Pasadena ISD Shares Community and Student Engagement Results

Pasadena Independent School District recently released information regarding a districtwide evaluation of community and student engagement and the results speak for themselves. 

The Texas Education Agency required all school districts to evaluate overall district performance and the performance of each campus in regard to community and student engagement under House Bill 5, passed last year by the 83rd Texas Legislature.

A local committee sought input from the Education Foundation Board, District Education Committee, District Advisory Council and Student Health Advisory Committee to determine the criteria that were used. In the area of student engagement, campuses submitted activities like musical performances, college and career events, participation in UIL, Fitnessgram and much more. 

Each campus was evaluated in the following categories:

Fine arts;
Wellness and physical education;
Community and parental involvement;
21st Century Workforce Development programs;
Second language acquisition programs;
Digital learning environment;
Dropout prevention strategies and
Education programs for gifted and talented students. 

Of the 58 Pasadena ISD campuses evaluated, all were in compliance for state regulations, most receiving recognized or exemplary scores in the various categories. To receive an overall exemplary rating, campuses must demonstrate high levels of achievement in the majority of individual categories as set by the local committee.
