Missouri City – 13 learning centers have opened across Fort Bend Independent School District to support children of staff members, first responders and active U.S. military members who cannot attend school due to the partial government shutdown. Cool Schools will showcase some of these sites.
Whole Child Health Initiative
Student development occurs within networks of families, schools, communities and society at large. Initiatives designed to support this growth – whether whole child or coordinated school health (CSH) initiatives – will gain the most traction when aligned with education’s structure, framework and objectives.
ASCD has taken steps to create the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model in response. Working closely with leaders from fields including health, public health, education and school health; it expands on CDC’s CSH model by combining its eight components with whole child framework for an unified approach intended to improve learning and health outcomes. Here is more information about implementing its ten elements!
Career and Technical Education
Career and technical education (CTE), also known as CTE, allows learners to explore their interests and build skills within one or more of 16 career clusters. CTE learning takes place across settings like high schools, vocational schools, community colleges, universities and workplaces.
Although stereotyping remains prevalent when discussing career-tech education, it has become a crucial way for students to pursue and sometimes exceed their academic aspirations. Furthermore, its skillset has become highly desirable in the workforce; applying this knowledge could open doors to many different career options.
CTE courses may be part of the student’s regular school curriculum or offered at career and technical centers; regardless of setting, however, CTE emphasizes practical experience over theory. For instance, IT pathways allow students to learn about technologies rapidly transforming our world while staying connected – giving them knowledge that will prepare them for what awaits them in the future.
Student recruitment refers to the process of finding and recruiting prospective students for university or college enrollment with cost-efficient strategies, including email marketing, campus tours and online student ambassador programs. By creating an actionable plan and executing it quickly, recruitment efforts can quickly increase enrollment numbers.
Personalized messaging can be one of the most successful strategies for recruiting prospective students. This involves sending tailored emails or setting up phone calls with prospects individually to explain the benefits of your program and set your school apart from competitors.
Personalizing your message through a blog is another effective way of personalizing it, as this allows you to highlight programs, staff members and students, upcoming events as well as offer opt-in tools (SMS etc) so your prospects can receive updates at times they choose; making them feel valued while encouraging applications from prospective applicants.
Extended Day Program
In the 1990-91 school year, fewer schools reported offering extended day programs than they had done so in 1987-88; nevertheless, private rather than public schools and urban rather than rural ones tended to provide them. Furthermore, both years saw greater percentages of medium-to-high minority population schools than low minority population ones offering them.
Colorado Academy’s Extended Day Program offers children a safe and supervised environment on its campus before, during, and after school as well as during vacation or intersession periods with sufficient enrollment. Students receive academic assistance, peer interaction opportunities, and enrichment activities through this Program.
The Skyward FBISD Communications Department supports its mission through District and campus communications tools like its website, newsletter and social media accounts.
