If your child is in 8th grade, the form must be filled out to hold their spot for High School.

Re-enrollment process is a confirmation to HSI-Katy that your student will be returning/not returning to HSI-Katy in 2019 – 2020 academic school year. All parents must complete re-enrollment for their student(s). Re-Enrollment is an individual per student.

Dear Parents,

Please review our school report card via TEA.

Texas Education Agency UpdatesThe 2017–18 School Report Cards (SRC) are now available on the Texas Education Agency’s website at http://tea.texas.gov/perfreport/src/index.html. The purpose of the SRC is to inform parents and guardians about a campus’s individual characteristics and its academic performance.

For those who would like greater detail about the information in the SRC, the glossary that accompanies the 2017–18 Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) is a useful resource. It contains definitions and methodologies for all the information included in the SRC. The data in the SRC is a subset of that published in the TAPR. The TAPR Glossary is available on the TEA website at https://rptsvr1.tea.texas.gov/perfreport/tapr/2018/glossary.pdf.
