Campus Accountability Results
What an amazing first week of school! Things are off to a fast start. We have some exciting news to share with everyone. TEA recently released campus accountability results and we would like to share that information with our community. Each campus is eligible for “Met Standard” or “Not Met Standard” and a 9-10 campus is also eligible for 6 distinctions. To earn a distinction, a campus has to rank in the top 25% of an identified group of 40 similar campuses in 33% or more of the eligible indicators. Jasper’s results are below:
- Met Standard
- Earned All 6 Eligible Distinctions for Academic Achievement
- Postsecondary Readiness
- Student Progress
- Closing Performance Gaps
As a special note, not only did Jasper receive all 6 eligible distinctions, we met 100% of the eligible indicators! That means we ranked in the top 25% of our 40 similar campus group in all indicators spread out across the 6 eligible distinctions. That is such a testament to the value of education in this incredible community! However, we all know that this is not the only thing we pride ourselves on here in the Jasper community or in Plano ISD. These test results are one piece of measuring the real work happening at Jasper High School on a daily basis. We also take pride in our extracurricular involvement and successes as well as our student citizenship, pride, entrepreneurial creativity, and service. We are proud of our the entire Jasper learning community’s effort to educate the whole student!

PTSA Meeting and Meet the Principal
What is "block lunch"? What is "homework free Thursday"?
Thursday, September 10 at 11:30, Jasper HS principal, Dr. Matthew Endsley, will answer those questions and more! Join us at the first Jasper PTSA General Meeting of the year in Room 1100. Looking forward to seeing you there!
There is still time to join the Jasper PTSA.
Single family memberships are $15.50, additional family members are $8.50. Students who are members in both 9th and 10th grades are eligible for a senior scholarship.
How do we use those funds? Last year, the Jasper PTSA was able to support the school by purchasing items such as: science dissection specimens, math supplies, band sound equipment, and orchestra uniforms. We give away 2 Senior Scholarships per year. We support the band, orchestra, choir, theater, athletics, drill team, and other clubs. We support the teachers by purchasing things from their wish lists for their classrooms, providing lunch, and treats throughout the year. We pay for guest speakers for student assemblies. We provide speakers for College Night, Driver's License Eduction Night, and other programs. We fund the materials needed for spirit week. We orchestrate JagFest lunches, so the students and teachers can enjoy a school-wide outdoor lunch.
Please join today, at jasperptsa.org, so we can continue to support your student's learning and activities at Jasper.
