COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The College Station ISD Board of Trustees met Tuesday, October 15.  The following discussions and actions are of note.

WORKSHOP

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) discussion:  Chief Administrative Officer Molley Perry gave a presentation regarding the district’s new MAP software, which is a computer-based assessment system that measures skill mastery for all students.  

Using online testing three times a year, the software shows faculty and administrators where students are in comparison to their peers and allows teachers to target instruction for individual students and groups of students.  In addition, the data from the MAP software can be used as metrics in the CSISD community-based accountability system.

PUBLIC FORUM

FIRST Report:  CSISD received a 98 out of 100 possible points and a superior rating in the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) for the 2017-18 school year.  The purpose of the financial accountability rating system (Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Title 19, § 109.1001) is to ensure that school districts and open-enrollment charter schools will be held accountable for the quality of their financial management practices and achieve improved performance in the management of their financial resources.

REGULAR MEETING

Approval to assume contract to purchase property:  The board approved a resolution to assume a contract to purchase 41.40 acres located at 2441 Arrington Road.  The total cost of $2,556,450 will be paid from 2015 bond funds designated specifically for the purchase of land.
