I Am My Child’s First Teacher

By | Education

The idea behind “I am my child’s first teacher” is to better prepare the children in our community for Pre-K and kindergarten. Through this program, Educate Midland strives to raise awareness for childhood education, begin the conversation of elementary school readiness, and provide resources for parents and family members to further educate their children. Our goal is to educate not only parents, but grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, and society as a whole that we are responsible for being educators and teachers to our children. 

What is the EDI?

The Early Development Instrument (EDI) is an internationally recognized tool that provides a holistic, citywide snapshot of young children’s health, development, and school readiness in five key areas: 

  • Language & Cognitive Development
  • General Knowledge & Communication Skills
  • Physical Health & Well-being
  • Social Competence
  • Emotional Maturity

These five areas determine how prepared children are to enter kindergarten and whether or not they were taught necessary developmental and communication skills prior. In the spring of the 2016-2017 school year, the EDI showed nearly half of kindergarten students in Midland ISD were not ready for school. In fact, in the typical Midland kindergarten classroom, 53% of students were prepared, and 47% were not. 

What can I do?

You, as a parent or guardian, are more than capable of being your child’s first teacher. Merely loving and nurturing your child is a step in the right direction for early childhood development. Additionally, Educate Midland wants to give you as many tools and resources as possible to help you take the next step. Here are some fundamental tips to get your child on the right track: 

  • Read to your child
  • Reduce screen time
  • Sing
  • Count with them
  • Go outside
  • Play

While these may seem like basic concepts, they are each extremely important in the early growth and development of your child. 

Prepare you and your child for the road ahead

The best thing you can do for your child is to be invested in their education. Let’s come together as parents, as a community, and as a society to improve the education of the children we love so dearly. We encourage all parents and family members to visit our website and take a look at the provided resources to better educate yourself on tips, tools, activities, and guides to make sure your child can conquer kindergarten.

1 TO 1 Tutoring Program

By | Education

It is said that “heroes come in many forms.”  Our family’s hero is a 1 TO 1 tutor by the name of Eric Staib.

My daughter Michelle is a freshman at Midland College.  For various reasons, she has always struggled with algebra.  She spent her first semester at MC repeatedly taking the TSI Placement test for math.  She took the remedial class and unfortunately did not pass. She did just about everything we knew to do; she studied and even participated in the online training program.   She was so stressed out about the test that she scored poorly, and had to change from a degree plan to a certificate program as a result. Her dream is to obtain a degree in Early Childhood Development and work with our communities “littles,” and she refused to give up and let a placement test dictate her future. 

At the end of our rope and not sure which direction to go, I called my friend Laurie Boldrick with 1 TO 1 tutoring.  Keep in mind, it was summer, and school hadn’t even started yet. Additionally, my daughter was in college, not high school.  In only a few short days, I was given Eric’s contact information. Eric was willing to help as long as Michelle was willing to put in the work and do her best. The college course that Michelle was taking, an 8-week remedial algebra class, served as “TSI clear” in math. It was self-paced and online.  Eric met with Michelle and evaluated her skill level. He determined and informed her that she struggled with basic math concepts. After only one meeting with Eric, she came home very hopeful and ready to go to work. Michelle would do her review, study, and meet with Eric to “button up” and then take the chapter exams.  If she failed the exam (less than 70%), she would meet with Eric to review again and then retake it (she was required to retake it if less than 70%). She only had to retake one exam! Meanwhile, her confidence soared, not only in math but her other courses as well. Up until then, she had struggled with purpose and grades.  She began caring about her grades and wasn’t happy with less than her very best (a huge difference from her previous attitude of, “well a C is passing so it’s good enough.”) She completed the 8-week course in less than 4 weeks! She also completed it with a B. She has never received such a good grade in math before. Michelle has a part-time job in childcare and sent me the following text last week: “MOM! I am so proud of myself, this boy had to do a percentage problem in math (a word problem) and I helped him, but they taught him a confusing way so I told him there’s an easier way and I taught him how and he got the answer right, I guess there IS a reason to know algebra after all!”

