On Thursday, March 10, the HISD school board met for their March regular board meeting. They reviewed student outcome goal progress at their agenda review and budget workshop on Thursday, March 3, 2022. Between agenda review and the regular board meeting, the board spent 37% of their time on student outcomes. This is an increase from last month, but the calculation does not include the board workshop and it is lower than the 40% they averaged at the end of 2021.

Time Spent on Student Outcomes

Research shows that school boards that focus on student outcomes have a greater impact. The Texas Education Agency recommends spending at least 50% of Board meeting time on student outcomes. Our calculations now include both agenda review and regular board meetings.

Trustee Comments

    • The Board failed to demonstrate a commitment to Impact by spending only 37% of their time focused on students, which does not even include the time spent in the budget workshop. We recognize how important the budget process is, and we currently only calculate student outcome time between the agenda review and regular Board meeting. However, the Board is only months away from their self-imposed constraint of reaching 50% student outcome time. In the coming months, they must figure out how to manage their time to prioritize students.
