Week of December 5

The +10 Mindset
Blake Cooper from Friends of Texas Public Schools
speaking to Region 10 leaders this past week
at Blue Ridge ISD
Texas Public Schools do amazing things for 5.2 million students every day.  Texas public schools create future ready students, and they expose them to tremendous opportunities and experiences that can never be measured on a standardized test.  Our goal is to continue to improve at meeting the needs of all kids and increase the opportunities that will help them meet and even exceed their potential.

Today, the future of Texas public schools is at risk as the Texas legislature convenes in Austin on January 10.  There are 3 issues that will severely damage all Texas public schools if not addressed.
  • The A-F Accountability System
  • Vouchers or Education Savings Accounts
  • Decreasing State Funding of Schools
PLEASE READ THIS FLYER to get a better picture of the position of the 80 districts in Region 10 and what we would like to see happen in this legislative session.

Over the next few weeks, I will tell you ways that you can positively influence the future of Blue Ridge ISD in this next legislative session.

Additional Information

The BRISD Food Pantry is filling up.  Please contact
your school if you would like to get involved.
The BRISD Food Pantry is filling up and we are already helping students and their families in the BRISD community.  I would like to thank some very important people for getting this started.  Special thanks go to Carolyn Wink, Terri Rodriquez, Matthew Todd, Anthony Figueroa, Dena Hamilton, and the BRHS Beta Club for all of their work in getting this program started.  This program will go a long way in helping our students meet their basic needs so that they can grow in their learning in school.

Special thanks goes out to Lowe's of McKinney for donating 2 cabinets for us to store our canned and boxed food items.