I have never actually met Eric (as Michelle is 19), but he is our true-life hero. Not only did he help her with math, but he helped her self-confidence.  He actually got her excited about her future (and even math). We owe him so much, and all he asked of her was that she “do her best.” Not only has she succeeded, but she is flourishing.  If your child is struggling with any subject, I highly recommend that you try one of the tutors in the 1 TO 1 program. See the list below of available campuses, and if that schedule doesn’t work, please give us a call at Educate Midland (818-2620) and we will do our best to put you in contact with a tutor.

House Bill 3 Passed: What Does This Mean for MISD?

By | Education

Educate Midland is excited to announce that House Bill 3, (HB 3), has officially been passed and is being put into action. This school finance bill was passed by the 86th Texas Legislature and signed by Governor Greg Abbott to better support and reward teacher excellence, focus on learning and improving student outcomes, increase district funding and equity, and reduce and reform property taxes and recapture. 

In our previous blog over this amazing new bill, Citizens Committee Bond Proposal 2019, we explained what HB 3 was generally, and the details of the bond proposed. However, we did not go into detail about what this would mean for MISD and the exciting new direction our community is heading. Here are some of the benefits our district will experience with this bill in motion: 

Improving College, Career, Military Readiness (CCMR)

Educate Midland is always dedicated to our student’s academic journey. From cradle to career, we are invested in ensuring our youth is given the right tools to succeed in whatever their goals, plans, and passions are. CCMR is just one of the amazing opportunities implemented to help students flourish after high school. By giving students specific tools and resources as early as elementary school, we are better preparing them to get where they want to go. Whether it’s college, trade school, or the military, CCMR can ensure that more students are prepared for the real world when they are handed that diploma. 

Additionally, each CCMR program requires the Board of Trustees to develop plans that set specific annual goals. If those goals are met, the district is given a CCMR Outcomes Bonus with funding paid for each annual graduate above a certain threshold percentage. 

We’ve calculated the runs (how much funding a district will receive) for both Midland ISD and Greenwood ISD to help you understand how beneficial this could be when we reward outcomes.

More Funding, More Opportunities

With this additional district funding, we are able to assist in opening many new doors for growth for our students, faculty, and families in our community. The Citizens Committee Bond approval has not only allowed for many new changes in education but the growth and expansion of many of our local schools as well. Each year, more and more students enroll in MISD, and we have reached student capacity at all secondary campuses. This bond allows for the construction, expansion, and remodeling of the following schools, including the addition of advanced technology, to ensure that our students are equipped, comfortable, and safe:

  • Construct Two New Comprehensive High Schools
  • Renovate/Expand Existing Lee High School Site
  • Fully Utilize and Repurpose Existing Midland High School Site
  • Fully Utilize and Repurpose Existing San Jacinto Junior High Site
  • Safety and Security Upgrades at Secondary Campuses
  • Technology Upgrades at Secondary Campuses
  • Select Capital Replacement at Secondary Campuses
  • Athletic / Site Improvements at Existing JH/Freshman Campuses (going from 4-6 and reconfiguration) 
  • Add 1200 seats for Pre-k 

Educate Midland is excited to support House Bill 3 and cannot wait to see the improvement in our academic community. We hope this information helps you begin to visualize the bigger picture of our community coming together to help our students flourish in whatever path they choose.

‘My Plan’ Initiative – A New Direction for Educate Midland

By | Education

Educate Midland has always been dedicated to giving students and their families as many resources and opportunities to expand their education. Getting students from cradle to career is at the heart of this organization. As a result, we are excited to head in a new direction to ensure that more students are prepared to take that next step after high school. 

Educate Midland has placed itself to be the ultimate resource for getting kids on a CCMR, (College, Career, Military Readiness), track early. It’s never too early to begin planning for college or career. Even as early as kindergarten, young students are beginning to understand different occupations. 

CCMR: 6th-8th Grade

In 6th grade, students start exploring different career paths that interest them. Then, in 7th and 8th grade, students will begin to explore course options they would like to pursue in high school to achieve those post-high-school goals. Deciding early between a 2 or 4-year college, apprenticeships or trade school, or even entering the military can put students on the right track early for their academic career. 

