Do the cheer coaches get reimbursed for the training?
The LISD Athletic Department will not reimburse for the training expenses. Booster clubs OR Campus Principals MAY reimburse.
Many of the cheer coaches have received the two courses that cost money through conferences and clinics so additional expenses have not occurred. The Concussion training is FREE.

Who gets the certificates once the training is complete?
Cristie Liles will keep all documents on file. Cheer coaches also need to upload certificates and training information into Eduphoria.


Effective August 1st, students must comply with TEC on concussion prevention, treatment, and oversight. Additionally, cheer coaches/sponsors will be required to complete training related to safety guidelines for cheer and other training programs designed to minimize risks.

ALL cheer coaches or sponsors.
All cheerleading program participants MUST complete the UIL Concussion Acknowledgement Form and file it with school district personnel for the current school year.

Concussion training includes two hours of concussion training every two years. Documentation must be kept on file
Prior to contact with cheerleader participants, a cheer coach or sponsor MUST complete the described training and education and must provide written documentation to be filed with the school district annually.
Cheer safety courses will vary depending on the provider of the training. A risk minimization course will have requirements that vary from course to course for completion and certification. Documentation must be submitted and kept on file.
Under the revised rule, cheer participants will follow the same concussion rules as athletes. Any student participating in a cheerleading program suspected of having a concussion must be evaluated by his or her treating physician. The participant’s treating physician must provide a written statement that in his or her professional judgment it is safe for the student to return-to-play before the participant may begin the school district’s protocol.

Eligibility Lists: Problems with posting/finding grades for online courses continue to be an issue for determining eligibility. Pay close attention to these courses when ensuring eligibility.

An ad hoc committee made up from members of the Theatre Advocacy Committee will create the theatre curriculum for K-12 incorporating the new TEKS. This curriculum will be developed for the 2014-2015 school year.

TEA Side by Side guidelines will be presented for review during our fall meetings for Performing Arts. Many activities/departments misinterpret these guidelines. These guidelines were created for ALL school activities.

The Message

Rhonda Godbey – West Zone Leader


PLCs should have an academic focus.

6.6 Institute a student portfolio system that informs and inspires students and educators for continuous improvement and growth, that travels with the student and incorporates a variety of assessments.

1.5 Design a system that reinforces student risk-taking, creativity, innovation, and thinking outside the box, rewarding growth in knowledge rather than regurgitation of information.

Strategic Design

2.1 Design and implement professional learning for instructional staff to facilitate student and parent engagement through the use of technology.

6.1 Implement professional learning for appropriate staff to be able to consistently assess using testing methodologies that: identify, interpret, analyze, foster and apply different types of thinking in students, identify learning styles, and use rubrics for assessment criteria.

2.2 Provide a variety of relevant experiences, including technological, kinesthetic, visual, “hands-on”, project-based learning, to engage students.

Strategic Design

Paraprofessional Responsibilities

A new music assessment tool for 3rd and 4th grade that will be an important indicator for music teachers. It includes both a written and performance component to provide valuable information indicating not only the skills but also highlights high achievement and mastery of skills. This tool is for in-school use only and not intended to be published district-wide.

The 3rd Grade Symphony Concert will be March 7 at the First Baptist Church of Lewisville. The first concert will begin at 10:00 a.m. and the second at 12:30 p.m. We have added additional time between concerts to allow for a smoother transition and avoid the issues experienced last year.

The 5th Grade Honor Choir will be in the fall this year due to numerous conflicts last year (DI, etc.). Rehearsals are on Tuesdays, beginning October 15 and culminating with the concert on November 12 in the new LHS Auditorium.

A committee made up from members of the Theatre Advocacy Committee will create the K-12 theatre curriculum incorporating the new TEKS.
This curriculum will be developed by the 2014-2015 school year. Teacher training will be provided.


Role of Fine Arts Administrators
Protocol Issues - Teachers too often requests our office to intervene on their behalf regarding site-based decisions which affect their discipline.
Assisting in finding and hiring fine arts teachers. It is clear that the principal has the final approval in hiring but we have numerous contacts and resources in the world of fine arts. Please utilize our expertise as we collaborate to find the best!
Assisting struggling fine arts teacher – want to assist and support your efforts in working with these teachers. Will provide suggestions and implement strategies for success before it is too late. If you have a teacher on an improvement plan, we want to help!

