Trustee Report Cards
December 10, 2020
On Thursday, December 10, the Houston ISD Board of Education met for its monthly business meeting. This was the first meeting with the newly appointed District IX Trustee, Myrna Guidry, Esq. As mentioned in our blog last week, the Board and district administration have begun to re-focus on academic outcomes and the impact of COVID-19 on student learning. We applaud most of the trustees for their active engagement in the conversation about gathering vital student data; however, we acknowledge that the district continues to struggle with ensuring the reliability of the information they collect in a hybrid learning environment. Unfortunately, we still do not know the true extent of the learning gaps experienced by our students so far this year. We look forward to more student-centered conversations as the board shapes policy in pursuit of the best possible outcomes for kids.
