In the next few days, you will be receiving the results of your child’s STAAR test for the 2013-2014 school year. We are proud of the hard work and effort put forth by our students and faculty. This year we have continued to transform learning at Vidor ISD with stronger implementation of Kagan Cooperative Learning strategies. These strategies help us meet the unique needs of all students, and provide them with the skills to work with others in a productive climate, similar to what they will encounter when they enter the workforce.
In addition to classroom innovations, we continue to be leaders in extracurricular activities at VISD. Our band is recognized as one of the best in the state. The athletics program is celebrating three district championships. We added to the vast array of activities this year by implementing a bass fishing team. Most importantly, students are involved in more programs than ever before. Extracurricular activities give our students a place to belong and learn skills that are not traditionally part of a classroom structure.
We encourage you to view STAAR results as we do: a piece of data that helps us further guide and direct learning in the school district. If a student is unsuccessful we realize that this may be due to a bad day or test anxiety. We truly believe that there is so much more to learning than simply a score on a test.
Our goal is to help create productive citizens and life long learners. Great test scores are a goal, but not the main goal. We will strive to provide the best education we can for our students and will continue to build up our community.
The administration, staff and faculty of the Vidor Independent School District are committed to ensuring that all VISD students have access to a quality education. It is our goal to enable our students to achieve their potential so that they may fully participate now and in the future in the social, economic and educational opportunities of this area, our State, and our Nation.
