thoughtfulwordsMidlothian ISD parents are encouraged to complete an anonymous online survey to share their perceptions and input regarding MISD. Part of the 83rd Texas Legislature House Bill 5 requires all districts to evaluate the district and individual campus’ performance based on community and student engagement. This bill allows school districts to showcase areas of excellence and success outside the limited scope of standardized test scores. It is also an opportunity for staff to recognize areas that need improvement in the future and to celebrate the good things happening in our school.

The nine factors evaluated include fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, 21st century workforce development program, second language acquisition program, digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies, educational programs for GT students and compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements. All school districts and campuses are required to assign a performance rating of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable for overall performance.

Wednesday Wrapups…

Our Miller Bell news staff received a special visit today from our own mayor, mayorvisitMr. Bill Houston.  The students were abuzz to interview him on “hot topics” around the town for an upcoming edition of The Miller Bell (in a week).  Be watching for their article and his responses to their challenging questions.

In other news today, congratulations go out to our own music teacher, Ms. Amber Grant, who recently graduated with her Masters of Music degree!  We are proud of you, Ms. Grant!

We practiced our Shelter-in-Place response this morning.  With our thoughts weighing so heavily for our Oklahoma friends and families, this is especially important as we learn better strategies and actions for this type of crisis response.  I am pleased to report everyone did a wonderful job by acting swiftly and appropriately throughout the process.  Continued reminders and practice are critical to knowing what and how to react in a real emergency situation.

Finally, if you haven’t taken a moment to complete our LME parent survey for this year, please do so.  We value your input, your suggestions, and your perspective for future improvements.  Thanks for taking valuable time to provide this important feedback!

It’s a Monday on a Wednesday of a short week for us here…With only 11 days to go now, you need to catch your breath to believe it!  Stay safe!  🙂
