They also recognize the importance of meeting the needs of all of their students and ensuring that every child has access to a rigorous, high-quality education. McMeans Junior High was selected for its academic excellence, responsiveness to the needs and interests of young adolescents, and its commitment to helping all students achieve at high levels. </p><p>Selection is based on a written application that required schools to show how they met criteria developed by the Forum. Schools that appeared to meet the criteria were then visited by state teams who observed classrooms, interviewed administrators, teachers, students and parents, and looked at achievement data, suspension rates, quality of lessons and student work. The schools vary in size from several hundred to several thousand students and represent urban, suburban and rural communities.</p></div>

Therefore, the District is searching for solutions to adequately sustain the current transportation model.  Some of the potential options include switching to a multi-bell schedule which would impact the start and end times of all campuses and modifying the distance service.  </p><p>Therefore, Katy ISD is asking all parents and community members to take the Transportation Sustainability Survey to provide the District feedback on current use and the proposed changes.  <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>The survey will be available until Wednesday, January 21</strong></span><strong> </strong>and can be accessed online in English and Spanish at <a href="/" style="text-decoration:underline;"></a>.</p><p>The Transportation Sustainability Survey covers four topics: current transportation methods, utilization of district transportation, transportation preferences, and school start and end times.</p><p>Once the survey closes on January 21, District leaders will use the results to provide transportation recommendations. Their recommendations will be presented to the Board of Trustees in February or March.</p></div>
