Temple Machine Shop. As the District has implemented the previous two career strands both in manufacturing and in health sciences, it moves towards the third leg of the proverbial stool, implementing the technology strand for the 2015-2016 school year. We continue to seek a partner for this initiative which once again will offer a K-12 career strand beginning at Kennedy-Powell, moving to Bonham Middle School, and culminating in a range of possible courses and certification areas at Temple High School. What a great adventure with our corporate team! Eighth grade career days are scheduled as follows in the morning of the following days at the Temple High School Career Center: Wednesday, December 10 - Lamar Middle School Thursday, December 11 - Travis Science Academy Friday, December 12 - Bonham Middle School The regional P20 has been financially dependent upon a Texas Guarantor Grant since almost its inception and accordingly the P20 initiatives were program specific based upon the programs originally written into this privately funded grant. However with that grant becoming tentative, the P20 is redefining itself with a Winter Retreat planned to clearly define the P20’s purpose, subsequent goals, organizational structure, and funding. With a group of 30-40 dedicated people from all walks of life, the P20 has the people ready to go. The November conference was a hit and the agenda for the November 6, 2015 conference was laid out, once again to be held at UMHB. The theme of next year’s conference will be business models at home and abroad including and beginning with a European business model, progressing toward breakout sessions not just for educators but for businesses interested in furthering their relationships with the schools, informational sessions from current business partners and how they are making it work, and on-site demonstrations for different soft skills training packages The TISD PAC met with its college partners on December 2. Thank you Nancy Preston and the TISD secondary counselors for your commitment to this communication tool. It has made an enormous difference in the array of services, the coordination of those services, and the communication thereof. The PAC reviewed the following.

CONSTRUCTION The district has concluded all of the departmental and campus long-range facilities input sessions.

The Winter Board Retreat date has been switched to February 4, 2015 -8:00 a.m. and the Board campus tours date will be Wednesday, January 21, 2015 - 8:00 a.m. We need to give STANTEC a longer time to work with the information that we are feeding them. Board Campus Tours – January 21. 8:00 a.m., we will focus on Temple High School’s fine arts, athletics, and CTE facilities and programs including tours of these and the Swim Center.

Ms. Nancy Preston, Director of Counseling, Raye-Allen Elementary School’s Counselor John Stumph, and Temple High School’s Lead Counselor Amy Contrucci presented a brief demonstration of how Career Cruising benefits TISD students. To support the provisions of HB5, TISD purchases Career Cruising for each student’s use in grades K-12. Career Cruising is a comprehensive web-based career exploration and portfolio program used by 1,200 schools across the state of Texas. Students create electronic portfolios, take interest inventories, build resumes and personal graduation plans (Four Year Plans) using the Career Cruising course planner. The use of the Career Cruising program provides staff and students with the necessary resources to fulfill the provisions of HB 5. School Counselors, teachers, administrators and parents or guardians can monitor students’ progress and communicate completion requirements through the use of customization and reporting tools that accompany student resources. Career Cruising fully interfaces with Skyward, allowing for a customized graduation plan using critical information including course credits earned, course descriptions, prerequisite requirements and suggested courses.
