Ask the Governor’s Office for a Special Session to increase the basic allotment. Message from Superintendent Gregorski in your inbox today.

"To date, the Senate’s message has been that investing in Texas public schools is not the priority. Due to the lack of significant investment in our public schools, this will be a challenging budget year for districts across the state."

May 23, 2023

Dear Katy ISD Staff and Community,

You may recall that when the 88th Texas Legislative Session commenced this past January, our state elected officials declared that supporting school district efforts to recruit and retain highly qualified teachers would be a top priority. In fact, Governor Abbott charged the Texas Education Agency with developing a Teacher Vacancy Task Force to recommend such policy by the conclusion of the session. Right alongside that very important objective, was school safety. If recent tragedies have taught our state anything, it is that being prepared and equipped for the unimaginable, is of the utmost importance for our school communities.

However, the 88th Texas Legislature will soon come to an end on May 29th, and to date, not a single meaningful bill supporting teachers, school safety, nor the stagnant per student Basic Allotment, has been sent to the governor for signature. Unfortunately, instead of addressing issues of teacher shortages, safety, and school finance, our Texas Legislature has been hyper focused on passing education savings accounts, aka “vouchers” to fund private schools in Texas. As a result, public education bills have stalled, or simply put, been held hostage while these latter concerns are negotiated.

The Basic Allotment, which is the primary source of school funding that is also used to fund teacher raises, has remained at $6,160 per student since 2019. This is even whilst inflation has skyrocketed, and the state has a $33 billion dollar surplus. Katy ISD teachers are the heart of our students’ success. The district cannot effectively take care of our teachers and staff when the state is more interested in passing policy that will send public funds to private schools.

As superintendent of Katy ISD, I have been through three legislative sessions, though have not once felt the need to send our school community a letter about state politics, until now. With six days left in the 88th Legislative Session, and no bills passed to address teacher shortages and compensation, safety, and school finance, Texas school districts are at a disadvantage. And please know that my voice on this matter is not an indictment of our Texas House and Senate. But actions, and in this case, the lack thereof, speak volumes. Adequately funding public schools, taking care of teachers, and keeping our schools safe no longer seem to be a top priority for our state legislature, as evidenced by the lack of such bills having passed this session.

I encourage our community to reach out to your elected official in the House and Senate. Ask them to prioritize the issues they said they care about. Our Katy ISD students deserve nothing less.

Ken Gregorski, Ed.D.
Superintendent

Hi everyone, my name is Chloe and I am SLHS alum (class of 2018) currently attending Emory. I hope you are all staying safe and healthy! I'm a part of CovEducation, a student-run organization that strives to provide free, virtual tutoring for K-12 students. We are hosting a virtual college fair with over 50 universities! For current seniors that are trying to decide which school to attend but are unable to visit the universities, this is a great opportunity to learn more about many different universities and what they have to offer. There are also more general panels, such as a pre-med, engineering, how to choose your major, and how to make college affordable. See the link to learn more and RSVP!

Seven Lakes HS Band has been sent to New York City on a school-organized spring break trip putting the kids at the risk of contracting Covid-19. Is the PTSA taking any special measures to inform the kids and their parents to take any special measures before returning to school? I understand that 80% experience mild symptoms but our schools do have the vulnerable 20% with pre-existing medical conditions. What are you doing to protect the kids?
Admin, Please delete if it not appropriate to this group ISO high schooler who is willing to earn some pocket money by providing baby sitting for my children after school for an hour (M-Th) till I come back from work. My children are in Shafer Elementary and are walkers.

Great way to find someone that needs your help:

Good morning! We are taking a team to Raintree Village this morning to help clean up efforts. Feel free to join us. Starting at 20218 Pomegranate and will move down the street as needed. Bring tools, gloves, masks, cleaning supplies, contractor bags, water and snacks. Wear long pants and sturdy shoes, long sleeves are usually a good idea too. (You really don't want this stuff on you.) text me at 832-279-8362 if you need more info.
As far as I can tell the vast majority of us in this area stated high and dry. I am compiling a list of people ready and able to help with clean up for our less fortunate neighbors that took on water. They will need to get everything wet out of their houses the MINUTE the water is down. They will also need people willing to pick up bags of laundry and wash it for them (there is a special way you can wash clothes affected by floods--I will give you that info)

Ft Bend Sherrifs Annex behind Harmony School needs meals desperately. I can connect you to the woman organizing 3 squares a day for these rescuers who have been sleeping at the station and pulling triple shifts.

I have no doubt that most of you are already out in the community volunteering and doing whatever needs to be done.

But if you are looking for a way to help, comment here or PM me or text me directly at 832-279-8362 and I can bring you laundry to wash or send your strong hands to the water logged home of an elderly person etc.

If you KNOW someone that needs this kind of help Just reach out!
New to area. Do we need to register student for 2017 Fish Camp?
