Accelerated Learning Committee (ALC) Meeting

ALC Committee
  • Given the disruptions of the 2020-2021 school year, the Texas Legislature has given parents new rights to help support their children. House Bill 4545, signed on June 16, 2021, provides additional learning opportunities for students who did not meet standards on the STAAR exam. One of those learning supports is extra tutoring.

    What would this tutoring provide?

    The law requires that the tutoring is provided to students individually or in a group of no more than three students. School systems can also ask parents to agree to a larger tutoring group to support their child.

    Why is my child receiving this tutoring? 

    Any child in grades 3-8 who did not pass STAAR or end-of-course (EOC) assessments will receive tutoring in the upcoming school year. Your child did not meet approaches or higher on one or more STAAR or STAAR EOC assessments, so he/she will receive tutoring in the upcoming year.

    What is next? 

    Before we can provide tutoring to your child, we need to facilitate an Accelerated Learning Committee meeting. This meeting is where we will build a specific tutoring plan for your child with the input from you, a teacher, and an administrator. It will take no longer that 15 minutes and can be conducted either fact-to-face at Franklin or via Zoom, and it is mandatory that this meeting be conducted according to HB4545.
