreign Languages, Civics and Government, Economics, History, Geography, Arts.
