The basics that students will need daily are a backpack to host the Chromebook, earbuds, notebook paper and pens/pencils.
Please review the uniform expectations. To summarize, we expect student attire to be modest and not a distraction.

The schedule is as follows:
3:00pm - Class of 2027 (freshmen)
4:15pm - 6:00pm Class of 2023 - 2026 (sophomores, juniors, seniors)

Virtual Parent Meeting w/ Principal
This check-in time is an opportunity to hear some updates. Parents will be provided time to ask questions in order to promote clarity for all as we prepare for a new school year.
Freshmen Student Orientation - Friday, August 11, 2023
The purpose of this day camp is to assist freshmen with making peer connections and getting acclimated to the campus, as well as the downtown area.
There will be various team-building activities for students.
The goal is for students to leave excited and feeling more comfortable with their new school.
The camp runs from 9am - 3:00pm
Freshmen parents are asked to drop-off their child and return at 3pm to join their student at the Learning Staircase. We will have some brief announcements for freshmen parents and you will then be able to "Meet the CAST!"
SAISD runs bus routes within their school district boundaries. For in-district families, enter your address for pick-up details. Out of district families may drop-off their child at a district site to catch a bus to/from the Fox Tech campus.
Learning Management System
Canvas is our Learning Management System. It will house all the assignments and learning activities.
The first week of school we will issue a chrome book to each student.
Since CAST Tech is part of SAISD, breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge to students.
