SST will extend distance learning until May 4.

A Letter from the Superintendent
April 2, 2020

Dear SST Family,
Today Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order to close all schools in Texas, both public and private, until Monday, May 4. The gravity of this announcement emphasizes the pressing and urgent need to shelter at home. There is no cure or vaccination for COVID-19, and social distancing presents the best course of action to stop it.

The executive order issued by Governor Abbott impacts six million Texas children, and abiding by the COVID-19 recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is critical to protecting all children and vulnerable individuals. We must each do our part to halt COVID-19.

In a recent message I stated that SST will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. We are more committed than ever to serve SST children, parents and staff in ways that support learning and thriving as individuals, families and an educational community. All our SST family has responded remarkably to this unparalleled, fast paced public health challenge.

We are strong, resilient and innovative. We will grow through this experience by working together and by taking positive action. We will keep you updated through emails, texts and social media. Again, I am grateful to each one of you and all that you are doing.

Sincerely,

Mehmet Nalcaci
Superintendent


Senate Bill 139 Notice to Families Tracking Sheet

In 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 139 (SB 139), which requires Texas local education agencies (LEAs) to distribute the following notice to parents:

SB 139 Notice to Families (English version) (second page)
SB 139 Notice to Families (Spanish version)(second page)
LEAs must complete the customizable sections of the documents found at the links listed above and distribute them to all parents or families of children enrolled in each LEA. TEA has provided the notice in English and Spanish. LEAs are required to make a good faith effort to provide the notice in the parent or family’s native language, if the parent of family’s native language is a language other than English or Spanish.

These notices contain the following information:

Changes made from 2016 to 2017 in reporting requirements for LEAs regarding special education enrollment in the Performance Based Monitoring Analysis System
The rights of a child regarding the provision of special education services under both state and federal law
The process and procedures for initiating a referral for evaluation for special education services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and TEC Sec. 29.004.
Where to find local policies and procedures related to initiating a referral for evaluation under IDEA
SB 139 requires LEAs to demonstrate compliance in distributing these notices to parents. LEAs should log into the LEA section of the Legal Framework and affirm compliance by April 30, 2020.

Updates in Special Education


For special education representation, TEA only reports on overrepresentation within certain race, ethnicity and disability categories, as required by federal law. School systems cannot use this reporting data to delay, deny or prevent a referral for an evaluation for special education services.

SST School Closure Extended through April 24, 2020


A Letter from the Superintendent
March 13, 2020

Dear School of Science and Technology Family, The School of Science and Technology has maintained regular contact with local, state and federal health officials in Houston, Corpus Christi and San Antonio to monitor COVID-19 situations in each city. The safety and health of students and staff are our first priorities during this challenging time.

Based on the most current information and guidance provided by health officials, SST has made a decision to extend Spring Break for one more week in Houston, San Antonio and Corpus Christi. School is expected to resume in Houston, San Antonio and Corpus Christi. All extracurricular activities, practices and other events are suspended during this closure.
This decision is made to help prevent exposure to students, staff and the community. While this will present some challenges for working parents of young, school-aged children, it is important to the long-term health and safety of children, staff and the community.
The SST leadership will continue to monitor COVID-19 in Houston, Corpus Christi and San Antonio and will provide updates whenever necessary. We will work with CDC, TEA and all other local and state agencies in case of more extension required and remote education options.
The SST leadership is reviewing remote education as an option for students. Parents and staff will be informed of any decisions that are made.
It is important that all members of our SST family continue to follow the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control.
All staff members are expected to stay within the city to be prepared for remote education options in case the school closure is extended. Keep yourself informed by monitoring CDC website on the coronavirus daily at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html. For more specific information related to Texas please check: https://dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/.
I appreciate your patience and understanding. Again, these measures are taken to protect our students and staff and we will update you as we have more information.

With warm regards,

Mehmet Nalcaci
Superintendent

GT Nomination Month


We would like to announce that the GT nomination window is now currently open. This nomination window will remain open until January 31, 2020. This window is open to any student who did not test in Fall 2019.

GT Identification Process

The first step is to complete the nomination form and submit it to the Campus GT Coordinator-Mrs. Laurel-Wilson during the nomination window. The Campus GT Coordinator is not required to accept these forms before the nomination window opens or after the nomination window closes.
The second step in the process is the Screening/Assessment.
Students seeking admission to SST GATE Program are screened based on the following criteria:
Quantitative Data:
i. School Abilities Tests, Verbal and Non-verbal,such as CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Test)
ii. Achievement Tests, Verbal and Non-verbal, such as NWEA MAP. NWEA MAP scores may be used as a preliminary criteria for CogAT testing.

Qualitative Data:
i. Parent Rating Scale
ii. Teacher Rating Scale
iii. Other/Anecdotal Information
*Testing may take place during school hours, after-school, and/or weekend.
*Campus GATE Committee may adopt, use, and accept other tests if needed.

The final step in the process is placement into the program:
Student’s percentiles and/or scores from the assessment instruments are entered onto the student profile. Each student’s profile is individually evaluated by the campus GATE Committee. A student clearly qualifies for GATE Program if the evidence on the profile meets the district criteria. Parents are notified in writing of the GATE Committee’s decision.

Please contact Mrs. Laurel-Wilson at mlaurelwilson@ssttx.org if you have any questions.
