Hisd School Board Meeting May 14 says
Come support CVPE parents, teachers and students seek a change to board policy during the hearing of citizens (7-8:30 ish but the Board meeting starts at 5 pm.). We want HISD to
-stop STAAR from being used as a promotional standard in grades 3, 4, 6, and 7. Almost all other school districts use STAAR as a promotional standard only in grades 5 and 8, following state and national guidelines. HISD should do the same.

-stop using test scores to evaluate teachers. The American Statistical Association has warned that value-added models like the EVAAS measure correlation not causation and could harm teacher quality if used to evaluate teachers. That is exactly what we see happening in Houston. EVAAS is causing strong teachers to leave struggling students, schools, and even districts where they are most needed. HISD is the only district in Texas (except for TEA pilot districts) that uses test scores to evaluate teachers, to our disadvantage in a competitive teacher market.

Email your board member today and ask them to put these important issues on the board agenda for the next meeting.. It takes five board members to pass board policy and three board members to put items on the agenda.
