Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Our first attempt at a Science Night was a wonderful success! I didn't get an exact head count but I do know that we handed out 80+ exploration journals to kids. Every station was busy with kids & adults gathered round exploring and having fun. Thank you for making it happen!

Deadline Extended...2015 Early Resignation Notice Incentive/Perfect Attendance Incentive

In order to assist campuses with planning for the 2015-16 school year, Keller ISD is again offering an Early Resignation Notification Incentive of $750 to the first 100 teachers and other professional instructional staff such as counselors, librarians, diagnosticians, LSSP, nurses, etc. who submit a resignation/retirement letter to their campus principal by March 31, 2015. This early notification will help principals determine staffing and recruitment needs for next year. In addition, teachers who submit their letter by March 18, 2015 will receive an additional $250 for perfect attendance from April 1 through the end of the school year. To be eligible, the employee must be on a probationary, term or continuing contract. This information is in DWW on February 25th. In order to coordinate this well, principals, you need to ensure that you note a "received by" date on each resignation you receive and scan it to:
