    Higher Start Class

     

    52 CHS Seniors will Graduate from Navarro College before High School

    First Class of Higher Start Students Graduate

     

    On May 10, 52 students who have not yet received their high school diploma at Corsicana High School, will graduate from Navarro College with their associate degrees and zero college debt. Four years ago, CHS freshmen students were given an opportunity to begin a new program called ‘Higher
    Start – 2 degrees, 4 years’ introduced by Corsicana ISD in partnership with Navarro College.

    “The vision for this program is to provide opportunities for select students to obtain a college degree with the support and programs available at Corsicana High School,” said Dr. Diane Frost, Superintendent of CISD. “I am so proud of this first class of students who have been
    dedicated to the Higher Start program.”

    Corsicana ISD covers the cost for the college tuition, books and fees for every student in the program.
    “These students have proven that hard work and persistence pay off. The administration and staff at CHS have done an outstanding job of paving the way for future students. CISD is fortunate to have a partnership with Navarro College to be able to make this program possible,” said Dr. Frost.

    Most classes offered through Higher Start are dual credit courses ‐ students receive credit for high school and college for the same class.
    These Navarro College graduates have obtained at least 60 college credit hours that translates to two years of college. Specific course transferability depends on each student’s selected college and major.

    “I would definitely recommend the program to students. I think it has better prepared me for what to expect at the University of Houston,” said Emily Wilkins, senior at CHS.

    “My completion of Higher Start will allow me to complete a five‐year master’s degree program at A&M University in four years,” said Caden Reed, senior at CHS. Reed has been accepted into the School of Engineering honors program at Texas A&M University.

    “I was worried about my classes transferring to Texas A&M University,” said Baileigh Johnson, senior at CHS. “I was excited that all my classes through Navarro College will transfer as core or elective credits.”

    Participation in this program requires a great deal of organization and commitment. “I am extremely proud of this inaugural class. Their commitment to this program was unprecedented. They were able to accomplish their goal of earning an Associate Degree while participating in extracurricular
    activities and working part‐time jobs,” said Shonna Franklin, Advanced Academics Coordinator at CHS. “I can’t wait to see what lies ahead for their future, and I am proud to have been a part of their journey.”

    The 52 CHS seniors will graduate at the May 10 Navarro College ceremony with their associate degrees.
    CHS graduation is Friday, May 24 at Tiger Stadium at 8pm.

    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.”
