Learning Environment Change Requests Due Oct. 4
09/28/2020
NBISD Remote to On-Campus Change Requests accepted Sept. 28-Oct. 4 

 

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. The Change Request link will be available during the following dates.

Progress Reports and Reports will be available online in txConnect
09/14/2020

NBISD parents/guardians of 1st-12th graders will once again need to access electronic copies of their child’s interim progress reports (IPR) and report cards through the txConnect Parent Portal.  This is the fourth school year NBISD has only offered these student reports electronically rather than in paper form.

 

The first release of electronic IPRs will be posted on Sept. 15 through the txConnect Parent Portal. The IPRs will now be shared twice during a grading period at Week 3 and Week 6 rather than just once at the midpoint of the grading period.

 

As a parent, there is no setup required to begin accessing the electronic version of IPR or Report Cards for txConnect. All txConnect accounts will receive the electronic copy of the IPR or Report Card for all students attached to the account. When the electronic IPR and Report Card are posted during the grading cycle, the parent will receive an email notification that the IPR or Report Card for the grading cycle is available to view online.

 

A sample of the email notifications is below:

Stacie Nemec named TAPT Transportation Attendant of the Year
09/10/2020

Texas Association for Pupil Transportation 2019-2020 Special Transportation Attendant of the Year Stacie Nemec NBISD

 

The Texas Association for Pupil Transportation (TAPT) recently named Stacie Nemec the Special Transportation Attendant of the Year for 2019-2020.  Nemec has been an employee in New Braunfels ISD Transportation Department for the past two years.


This award is granted to individuals who consistently go “above and beyond” on a daily basis by taking on extra tasks and working well with both students and co-workers.


“I was thrilled to see one of our team being acknowledged at the State level and Stacie is deserving,” said Brian Gibson, NBISD director of transportation.


According to her peers who nominated her for this award, she is keenly aware of the needs of her students and makes sure she gets to know each student individually. It is not unusual to see her covering the phones for the receptionist, contacting parents, working the pony and/or other administrative tasks. She undertakes whatever job she is assigned with enthusiasm and professionalism.


Nemec was very surprised when she learned she had won because she feels that all of the aides are deserving of the honor. According to Nemec, her favorite part of her job is seeing the kids’ faces when they get on the bus in the morning.


The TAPT awards ceremony that honored Nemec was held virtually this summer. To view the ceremony and related videos, go to http://www.tapt.com/2020awards.html.
