AISD graduates completed a follow-up survey about their high school college and/or career preparation one year after graduation. This report focuses on students’ perceptions of their postsecondary preparedness and ways it could be improved.
Twenty-nine percent of students enrolled in AISD were English language learners in 2009-2010. The majority of them (62%) continued to make progress in English proficiency and their TAKS scores have continued to improve over the years.
AISD served 5,450 pre-K students in 2009-2010. Approximately 70% of sampled English-speaking pre-K students and 74% of sampled Spanish-speaking pre-K students had faster than the expected growth rate in receptive vocabulary.
The AISD Positive Behavior Support (PBS) model is based on national models that use behavior support systems at the universal, targeted, and intensive levels of intervention to promote pro-social behaviors, to reduce chronic disruptive and destructive behaviors among students, and to meet the needs of children with significant behavior challenges.
