Seguin ISD to hold regular meeting, public hearing
Posted on 1/23/2018 7:48:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- The Seguin ISD will get a progress report on its partnership with Communities in School of South Central Texas. The report will be provided by the program's site coordinators during tonight's regular meeting of the Seguin ISD Board of Trustees.
 
District officials say the report will address the benefits of the program following the first semester.
 
The district approved a contract with the program to "provide integrated support services to
students who are at-risk or low-income and needing additional supports
to stay in school and achieve in life."
 
The two CIS site coordinators are currently serving the needs of students at Seguin High School. The school board tonight will also consider approving a resolution identifying the Seguin ISD as a District of Innovation. Recent legislation provides an opportunity for Texas public school districts to modify state requirements at the "local level to better meet the needs of their unique student populations."
 
District officials say as a District of Innovation, Seguin ISD will be able to implement the work of their SISD Strategic Plan with the
increased flexibility and freedom necessary to be innovative with the kinds of learning experiences afforded
to our students. They say "making important educational decisions at the local level is the most effective way to support the innovation plans in our district."
 
The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. today in the Seguin ISD Board Room located inside of Oak Park Mall. Prior to its regular meeting, the district will host a public hearing on its 2016-2017 Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR). Other items to be shared include the district's PEIMS Financial Standard Report, District Accreditation Status, report on Violent or Criminal Incidents, and a report from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board on Student Performance in Post-Secondary Institutions. The hearing is a requirement by the state for all Texas school districts.
