Academic Services & Programs Indicators

CORE COMMITMENT:  CSISD will ...provide an array of services, programs and opportunities to meet the needs of each student, and provide the opportunity for each student to reach his or her full potential.

Background:  CSISD provides a number of services programs and other opportunities to meet the unique needs of students.  House Bill 5 (83rd Texas Legislature) mandated assessment in some of these areas below.  For each area, you will find a brief description of the program and what CSISD provides that exceeds state law or other districts.  

 

Fine Arts (HB5): With the exception of the fine arts elective that is mandated under the graduation plans for our current high school students, fine arts are not mandated by the education code.  Nevertheless, CSISD campuses provide many fine arts opportunities for students at all levels.  Elementary students rotate through art and music every week with teachers who are specialists in art and music, not simply classroom teachers.  Intermediate students’ elective rotations include art, music and drama.  Fifth graders have the option of orchestra, and sixth graders can choose orchestra, choir or band for the entire school year.  Middle school students can choose electives in art, choir, band or orchestra.  High school students have all of the other options plus theatre arts, and dance classes.

21st Century Workforce Development (HB5): CSISD believes that it is vitally important to prepare students for the workforce whether our graduates plan to go straight to work, or to college first.  These workforce skills give our graduates the ability to earn money even while pursuing other education opportunities.  Our career and technology education department offers numerous career training options in all five endorsement areas of House Bill 5.  Many of these career pathways culminate in the opportunity for a certification that can lead right into gainful employment after high school.

Dropout Prevention (HB5):  CSISD is committed to graduating all students no matter if they have been in our district since Kindergarten, moved in during middle school, or re-enrolled after dropping out earlier in their school career.  We have number of processes in place to help kids stay in school.  Campuses provide remediation in courses, accelerated instruction where students have struggled and credit recovery for students who have failed one or more classes at the semester.  

 

Students behind on credits can participate in summer school, credit by exam and night school.  Timber Academy High School was designed as school for students who are in danger of dropping out or have dropped out previously.  Over 89% of Timber students were 17 years old or older on September 1st this year.  This currently qualifies Timber as a Dropout Recovery School by the Texas Education Agency.

Digital Learning Environment (HB5):  CSISD believes that our students must not only have access to technology, but must become fluent in a number of technologies to be successful in college or a career.  To help accomplish this, each CSISD classroom has access to student computers, and all instructional spaces have a SMART device: SMART board or Sympodium.    We have a wireless overlay of our facilities that makes our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative possible.  We don't ban smart phones, we encourage their use to aid instruction. High school students have the opportunity to participate in a number of high tech computer and CTE. Beginning a year ago, CSISD developed Success 24/7, a on line learning support portal.  This site gives many high school students access to their teachers' lessons, supporting materials, videos, and assignments.  Students in these classes get to access their learning anytime, anywhere (with a WiFi connection).
