For Parents of Returning CISD Students:
This year we will have online registration. This can be done at home or during registration on August 7 and 8 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Clarendon CISD cafeteria. In order to do this you must have a parent portal account. This is a vital tool not only for registration but for keeping up with your student’s grades, attendance and discipline. Instructions for setting up an account, if you have not already done so, is included.
When setting up this account you must provide a current email address. This same address must be on file with each campus. These addresses are a security step to help validate registration. If you do not have this address on file please email the campus secretary. Elementary: email@example.com; Junior High: firstname.lastname@example.org; Clarendon High School: email@example.com The email address that you send must match the email address used in parent portal. Help with all these steps will be provided at registration if needed.
This registration will reduce the amount of paperwork that you will be required to complete. Your presence is still required in order to complete a couple of forms that cannot be completed online. If you complete registration at home, please print the “registration confirmation” form and bring it with you. You must still come to registration to pick up other information including schedules, class lists and calendars.
DATELINE (Clarendon) – Clarendon High School announced today that they have been selected by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE) as one of 727 public schools in Texas to receive the title of 2016 Honor Roll school.
The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction from leaders in the Texas academic and business communities have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For High Schools, the Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness. The Honor Roll is comprised of two different awards, the “Star Schools” Award and “Scholar Schools” Award.
Star Schools are those with significant populations of socio-economically disadvantaged students that have shown a significant increase in grade-level proficiency over time. Scholar Schools are schools that are showing significant levels of academic achievement, but do not have a significant socio-economically disadvantaged student population.
“We are so proud to be recognized by education and business leaders in Texas as an Honor Roll School District,” said Larry Jeffers, school principal. “Our teachers work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement and to continuously improve our practices. This hard work and dedication is paying off for all of our students, no matter their background.”
“These Honor Roll schools are clearly improving outcomes for their students, as the academic data show,” said Charles Miller, chairman of IPE. “The next step is to understand how their educational productivity then translates to economic productivity. To do this, we must link academic and financial data to measure educational funding vs. student outcomes. Our economy will thrive when we are boosting student achievement without spending more – that is to say, when we are getting the biggest bang for our education buck.”
“Many schools across the country are doing well, even those with high numbers of historically disadvantaged students,” said Jim Lanich, ERP President and CEO. “The Honor Roll proves that all schools, no matter what zip code they are in, can achieve this kind of success. School and school district leaders have a great opportunity to find out what’s working at these Honor Roll schools and replicate it.”
The Texas Honor Roll program is made possible by generous support from numerous businesses and organizations including the Texas Business Leadership Council, American Automobile Association (AAA) Texas, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Enterprise Holdings Foundation, and several private foundations. Chevron Corporation provides support for the STEM Honor Roll.
