2018 - 2019 Instructional Software Guidelines
Dear Falcon Family, SST Advancement provides many curriculum and supporting software programs to help our students enrich their learning and master their skills. To assist your child and follow up their assignments, please use this guide.
A new school year begins, and we can think of no better way to begin the year than to share an amazing announcement made by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) on August 15, 2018. On that date TEA released the accountability ratings for traditional school districts and charter districts. Of more than 1200 Texas districts only 153 received the top rating under the new A-F assessment system. Both SST districts, which includes all SST campuses, received the top rating of A.
TEA Commission Mike Morath commended high performing districts and said, ““Achieving an A rating reflects the hard work and commitment of everyone within a school district, starting with our classroom teachers. We should all celebrate the outstanding work of these dedicated educators.” Commissioner Morath went on to say, “Districts with high levels of poverty who attain this high level of performance are proof positive that poverty is not destiny. With strong instruction and curriculum, all students can succeed.”
Certainly, we commend our teachers and each one of our staff who contributed to this high achievement, and we commend you and all SST parents. It takes all of us working together to achieve such outstanding results. SST parents have worked alongside us to create a positive and accelerated learning environment to prepare students for the demands of the 21st century.
As we look forward to the 2018-2019 school year, we celebrate the A rating of SST by TEA, and we look ahead to the challenges. To meet those challenges and ensure the best education possible, educators, students and parents must continue to work together as an SST family. It’s been true each and every year at SST, and this school year will be no different. We thank you for your commitment to your children as well as to SST educators and staff.
By working together, there is nothing our students cannot achieve. read more . . .
