    All East ECHS are required to take HISD’s Global Graduate Survey. The survey should only take 15 minutes.

     

    To access the survey, students should log into the HUB and search for the course called "Global Graduate Student Survey." Within the course, they can click on "Resources" to find "Global Graduate Student Survey, Spring 2020." Please note that this survey is for students in grades 9–12 only.

    The district is administering this online survey to collect data related to HISD Board Goal #2, which calls for the percentage of graduates meeting the district's Global Graduate standards as measured by the College and Career Readiness component of the Texas accountability system to increase by three percentage points annually from the 2017 baseline of 52% to 67% by 2022. This survey of high school students is intended to determine how well the district is doing in developing the qualities needed for students to be successful in today's world as Global Graduates.

    New Parking Rules and Regulations begin Jan. 2

     

    Starting in January, every member of the HCC family (Students, Faculty and Staff) and Contractors and Visitors will need to display an HCC issued parking permit on their dashboard or hanging on their center mirror when on HCC property.

     

    If you have a permit today, you will not need a new permit until September 2020.

     

    If you do not have a permit today, you may submit a request for a parking permit by clicking on the link and following the instruction at the parking website: hccs.edu/parking.

     

    Who needs a permit?  All Students, Faculty Staff and Contractors and Visitors. Full or part-time, including STUDENTS who park a vehicle on any HCC parking lot across the district will need to have a permit displayed on their dashboard or center mirror. More information regarding Contractor and Visitor parking permits is available by HCCPD to the Campus Operations Officer.

     

    Why do we need parking permits? HCC is vested in the safety and security of our property and resources. To ensure that parking is available to the HCC Family and those visitors and/or contractors who are conducting business with HCC, a new parking permit system is being launched.

     

    Will tickets be issued to violators?  Yes, beginning January 2, the HCCPD will start issuing warning tickets for vehicles that do not display an HCC parking permit on their dashboard or center mirror. 

     

    On February 1, and thereafter, if you do not have the permit displayed, official HCC parking tickets will be issued. Vehicles parked on HCC Property and that do not display an HCC Parking Permit will be ticketed and may be booted or towed, at the discretion of HCC.

     

    Please be sure to only park in lots marked for your permit (students in student lots, faculty and staff in faculty and staff lots). Parking in unauthorized spaces will result in enforcement by the police.

     

    These new rules will make a better environment for all of us and should ease our parking crunch this Spring. Please be safe over the holidays and we’ll be here to serve you in January.