CCMR: High School

As students enter the 9th grade, they are now officially in high school! While many freshmen may not be thinking about a career after high school just yet, CCMR is a great way to get them considering career paths that interest them. It will also inform them of the local employment needs of our community.  Freshman and Sophomore year, students will begin taking courses that lead to graduation endorsements geared towards 2 or 4-year colleges, apprenticeships or training, or the military.

Entering junior year, students are well into planning for college and career after high school. At this level, course options begin to solidify programs of study that lead to five options for graduation endorsements on the foundation high school plan. Many students entering the 11th grade may qualify for multiple college-level courses offered at the high school and even choose to visit college campuses they are considering! 

As their final year approaches, senior students will be challenged to take a course load that prepares them for college and career. Students in grade 12 begin to finalize academic decisions as they plan for their lives after high school. 

Mutual Goal = “My Plan”

By encouraging and assisting students to create a plan early on, we give them the tools, resources, and courses that can prepare them to reach that goal. Educate Midland is excited to support programs such as CCMR that help get children on the right track throughout their time in school. CCMR gives students, faculty, and families an amazing opportunity to help as many children reach their goals as possible, and Educate Midland is proud to be an integral part of it.

Citizens Committee Bond Proposal 2019

By | Education, Events

The Midland ISD Master Facilities Planning Committee has officially finalized its bond recommendation for the upcoming November election. At $569 million, this bond will help to seat more children as the projected enrollment for Midland ISD continues to rise. MISD added approximately 1,400 students over the last three years, and enrollment is expected to increase another 8,600 students over the next ten years, a 33% increase. In addition, grades 9-12 are projected to add approximately 3,000 students over the next ten years, a 45% increase. Educate Midland is always excited to support opportunities for growth in the community and encourage everyone to get informed on this amazing new proposal. 

Committee Recommendation

The last new comprehensive high school was built in 1961, 58 years ago for an enrollment size of fewer than 1,500 students. Currently, secondary campuses lease nearly the same number of classrooms in portable buildings that a permanent high school would have, according to district officials. Additionally, the last new junior high school was built in 1993, 26 years ago. Therefore, it is time to make improvements in the school district as these buildings will not hold for much longer at maximum student capacity. As a part of the 10-Year Facility Master Plan, the Committee recommends that the MISD Board of Trustees call a Bond Election November 5th, 2019 summarized as follows: 

  • Construct Two New Comprehensive High Schools
  • Renovate/Expand Existing Lee High School Site
  • Fully Utilize and Repurpose Existing Midland High School Site
  • Fully Utilize and Repurpose Existing San Jacinto Junior High Site
  • Safety and Security Upgrades at Secondary Campuses
  • Technology Upgrades at Secondary Campuses
  • Select Capital Replacement at Secondary Campuses
  • Athletic / Site Improvements at Existing JH/Freshman Campuses

Fiscal Considerations

Residents may be concerned about how this will affect taxes during the duration of the bond. However, interest rates are predicted to be near record lows – 3% below the 60-year average – throughout the bond period. If the district waits, the additional interest could cost taxpayers an additional $150 million to $240 million.

However, the actual impact, when taxpayers consider the impact of the session, would not seem so much. The average $300,000 homeowner would have already had their taxes reduced by $210 per year when they began paying for the bond. Therefore, the difference in what each taxpayer is spending right now would be less than $100 per year.

“We have never had this opportunity, and we may never again. This is the most tax-friendly way possible,” said Ronnie Scott, a committee board member. 

Closing Remarks

By the time construction of the new buildings under the proposed bond are completed, it will have been over 60 years since Midland built a new comprehensive high school and over 30 years since it built a new comprehensive junior high/middle school. Once approved, it will take another five years to fully implement the attached plan. The longer we wait, the more seats we may need, and the greater the cost will be.

Six decades ago, Midland was positioned extraordinarily well for the future through school leader’s and the community’s vision, leadership, and courage. Similarly, MISD and a Committee of Citizens have come together to develop this thoughtful, coordinated plan based upon not wants, but needs that incorporate important taxpayer considerations.

VOTE!

We understand that passing this bond is only one step in many necessary steps to improving the district’s academic performance. Again, we are so excited about the opportunity for growth for our students and families and hope that you get informed, get involved, and most importantly, vote! We will be voting on if this proposal will be added to the November 5th, 2019 ballot at the upcoming school board meeting. This meeting will be held on Monday, August 19th at Bowie Fine Arts Elementary School, beginning at 4:00 pm and we hope to see you there.

