Each spring the EUPISD Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC) recognizes individuals who have gone above and beyond in meeting the needs of students with disabilities in our region. In order to do so the SEPAC looks at nominations from your colleagues, administrators, parents and students. The committee then utilizes a rubric to score each nomination.
This year the SEPAC had many deserving nominations from throughout the ISD region, but unanimously chose Mrs. Jessica Kietzman as General Education Teacher of the Year. She was nominated for this recognition by one of her middle school band students. Congratulations Mrs. Kietzman, and thank you for all the work that you do to support all of the students of our district.
Additionally, Our school was presented with an "Anti-Bullying" Award by SPEAKS Education (special education advocacy organization) for our PBIS programming that works to prevent bullying and our online reporting system available on our website. We were the only district that had zero reports of bullying by parents and/or students seeking advocacy support and resources for struggling students.
