How do we compare????? Northeast ISD prides itself in being innovative, the first to try and implement things, and having the best teachers and students. Our results on the STaR Chart show otherwise. We fall into the Developing Tech in each Key Area, not even close to the top category.
Reasons for Our Results! Size of school-1,260 students One technology specialist sharing 4 schools We are told by some to answer low so we have room to show improvement Do we really not know how to use technology?
