  1. Every year we all participate in a process that allows our teachers, administrators and students to have access to 21st century technology. Because the government supplements our funding, it is critical that we all understand how vital our individual, campus and administration's commitment is to this process.
  2. Thanks to the data provided by you, we can assess if our school is progressing, static, or regressing. The good news is that is 3 out of four areas, our school has made great strides in achieving a status of Advanced Tech. However, it also reveals that we have made a linear move in the category of “Educator Preparation.” This allows us to set our goals for next year and address areas of deficiency.
  3. As you can see from the information provided by AISD’s Improvement Plan, Educator Preparation is a recognized area of improvement as well as providing technology and increasing technology competency of 8th grade students. Next year we hope to see improvement in all four areas addressed – especially to our teachers.
  4. With ever evolving technology applications, we will continue to participate in the E-Rate program to allow access to the most current and relevant technology available to our staff and students and remain competitive and current in the education arena. We thank you so very much for your continued service and dedication.
