The Pflugerville ISD board of trustees voted to approve its annual district improvement plan Oct. 18.
The development of the plan took place over several months and began with campus evaluations and identification of areas in need of improvement in categories such as student achievement, culture and climate, and staff retention, Brandy Baker, chief academic and innovation officer, said.
The approved 2018-19 plan includes goals for improvement in preparing students for careers or college, recruiting and retaining staff, strengthening math and reading foundations and boosting low-performing schools.
In August, Pflugerville received a B rating from the Texas Education Agency under a new rating system that evaluates standardized test scores and achievement gaps.
Throughout the year, the board will receive updates on the progress of specific objectives outlined within the plan in November, January, March and June, Baker said.
Board president Vernagene Mott said she appreciates the regular reports back to the board as they will prove helpful at a workshop the board plans to host in December.
“I think that this would be a nice moment to look at this as well as our strategic plan and all of the data we’ll receive this year and have a really in-depth discussion,” Mott said.
