  • Community Feedback Desired on Turnaround Plan

    Nathaniel Q Henderson ES has been rated as an Improvement Required (IR) campus by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for two consecutive years. The TEA requires that we develop a Turnaround Plan for the 2016-2017 school year listing the actions that must take place to foster greater student growth and improve student achievement.  We are requesting input from our school’s community and suggestions on what we should include in this plan. We invite you to participate in this process by providing feedback via the online survey linked below. Your feedback is valuable and will be an integral part of the Turnaround Plan that we develop.

     Participación y recomendaciones de la comunidad sobre el plan de mejoramiento

    Escuela Nathaniel Q Henderson ha sido identificada por la Agencia de Educación de Texas (TEA) como una escuela con necesidad de mejorar o IR por dos consecutivos.  La agencia (TEA) requiere que la escuela desarrolle un plan de mejoramiento para el año escolar 2016-2017 explicando las acciones necesarias para mejorar y aumentar el aprendizaje de los estudiantes.  Les pedimos a los padres de familia, el personal de la escuela y la comunidad a que aporten sugerencias y lo que piensan debe incluirse en el plan de mejoramiento de la escuela.  Favor de compartir sus sugerencias ya que estas nos ayudaran a desarrollar un plan de mejoramiento tomando en cuenta sus recomendaciones.
