    Corsicana ISD Participates in Texas Reads One Book

    Students in 3rd and 4th grade at Corsicana Independent School District (CISD) will join others across Texas in kicking off the fifth annual statewide celebration of literacy called “Texas Reads One Book” on April 15.

    That day, students will gather at school to watch a video of Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett reading the first chapter of Friendship According to Humphrey. Then, for the next two weeks, the students will participate in lessons and activities related to the book at school while reading and discussing the book at home with their families.


    The program provides a powerful model for engaging parents because every student in participating schools receives a copy of the book. This encourages even reluctant readers and parents who don’t normally participate in school activities to get involved.

    “The opportunity to bring a grade level together to focus on reading a fun and engaging book is significant,” said Dr. Diane Frost, superintendent at Corsicana ISD. “We hope to generate excitement and a shared learning experience for our students and their families.”

    Texas Reads One Book is a project by the nonprofit family literacy organization Read to Them with support from the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) and AASA | The School Superintendents Association.

    Sam Houston Elementary Receives Technology Grant

    Corsicana ISD’s Sam Houston Elementary Dual Language Campus receives $10,000 for devices that will help transform classrooms into digital learning communities. The grant will enhance student achievement through real world applications and hand-on learning that caters to each student's individual needs. Providing more electronic devices to deliver applications, such as Flipgrid, will help teachers begin the process of flipping classrooms into globally connected learning labs, allowing students to have opportunities to practice listening and speaking skills in multiple languages.

    The grant, written by Brandi Moore the Multimedia Specialist at Sam Houston, is made possible through the Education Service Center (ESC) Region 12 Technology Foundation. These technology grants are provided to support educational technology programs.

    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.”
