We expect all staff to receive ESL (English as a Second Language) certification and 100% completed. Classroom teachers are required to complete 30 hours of GT training. We continue to participate in the Texas Reading Academy to ensure that our kindergarten through third grade teachers, administrators, reading interventionists, and special education teachers have the required training.
We have a diverse population with a variety of avenues and resources to support student needs. Our staff is certified in grade level content areas. Our identification process for GT and SPED are showing that we are improving and growing towards a more equitable ratio in populations.
