HB 5 Community Survey

EnglishSpanish

Dear Parents,

Lewisville Independent School District (LISD) is recognized across the state of Texas as a district where all students have limitless opportunities to thrive. From the daily classroom instruction students receive to the countless extra-curricular activities in which students may choose to be involved, LISD is comprised of world-class educators dedicated to the success of each student.

Nearly 54,000 students walk the halls of LISD, each of them with individual talents, hopes and dreams. In LISD, we help every student find a path toward a future they create, and prepare them for life beyond the halls of our schools.

Perhaps the greatest strength of our school district, however, lies in the tremendous support LISD enjoys from the parents of our students, and community members throughout our district. Part of how we evaluate how well our schools live up to the district’s commitment to our students, parents and the communities we serve is based on your feedback to our community engagement survey.

That’s why I’m asking you to participate in a brief survey, which will be available beginning March 14. The survey asks for your thoughts on how well our schools are performing in a number of important topic areas.

Your responses are confidential and anonymous, and your candid feedback is critical to our efforts toward the continuous improvement of the educational environment in LISD.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey, and for your continued support of our schools.

Best Regards,

Why We Conduct This Survey Annually
House Bill 5 (HB 5), passed by the Texas Legislature in 2013, made substantial changes to the state’s curriculum and graduation requirements, assessment program, and accountability system. The community engagement requirement is an opportunity for districts to showcase areas of excellence and success as well as recognize areas in need of improvement and set future goals valued in the community. Survey results will be utilized to calculate Lewisville ISD (LISD)’s HB5 rating and shared with the community at a future LISD Board meeting.

Estimados padres,

El Distrito Escolar Independiente de Lewisville (LISD) es reconocido a través del estado de Texas como un distrito donde todos los estudiantes tienen oportunidades ilimitadas para prosperar. Desde la instrucción diaria del salón de clases, los estudiantes reciben innumerables actividades extra-curriculares en las cuales los estudiantes pueden elegir participar, LISD está compuesto por educadores de clase mundial dedicados al éxito de cada estudiante.

Cerca de 54,000 estudiantes caminan los pasillos de LISD, cada uno de ellos con talentos individuales, esperanzas y sueños. En LISD, ayudamos a cada estudiante a encontrar un camino hacia el futuro que ellos crean y los preparamos para la vida más allá de los pasillos de nuestras escuelas.

Quizás, la fortaleza más grande de nuestro distrito escolar radica realmente en el enorme apoyo que LISD disfruta por parte de los padres de nuestros estudiantes y los miembros de la comunidad a través de nuestro distrito. Parte de como evaluamos cuán bien nuestras escuelas llevan el compromiso del distrito para nuestros estudiantes, los padres y las comunidades que servimos, está basado en sus comentarios en nuestra encuesta de compromiso con la comunidad.

Es por esta razón que les pido participar en una breve encuesta, la cual estará disponible desde el 14 de marzo. La encuesta pregunta cuáles son sus pensamientos sobre cuán bien nuestras escuelas están funcionando en un número de áreas de temas importantes.

Sus respuestas son confidenciales y anónimas, y sus comentarios sinceros son fundamentales para nuestros esfuerzos hacia el continuo mejoramiento del ambiente educativo en LISD.

Gracias por tomar el tiempo para completar esta encuesta y por su continuo apoyo a nuestras escuelas.

Atentamente,
Kevin Rogers, Ed.D.
Superintendente de las escuelas
Distrito Independiente Escolar de Lewisville

¿Por qué hacemos esta encuesta anualmente?
El Proyecto de Ley HB 5, aprobado por la Legislatura de Texas en 2013, hizo cambios sustanciales al currículo del estado y a los requisitos de graduación, programas de evaluación y el sistema de responsabilidad educativa. La participación comunitaria es una oportunidad para  que los distritos muestren las áreas de excelencia y éxito, así como reconocer las áreas que necesitan mejoras y establecer metas futuras valoradas en la comunidad. Los resultados de la encuesta serán utilizados para calcular el índice del Proyecto de Ley HB5 de Lewisville ISD (LISD) y compartidos con la comunidad en una futura reunión de la Junta de LISD.
