Accelerated Learning Committees

In the most recent legislative session, the Texas legislature passed HB4545, which expands requirements for accelerated instruction for all students who failed or did not take STAAR or EOC exams in the 2020-2021 school year. As a part of this bill, HB4545 requires campuses to hold Accelerated Learning Committees (ALC) for students who failed or did not take 3rd, 5th or 8th grade Math or Reading STAAR or STAAR Alternate 2.

For our context this year, that is our rising 6th and 9th grade students.  We will host our campus virtual meetings on the following date and times to go over the interventions that these students will be receiving this school year:

If you would like to arrange a one-on-one meeting, please reach out to the Director of Academics at Kellie.Thompson@yesprep.org.

Supply Chain + Lunch Meals

Supply Chain!!  It’s impacting everything.  From October 4 – October 14, YES Prep students will receive only 1 menu option for lunch daily.  Our vendor is confident that the supply chain issues for procuring certain types of meals will be rectified by the date listed above.

Common Assessments

October 11 - 13

Students are taking their Common Assessments starting on Monday, October 11 through October 12. October 13 will serve as a makeup day and if needed, October 14. 

What are Common Assessments?

YES Prep administers common assessments to monitor progress in students’ coursework and college readiness. These assessments also furnish important information about students’ progress and help YES Prep staff better support students in their journey to college.

Key Word:

  • Assessments = Tests


  • We ask that you refrain from picking up your students from school on testing days, there's no early release on testing days
  • Students should come to school with their laptops charged - some testing will be done using their laptop

This past week, October 4 - 8, we held a spirit week for students in anticipation of our Common Assessments happening next week (October 11 - 13).
