Winters Independent School District
December 14, 2016
This letter is to inform you that Winters Elementary School has been placed on the Public Education Grant (PEG) list for the 2016-2017 school year. In 1995, the Texas Legislature created the Public Education Grant (PEG) Program [TEC 29.201-29.205]. The PEG program permits parents with children attending schools that are on the PEG list to transfer their children to other schools in other districts for the following school year.
Under the State Accountability testing system—State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR), districts and campuses are rated Met Standard or Improvement Required. As a District, Winters ISD is rated Met Standard. Winters Elementary School was rated Met Standard
A copy of performance is located at WISD website under required postings. The website is:
Winters ISD and Winters Elementary School have taken action toward creating a stronger school. Personnel changes, professional development, data-driven instruction aligned to the TEKS and STAAR categories, increased opportunities for students to receive instructional interventions, working with a professional service provider on the campus action plan have all been implemented.
To obtain a transfer into another district, parents must contact, in writing, the district to which the student desires to transfer. This letter, as well as the PEG list which can be found on the TEA website, provides adequate justification for the transfer request. In addition, the student will need to be withdrawn from the home district. Another district does not have to accept students who request to transfer into it under the PEG program, but the district must follow the same protocols it follows in allowing or denying any requests for transfer from other districts. The refusal cannot be based on PEG in isolation.
Winters Independent School District is dedicated to the success of its students and will continue its commitment to provide a quality education.
