Miller Memo

August 31, 2021 Edition

The 2021 - 2022 school year is off to a great start at Miller Career and Technology Center (MCTC)! Our staff has enjoyed welcoming our returning students and getting to know our new students. We hope you have settled into a routine at MCTC and are excited about the real-world experiences we have to offer. Please read below for a few updates and reminders.

Student IDs

As of now, all students should have received their new student IDs from their home campuses. At Miller Career and Technology Center, we require students to wear them visibly while in the building. If a student needs a lanyard or ID sleeve, we have those available in our Upstairs AP Office.

Student Drivers

Beginning this week, all students who drive to Miller will need to have their MCTC parking permits displayed visibly in the vehicle being driven. Parking permits are $5.00. As a reminder: Student parking is located in the Rhodes Stadium Lot on the south (right-hand) side as per the Parking Guidelines. Please do not park in the front entry parking lot or in the parking area near the STEAM Center.

If you still need to secure a parking permit, please have the following ready-to-go:

  • A photo of your driver’s license ready for upload.
  • A photo or PDF of your vehicle insurance ready for upload.
  • Submit the $5 fee through Pay N’Go
  • Complete the Parking Permit request or use QR Code
  • The Confirmation Number received through Pay N’Go is required on the Google form

Open House

Please join us next Thursday, September 9, 2021 for our MCTC Open House. During the evening, parents will follow their child's daily schedule at Miller. Your arrival and departure time for the night will depend on which periods your child attends MCTC. Please see the attachment below for detailed information and a schedule overview. You can print this out to bring with you.

Also below is a satellite map of our campus. We ask parents to park in the Visitor side of the Rhodes Stadium parking lot (outlined in green). We look forward to seeing you!

Dress Code

At Miller Career and Technology Center, we work to model and practice professionalism on a daily basis as part of career-readiness. At minimum, our programs follow the Katy ISD Code of Conduct, including the outlined dress code. This includes tank tops or blouses that expose the midriff, pants or slacks with holes or tears above mid-thigh, pajama pants, and hats, caps, and bandanas.

Additionally, some of our programs require specific industry dress on a daily basis or during lab time.

Skills USA

Skills USA is one of the student organizations hosted at MCTC. It partners students, teachers, and industry professionals together, with the goal of ensuring that America has a skilled workforce. Through Skills USA, students are able to build their leadership skills and participate in a variety of competitions at the local, state, and potentially national level. Last year, our Skills USA team had 33 students advance to state contest, 12 place in the top 3 at state, and 2 earn National championship honors!

All of our CTE program students, with the exception of Clinical Rotations, EMT, Pharmacology, and Dental, can be members of Skills USA. Students who were unable to attend the 1st interest meeting last Friday can still get information by clicking on the link below and filling out the Google form.

COVID Self-Reporting App

The District’s online COVID-19 Reporting System allows staff, students, and parents to self-report if they have received a COVID-19 positive test result. The self-reporting system enables the District’s Emergency Operations Management team to conduct contact tracing, as well as call and notify individuals in Katy ISD buildings who may have been directly exposed to the person.
