CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi Independent School District is wrapping up a survey about how it's doing its job.
They are seeking to create a framework for action for the district. The survey includes responses in English and Spanish to talk with parents and community members in a survey that will close Friday afternoon.
The district's appeal is coming as Texas school districts are facing pressure from the state about a potential cut in funding because of enrollment declines because of COVID-19.
Texas funds schools based on attendance, whether students are learning from home during the pandemic or attending classes at schools.
But because many districts have seen enrollments drop as schools and families grapple with closures and health concerns, state leaders agreed to fund districts for the first 18 weeks of this academic year based on their projected attendance numbers instead of actual student counts.
The reprieve is nearing its end as the first semester closes. And it's coming as the district completes its survey.
That brings us to our question.
What do you think about how the CCISD is doing its job?
In what areas do you think they they are successful?
And what specific areas would you like to see some changes?
Please share any and all comments. We're interested in how you would respond to the district's survey.
