The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) for Lakeview Centennial 20-21

On December 3, 2021, TEA released preliminary 2020-2021 Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR).


TEA’s website states, “The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year.


Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and socioeconomic status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.” To view the .pdf TAPR for schools, districts, regions, and the state, as well as reporting guidelines, glossaries, and data downloads, visit TEA’s website.


The .html version of TAPR has been replaced by the Texas Performance Reporting System (TPRS). This reporting tool integrates state and federal reporting requirements and provides additional data points for student groups that were not previously reported in any other TEA data report. This includes STAAR performance and participation data based on remote and in- person learning in 2020-2021.


20-21 TAPR for LCHS is available via the TEA Link above.

FYI - BAD WEATHER INFORMATIONN

When bad weather breaks, rely on Garland ISD for information.


Thunderstorms, tornadoes and flash flooding

During these types of bad weather, the National Weather Service (NWS) issues a Watch or Warning. A Watch means it is possible, while a Warning means it is confirmed or currently happening.


Warnings for Garland, Rowlett or Sachse during school hours may cause a Lockout and Shelter in Place. This means no one enters or exits campuses until the NWS Warning expires. Since conditions can vary across the district, decisions are made in the best interest of all students and staff.


Snow and ice

Decisions to cancel are announced on the website, Twitter, GRS-TV and Skylert by 6 a.m. Local news stations may take longer to report it. Before canceling, we:

  • check the NWS, Texas Department of Transportation and local law enforcement agencies
  • drive around Garland, Rowlett and Sachse to determine the safety of bus routes, parking lots, major intersections, etc.
  • talk to neighboring school districts


Early dismissal is also an option, but is used as a last resort. Delayed openings are not used because of the district’s triple-staggered bus schedule.


Bad Weather Makeup Days

In the event that classes are canceled due to bad weather or other situation, district leadership will determine if or how to makeup the missed dAY.


Skylert

GISD uses the Skylert telephone notification system to alert parents and employees of school closings and other important information. This critical communication tool can notify everyone within a matter of minutes. Contact information must be updated to receive Skylert notifications.


A Day or B Day?

The block schedule calendar is set at the beginning of the year and is not altered when a day is missed due to bad weather.

For example, if the day missed was a B day, then students would return the next day to the regularly scheduled A day.

Safety and Security

  • ID Badges should worn and visible at all times. All students will receive a school ID Badge when school pictures are taken, until then students may wear last year's.


  • Visitors should report to the Secure Vestibule in the front of the school for screening.


  • It is also expected that each of us report anything that may makes our school unsafe, either by contacting the SRO Officers at LC, the counselors, the teachers, the administrators or any staff member immediately when a concern arises. If a person wishes to remain anonymous, concerns may be reported by using this Anonymous Alert Form.



  • We expect all Patriots at LC to be safe and enjoy everything about LCHS this year. Please know all of Garland ISD, LC Administration, Faculty and Staff work hard to ensure everyone in the LCHS Patriot Community stays safe each and every day.
