Notification to First Grade Parents

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Texas Education Code (§38.003) mandates that all first grade students be screened for dyslexia and related disorders no later than January 31, 2023. The screening is designed to ensure that all students are appropriately screened, and if necessary, are evaluated further so that reading difficulties will be addressed in a timely manner. The results from the screening will be used to guide instruction at the classroom level, shared with you, and used to determine if additional interventions are required for your student.

If you have any questions about the screening process, please contact Cole Davis, Ph.D. at 512-715-5107.

Thank you,

Burnet Consolidated Independent School District

ADA - STRIVE for 95, but 98 is GRRRRRRREAT!

Big picture

Our ADA jumped up 2% this past week!!! And to top it off, we had the highest ADA out of all the Burnet CISD campuses last week! Way to go! We almost hit 95%!

ADA stands for Average Daily Attendance. Average Daily Attendance is defined as the total days of student attendance divided by the total days of instruction. Check out SGE's ADA trends in the chart above.

We're going to "STRIVE FOR 95!" while also knowing that "98 IS Great!" We recognize that illnesses and events take place that necesitate absences, however, we do encourage every student to be in school every day he/she is able. Let's work for 98%!

Progress Reports posted this week! View your child's! Directions below!