Rope Youth- A Road to Redemption

Like many of the youth he works with, Rope Youth’s founder, Karl Baroski, had no father in his life. By the age of 5, his mother abandoned him, leaving him to cycle through foster homes for the rest of his adolescent life. Overcoming adversity as a troubled teen, Karl graduated high school and went on to play college football at Arkansas Tech University. Karl’s passion for working with at-risk youth began in college while working with the Boys and Girls Club and the Sunshine Boys center. Through his job with the Boy Scouts of America, Karl opened numerous outreach programs for kids who would otherwise not have the opportunity to be in scouts. In September 2010, Karl created the Project R.O.P.E. program to help first-time juvenile offenders. After a successful year and a half, Karl left the Boy Scouts to start Rope Youth and has since developed four programs: Project Rope, Grow, MENtor, and Propel. 

The Redirect Outdoor Program Experience (R.O.P.E.) provides juvenile offenders an alternative to formal court proceedings and offers a chance to accept responsibility and move forward in their lives. Through structured activities, this program aims to reduce the recidivism rate among offending youth and provide a positive activity for other at-risk youth. R.O.P.E. is for non-violent 11 to 17-year-old boys and girls. At least once a month the youth participate in a High Adventure activity, including horse-back riding, rappelling, caving, backpacking, hiking, swimming, canoeing, and usually involves camping. 

GROW is an all-girl self-esteem program. All GROW members meet weekly during their school lunch hour with their mentor. GROW is centered around young girls exploring their strengths and special qualities that make each student unique as they can express their thoughts, feelings, and ideas without judgment. In addition to hanging out with other girls and their program mentor, students will learn to deal with stress, express anger, make good decisions, and protect their inner self. GROW girls participate in the community, have local sleepovers, and camping trips. GROW starts in the seventh grade and continues until graduation as their mentor follows them grade by grade and school by school. 

     

MENtor is an all-male weekly mentoring program that meets during lunch hour. Most of these young men were referrals to MENtor from teachers and guidance counselors as the majority have limited family support, live below the poverty line, and are being raised by a single parent or guardian. With these disadvantages, most of these students are behind academically. The best way to overcome these challenges is to build relationships with supportive and concerned adults. MENtor’s purpose is to provide a stable, trustworthy adult presence that the student may be lacking in their life. Starting in the seventh grade, the mentor will stay with the young man the entire school year and follow him through the rest of his academic career, providing emotional support, a positive self-image, and confidence to achieve academic goals. 

     

PROPEL is a six-week prevention program for children in fourth through sixth grade. These students will learn team building and leadership skills through fun group interactions and structured activities lead by a mentor. PROPEL has frequent guest speakers from the community, including C.E.O.’s, Administrators, Youth Leaders, Professional Counselors, and other non-profit partners that have been through relatable struggles and adversity. This program aims to address current issues that students may have before they become a problem in the future. Each week addresses a critical issue that today’s youth face: 

Week 1: Leadership/Team Building Activity

Week 2: Bullying

Week 3: Self Esteem/Team Building Activity

Week 4: Coping and Relationships

Week 5: Drugs and Alcohol

Week 6: Health and Wellness/Crossfit Activity

Outdoor Learning Environment- OLE! Texas Initiative

By | Education, Events

Exciting things are happening on the campus of Henderson Elementary! After zero citations from the State Licensing Inspection and an almost full staff, the Henderson Childcare Center is set to open their doors to children on August 1st! The Outdoor Learning Environment (OLE!) sounds too good to be true, and we are so grateful for the work being done in our community to support our most early learners and their families.

