Cypress-Fairbanks ISD

Second-year Implementation in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD

August 5, 2015

With continued support from Chevron grant funds, Cypress-Fairbanks progressed to the second year of its JASON Project during the 2014-15 school year. CFISD appreciates this substantial investment in learning (roughly half a million dollars thus far) and is grateful for the resources provided. The district added a newly constructed campus to its grand-scale implementation, which included the entire middle school level (now 18 campuses). Per login data, the initiative’s second year served 24,610 students in grades 6-7-8 (a near-match to enrollment) and 352 teachers. One objective measure of achievement was the STAAR science test at 8th grade, a state exam involving 8,139 students in CFISD. The district’s performance seemed to follow the statewide trend, with an overall 1% decline in the passing rate, along with a 3% drop in the percentage of students scoring at the Advanced level.
