Board of Trustees Regular Meeting Agenda

Board Agenda >>

Consume, Critique, Produce

Spring Branch ISD Trustees heard about the Consume, Critique and Produce (CCP) pilot project taking place at seven elementary schools around the district. A proven model that promotes in-depth learning and true collaboration, CCP provides strategies and resources for students to become more independent with their thinking and learning, serving all kinds of students and providing collaboration through the residency model.

IR School Public Hearings

Trustees also conducted a public hearing on required progress reports from Landrum Middle School and Northbrook Middle School, both in Year 2 of Improvement Required (IR) status under the Texas Accountability Intervention System (TAIS). Both Landrum and Northbrook middle schools hit target indices in Year 1 of IR, meaning a reconstitution/turnaround plan won’t be implemented if target indices are hit again this year in Year 2 of IR. Trustees also approved targeted improvement plans for Terrace, Treasure Forest and Woodview elementaries, in Year 1 of IR under TAIS.

Board President Chris Vierra reported that Trustees were current in required board member training for 2015. A report will be entered into the Dec. 14 meeting minutes.
