Hello Parents,

There are a lot of important messages below, but I wanted to make sure to draw your attention to the latest edition of the PTA Newsletter linked through this message.

 

The 12th is an asynchronous day for students, meaning that no students will come to school, but that all students will still be required to login into their Canvas course. February 15th is a school Holiday, meaning that no students will come to school, and no one is required to login for attendance. A detailed explanation regarding asynchronous days can be found below.

Important Information Regarding Asynchronous Days

The Texas Education Agency has approved the Arlington ISD's request to modify the asynchronous plan to include four days of asynchronous instruction for students during the spring. This time will allow teachers additional planning time and the ability to connect with parents. There will still be school on the four days, but all lessons will be asynchronous, and schools will be closed to students. Attendance will be taken on those days so it is important that students login for the day.

The four asynchronous days are:

  • Friday, February 12
  • Monday, March 8
  • Thursday, April 1
  • Monday, May 17

We are trying so very hard to make this year special for our Seniors--the Class of 2021!  We don't know yet if they will get a Prom, but we are planning for it!  If it doesn't happen, we will have a back-up plan for our seniors!  We need your support to make this special!  Please make a donation today to fund our After-Prom party...or a Senior Celebration.   Every donation will go to fund something for the AHS class of 2021.  If you know the name of an AHS Senior, type it in the box after you click on your donation amount.  The Seniors rack up points with each donation.

School Report Card

Linked below you will find a copy of the State of Texas 2019–20 School Report Card for Arlington High School. This report is required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures.

 

Due to COVID-19, STAAR® assessments were cancelled for the 2019–20 school year. Therefore, several data points have not been updated, including STAAR® and academic growth data. The information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law and is briefly described in the enclosed “2019–20 School Report Card Definitions.”

 

The report for our schools may or may not have all the information described because the information presented depends on whether the school is an elementary, middle or high school.

State law requires that the School Report Card display information about the state, the district, and the school. Where possible, the information must be reported by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.
