Eagle Ford: District aims for STAAR
STOCKDALE -- The Stockdale Independent School District (ISD) board has set an 80 percent approval rate for students taking the required STAAR [State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness] that began during the 2011-12 school year. The district’s board of trustees heard this performance objective during the Dec. 10 regular board meeting.
According to Stockdale ISD Program and Testing Coordinator Roxanne Seidel after the meeting, the assessment report was one of three educational programs discussed, with two related to the No Child Left Behind Act.
Seidel said the board was notified that all campuses in the district received “100-percent highly qualified reports” in the district’s 2012-13 Highly Qualified Teachers Summary report. The public report is due by Dec. 15 per the No Child Left Behind Act, she said.
Also related to the No Child Left Behind Act was the adoption of the single program for the Performance-Based Monitoring System. Seidel said the board adopted special education as the focus for the district’s single program area.
Stockdale ISD Business Manager Becky Stewart also reported after the meeting that the board rescinded its adoption of the District Improvement Plan. This was adopted at its August meeting, but was rescinded due to a policy review held during the December meeting. The Texas Association of School Boards suggested the change that will allow each campus to make needed changes on its campus without first approaching the board.
Stewart said the board withdrew into executive session briefly. After reconvening, the board approved advertising for a second time the sale of the former Head Start building, located at 505 Ninth St. in Stockdale. No bids were submitted for the 0.56-acre lot located within the city limits. The board has also lowered the bid requirement, Stewart said.
