TxVAAS Roster Verification

Rosters have been created for the 2015-2016 school year for all of your teachers. We are beginning the roster verification process for the 2015-2016 school year. Teachers and school administrators will log in to their TxVAAS accounts to view their rosters and make changes as needed. There are four phases to the roster verification process:

  • Preview Phase April 4th - April 15th This phase is for school adminis and district admins to prepare for teachers. We are currently working on teacher rosters for you.

  • Teacher Phase April 16th - May 13th This phase is for teachers to verify their rosters

  • School Verification May 14th - May 27th This phase is for school admins to verify all teacher rosters.

  • District Verification May 28th - June 14th This is the final phase for the district admins to investigate and verify all rosters for each school.

Math Numeracy K-2

Any K-2nd teachers who have consistently used the Math Numeracy training you attended in October? Christy Strayhorn is looking for teachers to help integrate Numeracy lessons in the scope and sequence, but you must have experience using these lessons as well as the working knowledge on how these correspond to GoMath.

Send your feedback via email to Christy.

Elementary Programs of Choice


This Thursday is the first evening parent meeting for the new Elementary Programs of Choice at 6 pm at BHS. The second meeting is Monday, April 18th at 6pm at CHS. As parents learn more about these programs and the options available for their children, they may come to you with questions or rumored perceptions. Please respond in a supportive and positive manner. Hajek will continue to "do what we do" and offer all the wonderful things that we have and want for our kids. Encourage parents to attend one of the meetings to learn more about these programs.
