Targeted Instruction
  • Targeted instruction is a method of assessment
    and instruction based on individual needs
  • Students will receive small group instruction to
    fill academic gaps and enrich learning

  • Good attendance is important for many reasons.
    Your child receives the maximum benefit of
    education by being in school every day, and
    numerous studies show a strong link between
    academic performance and consistent attendance.
    Because attendance is so critical for the quality
    of your child's education, Texas has a Compulsory
    Attendance Law.

  • School district policy states, If a student
    fails to attend school without excuse on 10 or
    more days or parts of days within a six-month
    period in the same school year, the District
    shall file a complaint against the students
    parent in a county, justice or municipal court
    for an offense under Education Code 25.093.
  • Please be aware that vacations are NOT
    excused absences.

  • Attendance
  • If your child is absent send an email or note to
    myself and/or Heather Kenley kenleyh_at_ltisdschools.

Requesting Work During Student Absence
  • When a student is absent, it is important that
    the student takes the responsibility to see that
    all projects, essays, research projects and other
    assignments are completed and turned in to the
    teacher. The work must be turned in at a time
    specified by teacher.

    days, makeup work may be obtained through the
    office. Allow 24 hours notice for work to be

    assessment screens a child at the beginning,
    middle (if needed), and end of the year.

    on the report card for your child having Met
    Standard on Early Reading Assessment.
