Since 2012, SBISD’s single-focused strategic goal has been Spring Branch T-2-4. This goal affirms the district’s aim for every Spring Branch ISD graduate to attain a technical certificate, military training, or a two-year or four-year degree.
Heretofore, T-2-4 has served as an aspirational goal for our students, once they complete their educational experience in SBISD. However, the system has not clearly articulated the vision for what T-2- 4 Readiness means while our students are in our system, for as many as 14 years (PK 3- Grade 12). Specifically, SBISD needs to define the attributes, skillsets, competencies and experiences our students need to develop and achieve by key transitional milestones as they matriculate through our system.
Therefore, defining The Vision of a T-2-4 Graduate at 5th Grade, 8th Grade and 12th Grade (The Vision of a T-2-4 Graduate) will be the focus of the SBISD Visioning for the Future Committee.
The Vision of a T-2-4 Graduate will complete the district’s strategic planning framework and will shape and guide the district’s strategic work to achieve T-2-4 for Every Child over the next five years (2021-2026).
The Committee is charged by the Board of Trustees with the responsibility of working collaboratively and cooperatively with the superintendent and the superintendent’s administrative designees to develop a defined vision for a T-2-4 ready graduate at the conclusion of key transition years: 5th grade, 8th grade, and 12th grade.
The Vision will provide clarity for the academic and social-emotional characteristics of an SBISD student who is prepared to achieve T-2-4. The Vision should include, but not be limited to, the attributes, skillsets, competencies and experiences students need to develop and achieve by key transitional milestones as they matriculate through our system.
The Committee is charged with beginning its work in fall 2020, with the development of a defined vision for a T-2-4 ready graduate at 5th, 8th and 12th grades to be presented to the SBISD Board of Trustees no later than February 2021.
