Parent Update

Parents and Students,

Wow! I cannot believe we have started the second six weeks. Please make sure your child is checking their grades and talking to their teachers about what is needed for them to be successful. The students are doing a great job getting into tutorials, but that needs to continue. Remember, we are a team and must work together to ensure that your child is SUCCESSFUL! If your child is struggling, please make sure to set up a parent conference so that we can determine how to better meet your child’s needs.

House Bill 4545 - What is it? How will BHI help my student?

What is HB4545 in a nutshell:

-The state’s way of attempting to get students caught up and close the gaps in education caused by a year and a half of interrupted instruction.

-Each student is required to receive 30 hours of additional instruction/tutorials for each STAAR test they failed or did not take.

How will BHI complete intervention and tutorials?

Intervention Schedule:

Two times a week (Tues/Wed) we will run our “Intervention Schedule”. Students that failed a STAAR test will be assigned to a math or reading class to receive extra instruction that will be counted towards their 30 hours. Students not assigned a math/reading class will be drafted to other classes.

Morning Tutorials:

When a student spends time with a teacher for added instruction in the morning…that can count towards the 30 hours.

Extended Day:

BHI will be offering extended day multiple times a week in multiple subjects. These extended days should target HB4545 students or students that have an academic need in a subject area. Bus transportation will be offered.

Saturday School:

Multiple times throughout the year, BHI will be offering Saturday school from 9-12. These will be 3 hour sessions targeting students that need extra learning/tutorials. Pizza will be provided

Dates for Saturday School: 10/16, 11/13, 12/11, 1/22, 3/5, 4/2, 4/30
