Slight Time Change For Pre-K Program

Judson ISD wanted to make sure parents of students in the Pre-K program were aware of a slight time change in the program.  The release time in the morning will be just a few minutes later than last year.  The afternoon session will remain the same.  This change was to remain compliant to instructional minute requirements as mandated by state law.  Take a look at the flyer below

Quality Training At Special Education Summit

This summer the Judson ISD Special Education Services Department hosted a big event focused on new and evolving strategies to engage students. This Special Education Summer Summit was a week-long event at Judson Early College Academy that drew more than 100 teachers along with administrators.  The aim of the training was centered around transformative writing strategies, reviewing special education processes and procedures and prepping for year two of the current co-teach initiative. Those that were there raved about the relevancy of the sessions calling them "The most worthwhile training...in all the years working for JISD."  Others said, "Our teachers are so excited."  Just another way JISD is getting prepared to teach and encourage all of our students.

Facilities and Planning Committee Meeting

The JISD Operations Department will be hosting a Buildings and Facilities meeting at Woodlake Hills Middle School August 7, 2018, from 6pm to 8pm in the cafeteria. There is a lot of construction going on within Judson ISD and this is your chance to be in the loop and watch the district develop.  

This will be a time to discuss updates regarding the bond and construction projects throughout the district. We look forward to seeing you there. 

A Warm Welcome To New Teachers

Being the new kid on the block at any job can be a bit unnerving, but when you are in the company of other newbies, there's camaraderie. Judson ISD's New Teacher Academy was hosted at Veterans Memorial High School and gave those just coming into the district a good sense of how things are done in JISD.  From curriculum, field trips, or how report cards are done to pay and benefits...it's all new and we want them to feel as comfortable and confident going into the first day of school as possible. The folks in Professional Development and Human Resources did a great job in helping these 185 new employees get up to speed in a number of different areas.  They know the learning curve can be steep for someone new to the district so they will always be available for questions along the way, and of course, their campus principal and staff will be an invaluable resource too...that's the Judson ISD way!




Take A Tour Of Escondido Elementary

The name Escondido means "hidden" in Spanish, but Judson ISD certainly doesn't want to hide this beautiful new school that's about to open up. Located on Binz Engleman, it is the newest campus in the district and will take enrollment pressure off of Masters Elementary School when it opens the first day of school. Recently the JISD Operations Department, along with Facilities and Planning teamed up with Joeris, the contractor for the project, to conduct a tour of the new school. Principal Mary Kay Tyson and Assistant Principal Kelly Ruiz were also on hand to explain how each of the areas of the campus would be utilized.  Board members, Senior Staff and JISD's new Superintendent Dr. Jeanette Ball were on hand for the grand tour.  Even though furniture and books weren't quite in at the time, you could tell this will be a school for our students, parents, and staff to be proud of.  The Escondido Lions are ready to roll!