The OLE! Texas Initiative is sponsored by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) as an intervention strategy to combat obesity. Research conducted at the Natural Learning Initiative (NLI) over the past 20 years has shown that a purposefully designed Outdoor Learning Environment can reduce sedentary behavior by as much as 22%. With the inclusion of on-site fruit and vegetable gardens, we can also increase food awareness and healthier choices in our youth. In Texas, slightly over 30% of children ages 2-4 are either obese or overweight, making the importance of childcare centers more prominent than ever. Childcare centers are a logical option to intervene in childhood obesity as approximately 9,000 successful centers are serving about 2.5 million kids in Texas. The NLI and other research strategies have shown that in addition to improving physical activity in the youth, being outdoors and in contact with nature can reduce the prevalence of myopia in children, reduce the effects of asthma and allergies, increase concentration and creativity, reduce stress, and provide support for other early childhood developmental domains.

From A Dream to Reality

With funding from DSHS and USDA, Midland ISD’s new Early Learning Center partnered with Texas Tech University to design the Outdoor Learning Center. Through workshops and meetings, our partners at Midland ISD, Texas Workforce Solutions, and Texas Tech University were able to take OLE! from a dream to a reality. If you are interested in building a childcare center in your local school district, here is a brief overview of how this process works: 

  •  First is the pre-workshop preparation, which involves scheduling times and meeting space, contacting stakeholders, preparing a base plan, and conducting a preference survey of teachers, parents, and at-time children.
  • This workshop is preceded by a public information session for stakeholders (teachers, parents, regulators, legislators, potential donors, and anyone who may have an interest in the project) usually the evening before or the morning of the workshop.
  • TTU faculty and facilitators then conduct the design workshop. This team is a combination of 10 – 12 individuals representing the administration, teachers, parents, inspectors, AgriLife extension, facilities, maintenance, and others who may be able to contribute. The process works to make everyone feel comfortable developing a design solution and seeks consensus among the participants. The workshop concludes with a reflection activity, action planning, prioritizing, brainstorming resources, and evaluations.
  • After the workshop, TTU then develops a final masterplan and presents it to the center and parents. The masterplan can then be used to build support for the project, inform the public and other childcare centers in the community, solicit funding, encourage volunteers, etc. It also serves as a guide for the continued development of construction documents for bidding purposes.
    • TTU also provides advice and technical support for the implementation of the masterplan, through either contracted services, volunteers, or both.

Thanks, ECAN!

In addition to creating a fabulous childcare center, this process assists in training designers so they can replicate the initiative using the same process, allowing us to impact more children by building more childcare centers across the United States. Again, we are so excited and proud of the efforts being made in our community to improve the opportunities for the youth. Thank you, especially to our Early Childhood Action Network for setting goals, the countless hours of breakout working groups and discussions, and your dedication to supporting every child from cradle to career. If you would like to get involved and be a part of future projects, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@educatemidland.org.

Family Fun Day – Save the Date

By | Education, Events

Family Fun Day – Save the Date

On August 10, 2019, The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Permian Basin will hold their third Annual Family Fun Day. Mark your calendars for a day of free family fun, including music, games, face painting, petting zoo, jump zone and so much more! 

The Boys and Girls Club of the Permian Basin has hosted Family Fun Day for the past two years. Hosting the event alongside the Boys and Girls Club are The United Way of Midland County and UTPB’s early childhood education program, “First Five.” The event includes a large community school supply drive as a part of Family Fun Day to help under-privilaged children get a jumpstart on the upcoming school year. This year, Educate Midland is partnering with several local faith-based organizations to provide even more supplies for our children. 

Our Lady of Guadalupe and Father David Hererra, Goodwill Missionary Baptist Church and Pastor Ken Johnson, and First Baptist Church of Midland and Pastor Darin Wood expressed a desire to get their congregations involved in directly aiding the students of MISD and the Permian Basin. In the spirit of collaboration and Collective Impact, Educate Midland facilitated a partnership between the three churches and current event partners to further the success of the past two years.

This year’s goal is to provide 5,000 backpacks filled with school supplies for the children of the Permian Basin. Additionally, nearly a dozen other church bodies in the Permian Basin will join to sort and pack school supplies before the event, along with hundreds of other community volunteers. $85,000 has been raised through community and event partners in pursuit of this goal, and donations will continue to be accepted until the day of the event. 

Whether you donate your time, your resources, or join us for Family Fun Day, thank you for being an active member of our community, and for investing in our children. It takes big ideas, giving hearts and encouraging partnerships to bring communities together in the pursuit of change, and we can’t wait to see how our children benefit because of it.

