Katy ISD Board Approves Resolution for Reappraisal of Properties Affected by Harveyhttp://www.katyisd.org/Lists/latestnews/DispForm.aspx?ID=818Katy ISD Board Approves Resolution for Reappraisal of Properties Affected by Harvey2017-09-29T17:27:59Z<div class="ExternalClass03F2190B6963465AB3F74A3F2E5DD77A"><p>​<span style="text-align:justify;">The Katy ISD Board of Trustees has approved a resolution requesting the appraisal districts of Harris, Fort Bend and Waller counties to reappraise Katy ISD zoned homes and businesses flooded as a result of Harvey.</span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">By law, property owners must continue to pay taxes on the full value of their property, even if it has been damaged or destroyed.  Additionally, only a taxing entity, such as a school district, can request a reappraisal of a property after a county has completed its appraisal process for the year.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"While no homeowner will be required to seek a reappraisal of their home as a result of the Board's action, this resolution will clear the way for thousands of our families who are recovering from Harvey to seek tax relief on properties damaged by the storm," said Lance Hindt, Katy ISD superintendent.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Katy area weathered a historical storm last month which left thousands of residents displaced and a number of neighborhoods destroyed.  When the three appraisal districts approve Katy ISD's request, the Board of Trustees will have created options for residents still facing housing, financial and recovery challenges due to the storm.  </p></div>
Katy ISD Lost Instructional Time http://www.katyisd.org/Lists/latestnews/DispForm.aspx?ID=813Katy ISD Lost Instructional Time 2017-09-22T15:55:08Z<div class="ExternalClassF311D8DB26B041319FDCC2F4C340420B"><p>​As many families and staff continue recovery efforts in our neighborhoods, homes and community, we are also slowly but surely getting back on track with the business of teaching and learning across Katy ISD campuses.  As you ​​know, our students lost two weeks of instructional time as a result of Tropical Storm Harvey.  However, because the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will be waiving up to 10 instructional days, there will be no need to extend the 2017-18 instructional calendar, or to modify the Thanksgiving, Christmas/winter, and spring breaks.​</p><p>Our Curriculum Department has worked diligently over the past few weeks to realign and restructure the curriculum unit plans to ensure that all state standards will be taught this school year.  As such, there will be no gaps in the taught and tested curriculum. </p><p>Also, to ensure that our students receive the full benefits of the Katy ISD learning experience, we have identified means to regain lost instructional time to deliver additional support to students.  This includes providing enrichment resources for our families, supplementary study opportunities for Advanced Placement (AP) students, and extending four early release days to full days of instruction.   </p><p><u>Enrichment Resources for Families:<br></u>Online instructional enrichment activities developed by our Curriculum Department are available for parents or guardians to work with their child(ren) at home.  These enhanced learning activities are ungraded and optional, and are available on the <a href="/dept/ci/Pages/Enrichment.aspx">Katy ISD Curriculum & Instruction website​</a>. Each core subject area will be covered for the remainder of the school year.  These subjects include language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. ​</p><p><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Support for Advanced Placement (AP) Students:<br></span>Additional study opportunities will also be offered to students preparing for the May 2018 AP exams. Review sessions and resources are currently being developed and will be shared with students, and published on the website later this Fall.</p><p><u>Extending Four Early Release Days:<br></u>The 2017-2018 instructional calendar included six "early release" days that are typically designated for professional development, teacher preparation, and parent conferences. Four of the previously designated early release days (Oct. 9, 20, Feb 16, April 13) will be extended to full instructional days.  This is designed to allow students more time in the classroom, as well as to serve the needs of so many of our families who are displaced by Harvey and depending, now more than ever, on the daily routine of school to bring a sense of normalcy to their child(ren)'s lives.  We understand that October 9 and 20 had been set aside for parent/teacher conferences at many campuses.  However, in lieu of the in-person conferences, parents are encouraged to communicate with teachers by email and/or phone.  Parents should also continue to monitor their student's progress on the <a href="/pages/home-access-center.aspx">Home Access Center</a>.  Friday, December 15 and Thursday, May 24 will remain "early release" days since final exams are given on those dates.</p><p>Thank you for your understanding as we move forward with these post-Harvey initiatives to recapture lost instructional time and to provide additional support to our students and families. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your school. </p></div>

Cars should line up north bound on Crutchfield entering the car line only from the end. Cars entering the drop off/pick up line should not cut into the line or turn left into the school drive from Crutchfield between 7:00-9:00 a.m. or 2:00-4:00 p.m. Cars exiting the driveway may not turn left on Crutchfield from 7:00-9:00 a.m. or 2:00-4:00 p.m. Cars exiting the driveway should turn right onto Crutchfield and proceed north. Each family will be provided a sign to place on their dashboard to be used for pick up. Please place this sign in the front window of your vehicle each day when you come to pick up your child. This will assist us in expediting the process of our parent pick up system. If your student identification sign gets lost or worn, replacements are available in the office. Parents may wish to have multiple car rider signs for unexpected car or driver changes. Please do not park on the street and walk across the pickup area to get your child(ren). This causes added congestion and delays and poses a safety hazard to the children and our staff. A car without a car rider sign will be asked to park, come in the building, show identification, and sign out the student in the front office to insure each child is leaving only with those authorized to pick up the student. <span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">Students arriving after 8:20 a.m. will be considered tardy and parents will need to proceed to the front of the school and escort their child into the building and sign them in as the doors at the back of the building will be locked.</span><span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;"></span></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">b. “<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">Bus Rider</span>”<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">- </span>The bus loading/unloading area in the north side of the building is strictly reserved for buses between 7:50-8:20 a.m. and in the afternoon when dismissal begins. Bus riders will enter through the front office doors and will exit the building using the doors in the north sector of the building.