Calhoun County ISD Celebrating Texas Public School Week March 5 – 9
Posted on 02/28/2018

Great things are happening in Texas public schools!

Texas public schools bring top quality education to more than four million students. Talented educators, caring staff members and rewarding learning experiences set a strong foundation for our students’ successes and achievements, which is truly something worth celebrating. And that’s why every year in March, school districts throughout the state join the campaign to Celebrate Texas Public Schools.

This year’s Celebrate Texas Public Schools Week theme is “Texas public schools… the clear choice for education.

This year’s theme focuses on the word “choice,” because we know how important it is to parents to provide a high quality education for their families. And we acknowledge that families have options when choosing the best education agency for their children. At Calhoun County ISD, we are proud to be a Texas Public School and look forward to showcasing examples of why we believe we are the clear choice for education.

Calhoun County ISD works diligently to maintain our community’s confidence in our public school system. We have highly-qualified educators on staff who love children and work day in and day out to provide relevant and hands-on learning experiences that prepare students to reach their full-potential. In terms of academic accountability, all Calhoun County ISD campuses meet state standards and many campuses have recently received special distinction designation awards. Calhoun County ISD proudly offers award-winning extracurricular programs and a Career and Technical Education program that trains and certifies students for careers in high demand.

Parent involvement and community support are critical for the success of young people. At Calhoun County ISD, we value our many partners in education. We have a growing number of community volunteers who mentor and tutor students who are navigating through the challenges of their youth. Also, representatives from area employers regularly visit classrooms to help students explore the variety of careers in high demand. Grant support from local business partners support a robotics program, floating classroom, outdoor wetlands, instructional supplies and the Texas Scholars program. A generous Education Foundation supports students and teachers in a variety of ways.

Calhoun County ISD provides the tools, framework and solid foundation that is vital towards the future of our children.

The choice for education is clear. This week, and every week, please join us as we celebrate all the good that is going on at Calhoun County ISD.
