A safe and civil environment is needed for students to learn and attain high academic standards and to promote healthy human relationships. An act of bullying, by either an individual or group of people in the KIPP community, is expressly prohibited on KIPP property or at school-related functions. This policy applies not only to individuals who directly engage in an act of bullying but also to individuals who, by their indirect behavior, condone or support another individual’s act of bullying.
NOTICE FOR ACCELERATED TESTING WINDOW
KIPP Texas-Houston is providing notice and opportunity for any student, upon parent request, to test for grade level acceleration in K-8 and advancement in high school courses. The KIPP Houston regional testing window has been set for June 8-12, 2020. K-8 students must take tests in all four core academic areas. High school students must take both semesters of the high school course. Each test is designed to take from 2-3 hours to complete and must be by a school designee. In order to meet acceleration criteria, students must score at least 80% on each test. In order for assessments to be ordered and ready for administration, parents should notify the School Leader in writing of this request on or before May 8, 2020.
Upon receipt of parent request and school-measured recommendation (student scores at 90% on current MAP tests and masters all areas of current grade STAAR assessments) , the school will use these links to order tests through Texas Tech University and also provide the parents to the grade level or course review sheets. Here is the link to the review sheets and the link to the institutional test order forms. Place your order no later than May 15th. Let parents know of date, time, and location of the tests. Make a copy of the finished test prior to mailing in back for scoring. As soon as scores are returned, notify parents of results.
