Superintendent's Message

Dear Thrall Parents/Guardians and Students,

The new school year is upon us, and we anticipate great accomplishments. Many of our teachers and staff are preparing for the coming school year. The new construction projects are in full effect and will provide 4-new classrooms and learning opportunities.  The administration has been working this summer to get new staff in place and prepare for all faculty.

There are many opportunities this year for students as we have set our goals high, and these high expectations will lead to tremendous academic and extra-curricular success.  We continue the College Readiness initiative for students and this year have added the opportunity for the Vocational Certification through the Tech-Connect Program.  Our students have the opportunity to network with students from other local districts and have the opportunity to attend the EWCHEC Center (Hutto, Tx.) to gain certification in several vocational areas.  This is an amazing project providing our students with an opportunity to immediately gain employment upon graduation from Thrall High School. Whether a student chooses to be a part of a strong UIL Academic program or to compete in any of the extra-curricular activities, they will be a part of a competitive school district!

Parents/guardians need to be advised to check the school website, www.thrallisd.com, for reporting dates and times for extra-curricular activities and picking up high school and middle school schedules. Also check the website for information about Elementary registration and school supply lists. The Student Handbooks will be posted on-line and all parents will need to access this information via the internet.  Hard copies of the handbook will not be sent home unless one is requested.

This summer has brought some great updates to facilities as we added new classrooms for the High School, remodeled many classrooms throughout the district, and added more technology for interactive learning in classrooms. Our focus this year at all levels is Student Growth, Building Capacity for Future Plans, and Raising Expectations. This leads to the display of outstanding leadership and the desire for tremendous academic success as we prepare our leaders for their future. We look forward to a successful and productive year- Go Tigers and Tigerettes!

We Can, We Will, All Together!

Sincerely,

Tommy Hooker                         

Superintendent of Schools, Thrall ISD
Did You Know:

UIL Classifications changed for next year-2014/2015.  The number cut-off to stay in 1A previously was 199 and that number moved up to 219 (9th-12th grade).  This year, the UIL created a smaller 1A District with a limited number of schools and bumped most of the other schools up a classification.  Thrall will be considered a 2A for the next 2-year cycle along with district competitors Thorndale and Granger.  Essentially, our district competition doesn't change.

Transfer students accepted at Thrall must meet the Board approved transfer policy and has rigorous standards.  Students wanting to transfer must be willing to contribute to be a Tiger.  The district receives between $5000-$7000 for all students in state funding for the ADA depending on which programs they participate; this includes transfer students.

Tech Connect COOP is coming for 2014!  Our students will be able to choose their degree plan under HB 5 and may decide to earn a certificate (some are Dual Credit) in Plumbing, Welding, Culinary Arts (currently at Thrall), Construction Trades, Auto Technician, Electrical, HVAC, and possibly Computer Programming through Texas State Technical College also known as TSTC.
 
We look forward to finishing a successful and productive year - Go Tigers and Tigerettes!
