    Annual Report

    A public hearing of the Annual Report was held. The full report, which includes the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR), is available on the district website and through TEA. 

    Students Recognized for Citizenship

    The board recognized November Jack Frost Citizens of the Month from East View and Georgetown High Schools. Those students are:

    East View High School

    Kenyah Simmons

    Georgetown High School

    Mattingly Palmer
    Ellery (Leo) Lashley

    GHS and EVHS All-State Band and Choir Students Recognized

    The Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) sponsors the Texas All-State audition process to promote students' dedication to their musical knowledge and skill and to encourage TMEA member directors to support their students in this development. Beginning each fall, over 70,000 high school students across the state audition in their TMEA Region. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. A select group of musicians advances to compete against musicians from other Regions in their TMEA Area. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in one of 15 Texas All-State Bands, Orchestras, and Choirs. 

    Unfortunately, this year’s state-level performances were unable to happen in person due to COVD-19 but it doesn’t change the fact that our students achieved this level of recognition, the highest honor a high school student can achieve in this area.
