During its April 16 Board meeting, Aldine ISD Trustees approved a Campus Program Charter Contract with YES Prep that will allow Aldine and YES Prep to work together to prepare students to succeed in college, work and life. The YES Prep Board approved the contract at their board meeting on April 18.
The district’s administrative team, led by Superintendent Dr. Wanda Bamberg, Deputy Superintendent Dr. Archie Blanson, Area Superintendent Dr. Todd Davis and leaders from YES Prep began working on the partnership in the fall of 2012.
Beginning in the 2013-14 school year, YES Prep will operate a campus program charter (YES Prep Hoffman) in a portion of Hoffman Middle School. The campus within a campus will use the programs and curriculum of YES Prep and, as required by law, the curriculum will incorporate the Texas Essential of Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The students enrolled in YES Prep Hoffman will be and remain AISD students.
The initial class will consist of 140 sixth-graders. Students from Caraway Intermediate, Stehlik Intermediate, Wilson Intermediate, Hill Intermediate and Houston Academy will have the opportunity to submit an application for one of the 140 slots that will be open.
The program will grow one grade level at a time to serve 420 students by the 2015-2016 school year. In 2016 YES Prep and Aldine ISD will open YES Prep Eisenhower to serve students in grades 9-12. YES Prep will hire and pay their own faculty.
The program will be under the leadership of a “school director,” who will be employed by Yes Prep. Aldine ISD will provide transportation and Yes Prep Hoffman students will eventually be allowed to participate in extra curricular activities offered at Hoffman Middle School.
Students who attend Yes Prep Hoffman will have a longer school day. Additionally, parents and students will have to sign a contract with Yes Prep, and abide by Yes Prep’s rules and regulations.
The partnership will be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure program goals are being met.
