Our second goal was to increase student attendance from 95.9% to 98%, and while we still have a ways to go, the amount of work that has been done on this has been impressive. Below you can see a comparison of the attendance rate over the last few years, it should be noted that not only has campus attendance increased, but every grade level has increased their attendance this year, and this is only possible with your hard work. We are going to add almost $30,00 to our budget and this will support addition programs and teaching assistants to lower the students teacher ratio.
All of goals align with IBphilosphyIB expos and their successRigorous and safe curriculum aligns with HISD positioning statement POSITIONING STATEMENTEvery child in our district deserves to attend a safe school and receive a consistently rigorous, quality education.This is one thing that you will notice as you look from last year to this year we tried to keep the focus on the campus the same.
serving over 750 kids and two years ago we were in the low 600’s
