School Improvement

TEA must identify for improvement any local education agency (LEA) that, for two consecutive years, does not make adequate yearly progress (AYP) for the same indicator: math, reading, attendance and/or graduation rate. It is possible for an LEA to be identified for the School Improvement Program (SIP), even if none of its campuses are identified.

Parent Resource Centers

The McAllen ISD Parent Resource Centers were created by the district to be a source of support and information for parents and families, to offer parents encouragement and support, and to share ways to work as a team with the child’s school so the child can be prepared for his or her future.Workshops are provided on a variety of topics including Organizational and Study Skills, Parenting Topic, ESL classes using the Rosetta Stone Program, Understanding Supplemental Programs, and more.  A Parent Training Specialist is assigned to each center to assist parents with any assistance they might request.  For more information contact the Parent Training Specialist at your campus or the State and Federal Programs office at (956) 632-5192.
