Jinks, along with his staff, honored them with the </span><em style="text-align:justify;">Chief's Meritorious Citation Award.</em><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">On January 8, 2018, Officer Pickering was dispatched to a residence in reference to a possible suicidal student.  Officer Pickering's crisis intervention skills and his ability to develop a rapport with the student led to a voluntary mental health evaluation which saved the student's life.  After receiving treatment, the student informed the police department that Officer Pickering's dedication to his duty and his show of concern prevented him from taking his life that evening.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">On March 7, 2018, Officer Seiss and Officer Gonzalez were dispatched to Cinco Ranch High School in reference to a possible suicide.  Upon arriving both officers quickly assessed the severity of the incident and immediately began life-saving measures, that included creating a make-shift tourniquet with a leather belt, in order to halt the loss of blood from the victim. The actions of these two officers were instrumental in saving his life. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Every day there is an abundance of heroism displayed by our officers throughout our campuses," said Chief Jinks.  "Although we don't often witness these acts of bravery, the work our law enforcement officers conduct at our schools proves to be a life-changing one," added Jinks. </p><p>The <em>Chief's Meritorious Citation Award</em> is presented to recognize and reward the actions of law enforcement officers and staff for their meritorious service to our school district.  This recognition reflects a commitment to the Katy ISD Police Department's core values which are <em>Integrity First, Service before Self and Excellence in All.</em><em>  </em>All three officers will now wear the merit pin as part of their uniform. </p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Christopher%20Pickering.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Christopher Pickering.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Christopher Pickering</p><p><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Jose%20Gonzalez%20-%20smaller.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Jose Gonzalez - smaller.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Jose Gonzalez</p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Michael%20Seiss%20-%20smaller.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Michael Seiss - smaller.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Michael Seiss</p><p><br></p></div>

AP courses are generally available to juniors and seniors at each of the Katy ISD high schools. AP courses provide students the opportunity to engage in college level studies with the option of taking an AP exam and possibly qualifying for college credit. In addition, research indicates that students who participate in an Advanced Placement course are more likely to complete an undergraduate program, more likely to choose academically challenging majors in college and more likely to pursue an advanced degree. Katy ISD offers Advanced Placement courses in the following disciplines – English, social studies, science, mathematics, languages other than English, computer science, music and art.</font></span></p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;text-align:justify;line-height:150%;"><span style="font-family:"arial","sans-serif";"><font color="#000000" size="3"> </font></span></p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;text-align:justify;line-height:150%;"><span style="font-family:"arial","sans-serif";"><font color="#000000" size="3">For questions about secondary course selection, attend events held at each junior high campus (dates are publicized by the junior high); consult the 2018-2019 Course Catalog; or, contact the junior high counselor.</font></span></p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font></div>
