Early Childhood and Elementary Education
This report summarizes findings and outcomes from the revised Dyslexia Program at Overton Elementary School during the 2018-2019 school year and provides recommendations for future literacy intervention programs in AISD.
This report summarizes the first year of the prekindergarten partnership between AISD, United Way for Greater Austin, and participating child development centers that served 417 students. Classrooms and students displayed high quality of instruction and academic performance, and teacher professional development opportunities are summarized.
Principal interviews indicate that more practical professional development opportunities for teachers and more strategic support from licensed professionals would better help schools care for students with trauma-related behavioral needs.
This report highlights the results of Austin's 4th- and 8th-grade students on the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as the Nation's Report Card.