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">c. “<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">Day Care</span>”<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;"> – </span>Daycare vans will drop off at the south side of the building/back parking lot. This is the same area as car rider. Please inform the daycare to bring your children between 7:55 a.m. – 8:10 a.m. and to pick up your children promptly at dismissal time (3:40 p.m.). Supervision is not available when daycare buses arrive late. Please be sure your child’s teacher knows which daycare van your child will be riding. If your child is absent or goes home ill from school during the day, please notify the daycare center that your child will not be riding the daycare van.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">d. “<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">Bikers</span>” – Bike riders are to use the doors at the east/west corners to exit the building and access the bike rack. Bike locks are recommended daily to keep bikes safe. When arriving at school, children need to walk bikes across the street at the crosswalk and continue walking them to the bike racks. Bicycles may not be ridden on school grounds. All bicycles must be locked securely when parked at school. DWE cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen bicycles.<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">Students are not to share locks</span>.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">e. <span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">“Walkers”</span> – Students designated as walkers should utilize the door closest to their route home. Walkers headed east are to use the doors at the east corner (Pre-K area) to exit the building. Walkers headed west are to use the doors facing west, the Instructional Coach hallway. Parents picking students up in these areas must have their walker sign. Students will not be released without this sign.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">f. The help of every parent is needed to instruct their children on safety when walking or riding a bike to school. If you plan for your children to walk or ride a bike to school, please walk their route with them several times before you permit them to walk or ride alone.<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;"> </span>It is most important that students walk on the sidewalks and cross the street by walking in the crosswalk. DWE does not permit roller blades to be brought to school. Bike riding or walking along FRANZ ROAD is strongly discouraged!<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;"> </span>We do not support the decision for any student to be unsupervised on the busy street. If, however, a parent chooses for his/her child to do this, a <span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">written letter</span> must be sent to the principal stating that parental permission is given. Your assistance in encouraging safety with your children is appreciated.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">Walkers, including those accompanied by adults, are to use the sidewalks from the front doors. Crossing traffic, even with an adult, is not permitted.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">2. The driveway in front of the school is designated as a bus unloading/loading zone during arrival and dismissal times. During the school day parents may use the front drive to enter the building through the front office.<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;"> </span>Parents picking up their children in cars, south side of the building during arrival and dismissal, must have a sign with their name provided by the school that is clearly visible in the vehicle front window. The teacher on duty will call the name of the child on the sign and the child will walk to the indicated pick-up station when called.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">3. Parents are required to report to the office to sign their child out if they must take a child out of the pick-up line during dismissal. Teachers on duty need to see which cars children are getting into in order to help assure safety. <span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">PARENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO PULL STUDENTS OUT OF THE CAR RIDER LINE, BUS LINE OR OFF THE BUS. IN ADDITION, PARENTS MAY NOT TAKE THEIR CHILD OUT OF THE CAR RIDER LINE OR DAYCARE LINE. THIS IS FOR THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF OUR STUDENTS.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">4. <span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">If you choose to check-out your child prior to the end of the day, please do so before 3:15 p.m. </span>After that time, you will be asked to wait in the front office until after dismissal to allow school personnel to complete their after-school duty and maintain safety for all children.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"><span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;"></span></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">5. Parents or students will not be allowed to exit the building through the north doors by the buses. Walking between buses can be hazardous and therefore is strictly prohibited.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">6. If there is a change in a student’s normal dismissal procedures, a written note must be sent to the student’s teacher indicating this change. Please indicate if this change of transportation is going to be a permanent or a temporary change.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">7. All children must leave campus at their class dismissal time in the afternoon. The buses will bring children home promptly. Please encourage your children to think carefully before they leave school for the day so that they will have everything needed for homework and projects.<span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">The school doors will be locked at 4:15 p.m. unless there is a special activity taking place after regular school hours.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;">Transportation changes should be <span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">infrequent and only out of necessity.</span> Try to predict afternoon school day plans and inform your child(ren) in advance how he/she will go home that day. Please understand that a teacher is responsible for correctly and safely directing up to thirty elementary students to the appropriate dismissal location. In addition, there is often only one staff member working in the front office. Written transportation changes after a teacher’s conference period requires hand delivery by office staff to a classroom.</p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"></p><p style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;"><span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">For safety purposes, all written transportation changes must be received by 3:00 p.m. All faxed transportation changes to (281) 644-1510 must have a copy of the parent’s driver’s license attached. It is recommended that you call the office to make sure your fax has been received at (281) 237-6650. </span><span style="font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;">Phone calls, messages on a teacher’s voicemail, or e-mail are not acceptable ways to notify the school of a child’s transportation change. Staff members cannot permit a student to change his/her mode of transportation without written notification from a parent/guardian.</span></p></div></div>
