  • Statewide Birth-Five/Early Childhood Needs Assessment Survey 

    AUSTIN, TX – Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced today that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Texas Early Learning Council are conducting a statewide birth-five needs assessment to better understand the needs of those accessing, providing, and supporting early childhood programs and services for children ages birth to five.  

    As part of this needs assessment, the Council is conducting a statewide survey from March 25 through April 5, 2019.

    The survey is intended for:

    • Families;
    • Staff of early childhood programs and services (childcare, Head Start, public prekindergarten, early childhood intervention (ECI) and home visiting);
    • Staff of early childhood organizations (membership organizations, advocacy organizations, workforce boards, ESCs, etc.); and
    • Community organizations/partners (businesses, health service providers, local governments, religious organizations, etc.).

    The survey can be accessed at:

    Questions intended for families and staff of early childhood programs and services are available in both English and Spanish.

    The survey results and the statewide needs assessment will be utilized by the Texas Early Learning Council to establish a statewide strategic plan. The strategic plan will focus on improving coordination and collaboration, promoting partnerships, increasing quality, reducing duplicative efforts, efficiently utilizing resources, and easing a child’s transition into kindergarten.

    The statewide birth-five needs assessment is required for the Preschool Development Grant awarded to Texas by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Department of Education. This grant is a collaboration between the Texas Department of Agriculture, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, the Texas Department of State Health Service, TEA, the Texas Head Start State Collaboration Office, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, and the Texas Workforce Commission.

    Board image Corsicana ISD School Board Named Top Five in Texas

    The Corsicana ISD Board of Trustees has been named as one of the top five statewide finalists in the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards.

     “I would like to congratulate our Board for this tremendous honor,” said Corsicana ISD Superintendent Dr. Diane Frost. “These servant leaders tirelessly devote themselves to the welfare of our District. Through the Board’s guidance and leadership, CISD has created a student-focused culture so that students and staff continuously strive for excellence.”

    According to H-E-B, this honor is designed to recognize school boards that have demonstrated real leadership in the community based on three criteria:  academic/student progress within the district; identification of community needs and specific actions based on those needs; and new and creative methods for community engagement. To determine overall statewide winner, a panel of judges visit each district, tour campuses and visit with administration, staff, parents and community members.

    Corsicana ISD’s Board of Trustees includes:  Leah Blackard, Board President; Barbara Kelley, Vice President; Dr. Kent Rogers, Treasurer; Rev. Ed Monk, Cathy Branch, and Dr. Charlie Biltz.

    Winners will be announced at the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards ceremony this May in Austin. If selected, the winning school board will receive up to $25,000.  The other School Board finalists include: Del Valle ISD, Socorro ISD, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD and McAllen ISD. H-E-B launched the Excellence in Education Awards program in cooperation with the Texas Association of School Administrators in 2002 as a positive way to support public education in Texas. It has become the largest monetary program for educators in the state, spotlighting best practices and celebrating the passion and creativity of Texas educators. This is the sixth year in which H-E-B is recognizing school boards to highlight the importance of strong leadership at the board level.

    Corsicana ISD Earns State’s Highest Fiscal Accountability Rating

    Corsicana Independent School District received a rating of “Superior Achievement” under the Texas’ Schools FIRST financial accountability rating system.  The 2017-2018 ratings are based on annual financial reports provided to Texas Education Agency (TEA) by districts and charters from the 2016-2017 school year.

    Created by the 77th Texas Legislature in 2001, the financial accountability rating system – known as the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) – is designed to encourage public schools to better manage their financial resources in order to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes.

    The financial accountability system requires TEA to review the audited financial reports from all districts and charters. Based on the submitted information, one of four financial management ratings is assigned: Superior, Above Standard, Standard or Substandard. A designation of Suspended Data Quality or Undetermined can also be assigned when a district or charter fails to submit its annual financial report by the submission deadline and/or no financial data is available for review.

    The FIRST ratings are based on 20 established financial indicators, such as operating expenditures for instruction, tax collection rates, student-teacher ratios, and long-term debt.

    “I am proud that CISD’s financial accountability is continuously recognized by the TEA as ‘Superior,’” said CISD Superintendent Dr. Diane Frost.  “The CISD Board of Trustees and Marti Shaner, Assistant Superintendent of Finance, and the business services staff, provide oversight and management for the district finances.  Recognition of this financial responsibility is important to the District and to the community we serve.”
