Play-off Bound Newman Smith Trojans!

Congratulations to the Newman Smith Trojans on an amazing regular football season. Newman Smith ended District 10-4A play with a 6-1 record and the regular season with an 8-2 record. The football team is headed to the plays-off for the first time since 1983.

In the UIL 4-A Division 1 Play-offs, the Trojans will take on the Sherman High School Bearcats from District 9-4A in a Bi-District match-up on Fri., Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. The game will be at Plano ISD’s Clark Stadium, 6600 Stadium Drive, Plano.

Presale tickets are available at Newman Smith, 2335 North Josey Lane, Carrollton during school hours this week. Tickets are $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for students. General admission tickets at the gate on Friday night will cost $7.00 for adults and students.

Now, if you can’t make it to Clark Stadium for the game, C-FB ISD has you covered. You can come back to Blogabilities at 7:30 p.m. on Friday night, and we’ll be blogging live with text, photos and maybe even some video.

Or, if you like live play-by-play, C-FB ISD’s Vince Cowdrey will be calling the game on, just click on cfb-tv.

Now, if you are a TimeWarner cable subscriber in Carrollton or Farmers Branch, you hear Vince’s play-by-play announcing on Channel 95.

Or, if you subscribe to Verizon Cable, you can hear Vince’s play-by-play on Channel 38. As Vince says, “This broadcast will take you back to the days of ‘radio play-by-play.’”

We hope that you can come out to Plano’s Clark Stadium to cheer on the Trojans, but if not, C-FB ISD will bring the Trojans to you via several technologies.

Go Trojans!

High Student Achievement for All - New Strategic Plan

C-FB ISD has a new Strategic Improvement Plan. The plan is our guide to meet our one goal: high achievement for all students.

We developed four supporting objectives to accomplish our goal. They are:
• Continuously increase student achievement
• Continuously improve the learning environment for students and staff
• Continuously increase operational effectiveness
• Continuously increase stakeholder confidence and support of our school system

And, under each objective, we established performance measures and targets to meet the objectives.

Along with the objectives, we are sharing our vision and mission statements as well as our beliefs and principles in the plan. The only change that has made to these items is our vision statement.

C-FB ISD’s Vision Statement
All students will meet the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) at the proficient or commended level and graduate college-ready and/or workforce-ready without remediation.

Check out the complete Strategic Improvement Plan plus the School Board Policies that outline the requirements for the plan.
