State grant to fund SISD Whole Child Learning Center
06/18/2018

The Seguin ISD Matador Special Services Department is the recipient of the 2018-2019 Services to Students with Autism grant.

 

Halcy Dean, director of Special Education for Seguin ISD, said that the grant, totaling $779,050.00, will be used to develop the Whole Child Learning Center (WCLC).

 

“This program will take an innovative approach to early learning and engagement for our three to five-year-old students with autism. It will be a full day yet flexible program designed to provide center based, outdoor classroom and community based intervention for preschool children facing developmental disabilities. The WCLC concept also incorporates 10 non- disabled students to serve as peers for those with autism,” she said.

 

Seguin ISD expects serve approximately 50 students and families in year one which begins this fall. Four classrooms at Ball Early Childhood Center will be dedicated as learning space along with adjacent rooms in the school for a parent/community center to accommodate parents, guardians and families.

 

The grant goes even further, offering all families of children with autism ages 6 to 9 and enrolled in the district to be involved with activities designed to increase understanding, skills and capacity to serve children with autism. “The top priority will be to foster a culture of acceptance and integration of all children with differences and to develop the valuable resources and experiences they can contribute to the community as a whole,” she said.

 

Seguin ISD applied for the grant through the Texas Education Agency and has the option to extend the grant one year.

 

“Over the summer months we will prepare our staff and dedicate resources so that the program, which will provide safe and actively engaging learning opportunities, is serving students this fall,” she said.

Matador Family,

 

It will be a year since I was named the lone finalist for Seguin ISD. As I reflect on this swift year, we have so many reasons to celebrate. Within this time, we have accomplished many great things, and we are on our way towards becoming a destination district for South Texas. If it weren’t for our supportive SISD community, these goals would not have come to fruition.

 

You have embraced our district’s initiatives, adopted new ideas, and turned them into reality. In addition, you have welcomed our district’s use of social media to connect, learn, share and collaborate in a connected world. You have come together to collectively shape our strategic plan and cultivate the conditions necessary for student learning. In just a year, you have taken steps to implement Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and plan for innovative programming for the 2018-19 school year. I am proud to say that Koennecke Elementary will be the first Two-Way Dual Language campus, providing an enrichment program for English Learners. Jefferson Elementary and McQueeney Elementary will be partnering with Texas Christian University to implement LiiNK (Let’s Inspire Innovation ‘N Kids) and provide students with opportunities to develop the whole child. Vogel Elementary will be the first to implement AVID at the elementary level, and Weinert Elementary will expand its fine arts programming with the addition of visual arts.

 

At the secondary level we had the first graduating class of Early College High School students with over 30 students earning an Associate Degree from St. Philip’s College along with their high school diploma. CTE launched a new website and “rebranding” of program opportunities including a very successful Career Day with involvement from the City and students earned certifications in multiple areas. We had many reasons to celebrate accomplishments in our fine arts, athletics and cheer programs as well. We will begin a focus on developing Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships in all classrooms to ensure high levels of learning for all students.

 

I cannot find an appropriate word other than magical… This year has truly been magical because of you!

 

As Barbara Bush shared, “At the end of your life you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent.” Please take time this summer to relax and enjoy your loved ones.

 

Thank you for being my work family.
