Edison Advisement Conference Schedule

 

 

Dear Parent/Guardian:

         

In 2013 our Texas Legislature passed House Bill 5 (HB 5) changing the graduation requirements for students entering the ninth grade in 2014 - 2015.  Beginning in the 2014 - 2015 school year, school districts must ensure that each student, on entering ninth grade, indicates in writing an endorsement that the student intends to earn.  As per state mandate, high school counselors are to review the Personal Graduation Plan and endorsement together with the parent and each student entering 9th grade.  The Personal Graduation Plan must be signed by the student and parent.  Below is the Advisement Conference Schedule of date and time of your scheduled conference during the week of August 11 - 14.  It is imperative that you and your child attend at the designated time indicated below based on your child's last name.

Gold Medal Performance

The Social Studies department at Edison High School is proud to announce that for the third consecutive year our performance on Social Studies TAKS has earned a "Gold Medal Performance" rating from the Texas Education Agency.  To achieve this distinction, the percentage of students achieving "Commended" on the TAKS exam must be 25% or higher for all students and for all accountable sub-populations.

 

Teaching American History Grant

Congratulations to Edison Social Studies teachers Yolanda Moran, Erica Parra, and Michelle LaFontain.  They have been selected to participate in SAISD's Teaching American History Grant.  This three year grant will give them the opportunity to study with professors at local colleges and universities and to visit history sites in Texas and around the United States.  In the summer of 2009, they will visit Boston to learn about the founding of our nation.  They will also be collaborating with teachers from other SAISD schools.
