Learning Environment Change Requests Due Feb. 28
02/22/2021
NBISD Remote / On-Campus Change Requests Due Feb. 28 

For the 2020-21 school year, parents have the option to change their student’s learning environment for the next grading period during a set timeframe that concludes two (2) weeks prior to the new grading period. 

 

This request form is only for students requesting a change in learning environment - remote to on-campus or on-campus to remote.

 

  • Those wishing to remain in remote learning or switch to remote learning will need to be passing 3 core classes AND have an attendance rate of at least 90%
  • As students and parents make new learning environment choices, we will have to staff appropriately for those choices. It is important to note:
  • A change in learning environment may result in a teacher/campus change for elementary students and teacher/schedule change for secondary students
  • If enough students return to the physical classroom, some of the remote teaching positions will also have to return to the classroom. This could potentially cause remote students to be redistributed into new remote classrooms with a different remote teacher.
  • Due to parameters in our student information system, schedule changes cannot be made until after the report card is sent to parents.
  • Elementary schedule changes are not dependent on our student information system. Therefore they will report to their new learning environment on October 19th.
  • Secondary schedules are dependent on our student information system.  Therefore, students will need to remain in their current learning environment completing work and attending classes until the school contacts the student/parent with the official schedule change.  
 

It is important to note that a selection change for the grading period means a commitment to remain in that learning environment for the complete grading period.


The Change Request must be submitted by the deadlines noted below through the online form.

Five NBISD schools named to ERP Honor Roll

Five NBISD schools named to ERP Honor Roll

Five New Braunfels ISD campuses have been named to the Texas Educational Results Partnership (ERP) Honor Roll for high achievement in student success for the 2019-20 school year. The ERP Honor Roll program is sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence, and it’s part of a national effort to identify high-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. 


The five NBISD schools named to the honor roll are: 


• County Line Elementary School


• Lamar Elementary School


• Seele Elementary School


• Walnut Springs Elementary School


• Oak Run Middle School 


“I am extremely proud of these five campuses.  NBISD began a transition in 1987 to focus on student achievement and equity for all students and campuses,” said NBISD Superintendent Randy Moczygemba. “We have made great strides over the past 14 years by restructuring to K-5 elementary campuses and working toward a bond program that not only meets enrollment growth needs but has brought our facilities into the 21st Century.  The NBISD vision statement, ‘Every Student. Every Day.’ is the mantra by which we live and the results are evident here.”


The NBISD schools named to ERP Honor Roll are five of 3,490 public schools in Texas and California that were recognized. The ERP Honor Roll utilizes public school student achievement data to identify successful schools and districts. Schools that are named to the ERP Honor Roll demonstrate consistent high levels of student-academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations, according to the ERP website. 


A full list of results can be found at https://dataportal.edresults.org/Metrics/HonorRoll.

The Educational Results Partnership is a non-profit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness throughout the educational system. More about ERP can be found at https://www. edresults.org/.

 NBISD Superintendent Search Participate in Survey

The New Braunfels ISD Board of Trustees is currently in the process of searching for a new superintendent. Long-time Superintendent Randy Moczygemba will be retiring at the end of the current school year.


JG Consulting was selected by the board as a third-party firm to lead the process. The firm will manage the hiring and recruitment process in conjunction with the Board of Trustees.


An important element of the process is to gather and utilize community input. The initial step in this process will be to seek input on the qualities the stakeholders of this community would like to see in the next superintendent. A survey is currently being conducted and a series of virtual town hall meetings will also take place in the near future. Parents, staff, students and community members are invited to participate.

Fifth grader helps younger students after bus accident

Klein Road Elementary School fifth-grader helps younger students after bus accident

Assisting others in the aftermath of a school bus accident just came natural to one Klein Road Elementary School student. Quintana Cuellar-Ysaguirre is a fifth-grade student there, and one day she and other students, older and younger, were passengers on a New Braunfels ISD school bus that was “T-boned” by a motorist. No major injuries were reported as a result of the accident, thankfully. And while there were no injuries, many of the students were frazzled.


“Almost everyone was on the ground,” Quintana said. “I hadn’t thought about if it was bad. I just went and started checking on the younger kids.”


For Quintana, she wasn’t even sure what had happened at first. “We were in this big school bus, so I thought we just hit a big curb,” she said. “But then I saw tons of smoke, and I realized that we were in a crash.”


While some kids were scared and others confused, Quintana held herself together well. “I wasn’t scared,” she said. “I felt like I was able to contain myself, so I just started helping.” Transportation staff took notice at how she reacted and helped others immediately.


“In a stressful moment, Quintana displayed what it means to be a Unicorn,” said Brian Gibson, transportation director for NBISD. “She assisted the driver with checking on and comforting many younger students. She remained well composed throughout the entire event.”


Overall, the entire experience made Quintana feel good about helping others. While she isn’t exactly sure what she wants to do when she grows up, she said, “I possibly might want to go into something where I can help people in the future.”


For her helpful and responsive actions, Quintana received a certificate of achievement at a Feb. 8 NBISD Board of Trustees meeting. Being honored by the school district, “meant everything to me,” Quintana said. “It just really made me proud.”


Quintana said her classmates also were shocked to hear the story. “My teacher told my class and friends, and they all were just really surprised,” she said. “But really, I feel like I was just part of it, and everyone on the bus was just trying to help each other.”
