As an initiative of the Strategic Planning Process, Burnet CISD is excited to unveil Staff Shout Outs! Have you experienced great customer service from a Burnet CISD employee? Has a Burnet CISD co-worker gone the extra mile in supporting you in some way? If so, we want to hear about it! A Shout Out is a special recognition that acknowledges a District staff member who has demonstrated a special effort, an outstanding job, caring customer service, a project of high-quality workmanship, a team mentality, and/or is helping students CRAFT the FUTURE. Anyone can submit a Staff Shout Out recognizing one of our outstanding staff members. The Staff Shout Out form can be found at the following link:

Shout Outs!

Staff Shouts Outs will be posted online and shared with staff each week.

Lost & Found

Our Lost & Found collection is enormous! It's filled with jackets, hoodies, mittens, and water bottles. When we find a lost item that is labeled with a name, finding the owner is easy! Most of our Lost & Found items are nameless!

If you think your student misplaced his/her coat at school, have him check our Lost & Found.

The Lost & Found items are in our foyer and will remain there on the day of our Valentine parties. If you plan to attend, be sure to look through it!

Unclaimed items will be donated on the week of Spring Break.

ADA - STRIVE for 95, but 98 is GRRRRRRREAT!

Big picture

ADA stands for Average Daily Attendance. Average Daily Attendance is defined as the total days of student attendance divided by the total days of instruction. Check out SGE's ADA trends in the chart above.

We're going to "STRIVE FOR 95!" while also knowing that "98 IS Great!" We recognize that illnesses and events take place that necesitate absences, however, we do encourage every student to be in school every day he/she is able. Let's work for 98%!
