Hays CISD is looking to hire the best people, and we feel like YOU can help us recruit them. If you know someone who would be a great addition to the Hays CISD team, encourage them to attend our 2021 Virtual Job Fair on Wednesday, January 13th. Interested job seekers can go to: https://app.brazenconnect.com/a/hays/e/DJekE to create an account and complete the registration form.
We are happy to announce that Hays CISD will be able to continue to offer breakfast and lunch to all students, districtwide, at no cost to the students. This program, funded by a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) block grant, was set to expire at the end of 2020, but has been extended to cover the remainder of the school year. Important: Even though meals are being offered to all students at no cost, we still need your help by filling out the free and reduced meal application (https://www.hayscisd.net/Page/311). The district and individual campuses receive federal funding for critical programs and staffing based on the percentage of students who would ordinarily qualify for free and reduced meals. A reduction in the number of students who are recorded as qualifying for free or reduced-price meals could result in a reduction of federal funding. If you have not already filled out your application for this year, please do so at the URL provided.
The Hays CISD Board of Trustees has adopted a resolution advocating that teachers and public school employees be designated as essential frontline workers and given appropriate vaccine priority. The resolution was delievered to state leaders following its adoption at the Board's regular meeting on December 14, 2020.
In partnership with our Hays CISD PTA Council, we have created a video for parents and staff. We hope this video will inspire people to join your PTAs and become active on your campus. The PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. Our local PTAs play an important role in fundraising for curriculum-based programs and social events. Teachers, staff, parents, grandparents and community members are all encouraged to join PTA. Get on board at your campus! To join: https://www.joinpta.org/
