  • A public hearing on the 2019-2020 Texas Academic Performance Report is slated to be conducted by Jason Evans, who oversees SSISD State & Federal Programs, during the 6 p.m. meeting. The TAPR is essentially the school district report card and is always one year behind as Texas Education Agency gathers and reviews material for the report. Typically, the hearing focuses on District Accreditation, Campus Performance Objectives, information on violent or criminal incidents, the performance of previous year graduates in their first year of college based on the state board’s report. This year’s report may be a bit different as state tests were halted after spring break 2020.

  • A second public hearing regarding potentially utilizing Hazel Health telemedicine services for SSISD students is scheduled to be conducted by SSISD Assistant Superintendent Kristin Monk.

Community members are invited to attend these public hearings to receive information about both, and to ask questions or relay any comments they may have regarding the TAPR and use of telemedicine on campus.

Also on the Feb. 8 agenda, during the administrative and information reports portion of the meeting, SSISD Police Chief Glynda Chester give the required racial profiling report, presentations from Career and Technical Education organizations as part of the school’s observance of CTE Month, and a local policy manual update.