Policy Question 5:

Search for the policy that
details an educator’s responsibility
to report child abuse.

Policy Question 3:

Which policy addresses teacher
conference and planning periods?

Policy Question 1:

Do This, Not That
Be careful who takes pictures of you!

Front Office/Reception Area
Customer service is a priority.
At-will employees.
Utilize parents.
Build relationships, not bridges.

Treat people the way you would expect to be treated.

Customer Service

Have we done enough to effectively communicate what we know to our parents, faculty, and our community through our webpages, via Twitter or Facebook?

Example: Old Settlers' Book Study

Life-long Learning (Strategic Design Goal)

Parent Education/Communication

As we walk classrooms, trend data is indicating small decreases in use of worksheets and small increases in higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.

While the percentages are small at this time, even slight increases in the areas of evaluation and synthesis are indicative of strategic changes.

We have a great deal of work left, but we are proud of everything accomplished thus far.


School day interruptions
Board policy shall be adopted to strictly enforce limiting interruptions of classes during the school day for non-academic activities such as announcements and sales promotions. At a minimum policy must limit announcements other than emergencies to once during the school day.

Board policy shall be adopted strictly enforcing limiting the removal of student from class for remedial tutoring or test prep. A district may not remove a student from a regularly scheduled class for remedial tutoring or test prep, if the student would miss more than 10% of the school days on which the class is offered, UNLESS the student’s parent or guardian provides the district with written consent for removal from class for such a purpose.

If the remediation is a class that is part of the regularly scheduled day for the student then we believe that does not apply here. Be careful pulling students from electives during their regular school day, watch out for the 10% requirement.

HB 5
Students who completed a course prior to Spring 2012 do NOT take the
EOC for that course.

ONLY five exams- Algebra 1, Biology, US History, English I and English II

Minimum score no longer exists.  All students must now meet the Level 2 standard. 

TEA sent home reports (May 2013) saying that minimum was acceptable.  We are waiting on an official letter from TEA about this, hopefully by Sept. 

Good news is the LISD message to students and parents since Spring 2012 has been that we want students to meet Level 2 standard.

Beginning Spring 2014, the Reading and Writing tests will be merged.  If a student took the tests prior to the merge and had not met standard on one component, the student will begin taking the combined version in Spring 2014. 
LISD students completing English I or II in the Fall term for the first time, will have two separate exams in December. 
LISD students completing English I or II in the Spring term for the first time, will have one exam in April. 

HB 5 – Main Points

Need to address classroom lesson design and assessment if grading period is we lengthened.

Board votes in August.

Plan to educate/inform parents/students immediately.

Middle schools need to be prepared to explain UIL eligibility to teachers, students and parents.

Nine-Week Grading Period

We expect phone calls to be answered.
We attend a large number of meetings. If Zone Leaders do not answer the phone, try texting.
Know the emergency protocols and let our customers know what is occurring.

Conflict is inevitable.
Notify zone leaders when something is likely to land on our desks.
Call parents back as soon as possible.
During bullying investigations, always call both groups of parents.


Several Fine Arts teachers have been selected to serve on Music , Art, and Theatre Advocacy committees. These district committees will develop curriculum, design staff development, and assist with events such as the LISD Art Shows and the LISD 5th Grade Honor Choir.

The Fine Arts Office does NOT have a substitute budget code so we cannot provide substitutes for activities/events.

Fine Arts teachers must follow recruiting guidelines as established by LISD to guarantee fair and equal recruiting strategies for all departments/programs.
K-12 Art Curriculum is now ONLINE
The art curriculum is now aligned with the new TEKS and is easily accessible. It will be presented to all art teachers on August 16.

Please monitor Fine Arts requirements for middle school students. Pay particular attention to incoming 8th grade students.

No students are to be denied participation in a Fine Arts activity due to financial hardship. Title I instruments can be provided. While students with financial difficulties may not be able to fund optional trips, these students cannot be excluded from any UIL or TMEA event due to economic status.

Many instruments were lost or stolen this past year. Schools with Wenger lockers need to secure all instruments using a set of combination locks. Directors only will have a master key.

Guidelines for Damages/Repairs to Instruments
Repairs for normal wear and tear will be responsibility of the District.
Repairs for negligence will be responsibility of the family or student.