Summer Alignment Programs / After School Tutoring Programs

By | College, Education

Summer Alignment Programs / After School Tutoring Programs

Elementary school teachers have one of the most important jobs: teaching children how to read. From kindergarten to fifth grade, teachers work with students to improve their reading skills and get them fully prepared for the following grade. However, who is working with students to enhance their abilities during the summer months? Studies show that low-income students can lose more than two months of reading achievement over the summer. Although low and middle-income students learn at the same rate throughout the school year, middle-income students advance their knowledge over the summer. Meanwhile, with lack of access to learning materials, low-income students are often falling behind, increasing the achievement gap between the two income groups each summer. By the end of fifth grade, low-income students can be two to three years behind their middle-class peers. 

This ongoing problem will continue to cycle if efforts are not made to change it. Our goal is to create opportunities for all students to advance over the summer through Summer Alignment Programs and after school tutoring. MISD has joined with Educate Midland and a group of our community partners to share and utilize the school system’s online math and reading tools in a variety of summer programs for MISD students. Our goal is to support our partners to facilitate a summer learning environment where students not only maintain their reading level, but excel into the next school year. 

XTO Energy’s generous funding and donations have helped us in aligning seven partners for these summer programs. For students to access the available online resources, we have donated new and repurposed laptops to YMCA, Kaleidoscope Ministries, Casa De Amigo’s, Unlock Ministries, Breaking Bread Kitchen, and the Boys and Girls Club of the Permian Basin for a total of more than 100 laptops donated for students’ use. Our seventh partner, Greater Ideal Baptist Church, did not need any technology donated but will still be utilizing the reading and math resources to track a progression of students in their summer program. MISD will also provide technical support throughout the summer to ensure the successful use of these learning tools for our students. 

There were 900 participants a day in 2018, and we are currently up to 1600 participants a day in 2019. We hope that these numbers will continue to rise each summer and our list of Summer Alignment partners will increase, allowing us to help as many MISD students as possible. Advancing reading levels among low-income students over the summer is not only possible, but achievable. 

SB 1882 – Charter School Startup and Support

By | College, Education

SB 1882 – Charter School Startup and Support

Creating opportunity for more choices in education within the community is our number one goal and one that we are very passionate about. Of the ten in-district charter schools located in Texas, four of them are located in Midland, giving MISD students the opportunity to pursue passions of their own in a flexible and innovative environment. 

Educate Midland has recently decided to assist Ben Milam International School, Goddard Junior High, and Bunche Elementary through the process of obtaining 501(c)3 status. This change is very exciting for these three schools and our community, however, this process can be rather confusing. Therefore, we would like to shed some light on how this process will work and what our involvement entails. 

While we are responsible for the transition of these three schools from district to charter, we are not running them. They will still proceed as normal, and leadership will be handed over as soon as the process is complete. The Senate Bill 1882, passed in 2017, grants additional funding to school districts that agree to work collaboratively with nonprofit partners, are focused on continuing collaboration, enhancing educational opportunities and ensuring schools provide the best programs for the children served. This opportunity for potential funding opens new doors for a unique and outside-the-box approach to education. Our goal is simply to guide these schools through this transition so that families and children are given the opportunity for choice in the community. 

We see the importance of this opportunity for these schools because their structure and vision for the future lends itself to a change in structure to a charter school. In fact, the vision already being implemented through REACH Network, pioneered by Goddard Junior High, was a driving force behind the decision to seek charter school status for the schools in question. REACH Network’s mission is to graduate students from its PK-8 curriculum prepared to fully engage and excel in high school coursework and have a strong path to post-secondary opportunities of their choice.

For a currently operating school or academy to become an in-district charter, charter organization officials fill out an application, which is then reviewed by the district. From there, a performance contract is set up and a 501(C)(3) to operate the charter. Once this is complete, Ben Milam International School, Goddard Junior High, and Bunche Elementary will run as normal, with additional freedom and advanced school subjects for each child to choose from. With the approval of Senate Bill 1882, the REACH Network, and a 501(c)3, these three schools will have successfully transferred from a public school system to a charter system, and we are honored for the opportunity to assist them in achieving this goal.
