I hope you’ve all had a great first few weeks back at school. We’ve been anxiously awaiting your return and diligently preparing for the year ahead.
There are many initiatives planned for our District and campuses that will inspire learning and innovation.
Enrollment at our schools is promising and feedback has been positive. We are proud to begin district wide Dual Language for pre-K and kindergarten. We know that this way of learning will better prepare our students for their futures and promote global citizenship.
The curriculum audit is nearly completed. Reviewing and implementing the recommendations will take priority this year as we use the information to reshape and update instructional programs and improve curriculum.
Soon, we will rollout our digital textbooks. In just a few weeks, science teachers at Chapin High School will incorporate the texts into instruction. By next semester, all Chapin science students will replace paper books with digital texts. This has been made possible with the collaboration of the CK-12 Foundation. You’ll hear more about them in the near future. This is 21st Century Learning at its best.
I look forward to sharing more throughout the year. We are well on our way to making EPISD the District of choice!
