1st Grade Dyslexia Screener
Texas Education Code (§38.003) mandates that all first grade students be screened for dyslexia and related disorders no later than January 31, 2024. The screening is designed to ensure that all students are appropriately screened, and if necessary, are evaluated further so that reading difficulties will be addressed in a timely manner. The results from the screening will be used to guide instruction at the classroom level, shared with you, and used to determine if additional interventions are required for your student.
If you have any questions about the screening process, please contact Kelly Pieterse at 512-715-5122

Superintendent Search Input Sessions
As part of the superintendent search process, the Board of Trustees is committed to gathering the input of staff, parents, and community members to help inform the profile of the next leader of Burnet CISD. To that end, the Board of Trustees invites parents and community members to attend a superintendent search input session so that you can share the qualifications and characteristics that you believe to be the most important for the next superintendent to possess. Both of the input sessions will be facilitated by Dr. Sherri Bays, the superintendent search consultant. Dr. Bays will compile the feedback and report back to the Board of Trustees. Please see the times and locations listed below.
Superintendent Search Parent/Community Input Session #1
- Tuesday, December 5, starting at 6:00-7:00 p.m.
- Burnet CISD Board Room (Located at 208 East Brier in Burnet)
Superintendent Search Parent/Community Input Session #2
- Thursday, December 7, starting at 6:00-7:00 p.m.
- Bertram Elementary (Located at 315 Main Street in Bertram)
In addition to the in-person input sessions, the Board of Trustees will also be releasing an online superintendent search input survey. The link to the survey will be sent out on Friday, December 1. All parents and community members are encouraged to complete the survey by the close of the survey on Friday, December 22.
Finally, the projected timeline for the superintendent search has been approved by the Board and posted on the Superintendent Search webpage, and can be found at the following link: https://www.burnetcisd.net/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=460012&type=d&pREC_ID=2527778

Lockout / Secure Drill
SGE completed a lockout drill on Friday, Dec. 12th. During a lockout, everyone comes indoors, exterior doors remain locked, and business inside the building continues as usual. Lockout is called when there is a threat or hazard outside of the school building, whether violence in a nearby neighborhood or a dangerous animal on the playground.
The 12 Days of Christmas begin this week!
SGE Attendance Tracking
SGE's ADA for this past week was 94.4%.
ADA stands for Average Daily Attendance and is defined as the total days of student attendance divided by the total days of instruction. "98 IS Great!", so 98% is our goal!
