Orchestrating Opportunities for Younger Generations

August 17, 2011

Klein Oak student hosts musical instrument drive to benefit KISD elementaries

Klein ISD student Michael Casagrande

Klein ISD student Michael Casagrande

Spring, TX. — Klein ISD student Michael Casagrande has not stopped playing the double bass since he was in the fifth grade strings program at Hassler Elementary. As he works toward becoming an Eagle Scout, the Klein Oak High School sophomore has found a way to share his passion for music and give back to the community by hosting a musical instrument drive with proceeds benefiting KISD elementary students.

The instrument drive will take place from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2011, in the Klein Oak orchestra room. All instruments will be accepted, as well as monetary contributions that will either be used for repairs or to potentially purchase new instruments. Donations are tax-deductible, and all donors will receive a receipt for their contribution.

“Orchestra is a huge part of my life,” expressed Casagrande, who has aspirations of one day becoming an orchestra director in Klein. “It has been such a great experience for me that I would like to help introduce this to other fifth grade students in our district.

“Unfortunately, there are many children who would love the opportunity to learn to play an instrument, but with tough economic times, their families may not be able to afford to pay for the rental of an instrument,” he noted.

Casagrande is responsible for organizing and facilitating this project, and he is also working very closely with Monte Mast, director of
fine arts at Klein ISD. Casagrande’s career goals came as no surprise to Mast, who noted that currently 11 percent of fine arts teachers in the district are KISD graduates.

Upon the completion of the event, Mast and his staff will work together to identify students across the district that will most benefit from the donated items. Mast said these instruments will open the door for those students who are interested in fine arts who might not otherwise have had the
opportunity.

“It is really exciting because this is going to be one of those things that keeps on giving, and students for years to come will benefit from this project,” said Mast. “This is a neat project by a kid who found a real enjoyment through music, and we are grateful he has found a way to give back to the larger KISD music community.”

Klein ISD Stays On Track for Success

July 30, 2011

KISD scores in Math, Science and Social Studies increase

Spring, TX. Klein ISD saw district-wide improvement on the 2011 TAKS and was rated as Recognized for the third consecutive year, according to the report released by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). All 39 campuses also continued to successfully meet the State accountability standards, including 11 campuses receiving Exemplary status.

KISD student scores in math and science continue to improve, as 88 and 89 percent were reported passing in 2011, respectively. From 2009-2011, the district has had a three percent score increase in math, while marks in science have grown by five percent during the same time span. Additionally, student scores in social studies have also increased to 97 percent, while reading scores for all students maintained at an impressive 93 percent.

“Klein ISD is moving in a positive direction,” commented Dr. Jim Cain, superintendent at Klein ISD. “Our scores reflect the hard work and dedication by both our students and staff as we continue to work on becoming an Exemplary district. I applaud everyone’s effort and look forward to another successful year.”

Klein was also among the districts in the state to see increases in the graduation completion rates. TEA reported in May that the Class of 2010 soared to 84.3 percent statewide, the highest rate posted during the TAKS-testing era. KISD had a 92.6 percent completion rate, up from 91.7 percent in 2009.

This is the eighth year of the state accountability ratings, and more students across the state are passing the TAKS test and are graduating from high school than ever before. The calculating system changed and now includes 40 indicators used to determine ratings. The system currently rates more students than years past, and includes some students who previously have been omitted. For the first time since the TAKS program began, test results for all special education students are also included in the state accountability program.

Five base indicators are used to determine ratings: (1) percentage of students passing TAKS, (2) performance and progress of ELL students, (3) percentage of students scoring at commended performance levels on TAKS, (4) completion rate for 2010 graduating class, and (5) annual dropout rate for grades 7-8 during the 2009-2010 school year.
