In a determined effort to prioritize students and drive measurable results, the principals and administration of La Joya ISD participated in a training session led by TEA Lone Star Governance Coach Kara Belew. The training session marks a significant step in the district's ongoing commitment to becoming more student-focused, data-driven, and results-oriented.
Central to this commitment is the implementation of the Strong Foundation Literacy Grant, a groundbreaking initiative designed to bolster the district's efforts in Reading and Language Arts (RLA) education for students in grades PK-12. By creating, adopting, and implementing a comprehensive RLA District Framework, La Joya ISD aims to provide a solid foundation for literacy development across all grade levels.
Recognizing the pivotal role teachers play in delivering high-quality education, the grant program includes provisions to ensure that educators receive the necessary support and resources to effectively implement the RLA District Framework. La Joya ISD understands that successful implementation requires a collaborative effort and ongoing support for teachers.
"We are committed to continuous improvement and providing ongoing support to our educators," stated Superintendent, Heriberto D. Gonzalez. "By fostering collaboration, communication, and professional growth, we are empowering our teachers to meet the diverse needs of every student in our district."
The training session with TEA Lone Star Governance Coach Kara Belew served as a catalyst for enhancing instructional practices, refining curriculum alignment, and strengthening assessment strategies. Principals and administration gained valuable insights and strategies to effectively guide their schools toward improved student outcomes.
La Joya ISD remains steadfast in its mission to equip students with the skills necessary for success in a rapidly evolving world. By embracing student-focused initiatives, such as the Strong Foundation Literacy Grant and ongoing professional development, the district is laying a solid foundation for Educational Excellence and empowering its educators to unlock the full potential of every student.
