|The Campus Improvement Council was directed by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to develop individual campus performance objectives and the measurement tools needed to assess those objectives.
Members selected to serve on the Council are composed of teachers, campus staff, NEISD district staff, parents, and community and business representatives. This very committed group is responsible for assisting the principals with site-based decision making, helping identify the annual objectives for improving student performance in a variety of areas, and developing the procedures for implementing those objectives.
Members meet during the year to provide input in the areas of planning, budgeting, curriculum, staffing patterns, staff development, and school organization. This past year, CIC concluded its initial organizational meetings with a carefully framed set of objectives, the primary goal of attaining the ‘Exemplary School Recognition’ status for Hidden Forest clearly in sight. It received the 'Exemplary School' designation in August, 1999, and a special recognition for math TAAS scores..
A major role that the CIC plays is to help develop & monitor our Campus Plan which can be viewed from our school's web site. The Campus Plan provides strategies to improve strategies to improve instruction for all of our students as we help them "be the best they can be."
