As the 22-23 school year comes to an end, Vidor ISD will be providing summer school opportunitites to meet the HB 4545 legislation for our students. This letter from the campus prinicpal will help parents understand how they can partner with us in making sure we stay in compliance with this new law.
Last year, the Texas legislature passed House Bill (HB 4545), updating Texas Education Code (TEC) 28.021, which now requires an Accelerated Instruction Plan for students who did not perform satisfactorily on or did not take the:
● STAAR 3rd-8th grade assessments in reading and math
● STAAR 5th grade assessment in science
For students who do not perform satisfactorily on the reading or math STAAR in grades 3, 5, and 8, the law requires that a campus committee develop an Accelerated Learning Plan for each student. These committees must comprise the principal or designee, a parent/guardian, and a teacher of the subject in which the student did not perform satisfactorily. If your student is served through an IEP, the plan will be developed by an ARD committee.
Parents of students who were not successful on STAAR should have received an invitation to join the committee or have attended a meeting to develop the Accelerated Learning Plan for their child. If the parent was unable to attend the meeting, the plan developed in the meeting should
have been shared with you following the conclusion of the meeting.
Attendance in summer school will fulfill the accelerated instruction requirements outlined in HB 4545. Students who fail either Math, Reading, or Science will be allowed to attend remediation for that subject. Students who do not attend summer school will be required to complete
accelerated instruction hours during the 2022-2023 school year.
