COYLE TECH - TRUST IN SCHOOLS SURVEY (STUDENTS AND STAFF ONLY)
At Coyle Technology Center for Math and Science, our mission is to empower our diverse student population to have a voice in what and how they learn through authentic and interdisciplinary learning experiences within a team. By engaging students in an inquiry-based approach to STEM that is relevant and reflective of the needs of their community and global society, our students become innovative thinkers, solvers of complex problems, teamers, and self-advocates.
We believe that to create those authentic, interdisciplinary learning experiences for our students to achieve academic, social, and behavioral success, the members of our school community must learn and live out a culture of trust, confidence, positivity and collegiality. We use the Coyle Tech School Culture Dashboard to assess and measure data points of interest to help us identify areas of success and growth to ensure our school community thrives under the new school design.
Students and Staff, please click the "Coyle Tech - Trust in Schools" survey button below to let us know how we are doing with meeting your needs in our school community. You must be logged into your GISD credentials to access the survey. Please compete the survey by the deadline of Wednesday, December 14, 2022. In addition we will utilize this data as we engage in positive culture-building dialogue (Conversations and Coffee with the Principal, Student Advisory Committee, and Grade-level Meetings) during the 2nd semester.
Our destination is an A! We are actively pursuing an A-rating on our 2022-23 School Report Card and Accountability Report! I ask that our school community actively engage and partner with us in this endeavor!
We have almost completed our first semester of the 2022-23 school year! Man, it has flown by very fast! We still have 7 more days until the winter break, so don’t let your student(s) take the pedal off of the gas! We have STAAR Interim testing going on campus and many will have semester exams next week as well. Teaching and learning will be happening at Coyle until we dismiss students next Friday, December 17, 2022 at 2:05 pm.
Starting next January, we will begin efforts to increase parent and family engagement with the school by hosting “Conversations and Coffee with the Principal”. There will be 2 sessions each month, starting Friday, January 6, 2023 from 8:30 am to 9:30 am. We have a desire to provide all parents and families access to our school operations, as well as create partnerships with families to discuss ways to improve the overall operations of our school community.
Families, community members, and staff are encouraged to attend these critical conversations. Click the button below to let us know what session(s) you will attend.
TELPAS RESOURCES FOR FAMILIES
TELPAS TESTING WINDOW OPENS FEBRUARY 20 2023
Students in grades K-12 that have been identified as an EL (English Learner) are required to take TELPAS. This includes ELs whose parents have declined bilingual or English as a Second Language (ESL) program services.
What does the results tell you about your student?
TELPAS uses four proficiency ratings—Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced, and Advanced High—to show the progress students make in learning English from year to year. For students to reach their full academic potential, it is important for them to make steady progress in learning English. Your child’s proficiency ratings in listening, speaking, reading, and writing will give you a good idea about the progress he or she is making. Students who do not make steady progress may require additional assistance at school.
