Every Child Has Access Today, schools are faced with a plethora of challenges from making sure students are fed when they are not on campus, to health and safety concerns, to kids having kids. Creating an environment for students to be successful begins by discovering, understanding, and knowing their critical needs. Based on those critical needs, it then involves determining pathways that ensure students have the skills necessary to succeed. To solve this complex situation will require convening key stakeholders, creating strategies, leveraging resources, and activating the community. In short, it calls for a multi-pronged approach with various partners. True transformation in our education system begins with understanding, and understanding comes from knowing the needs of our student population. The Longview Chamber of Commerce has created an initiative – Every Child Has Access – to convene partnerships which can meet those individually identified needs. Every Child Has Access is a collective impact project that will address the overall well-being of students during non-school hours in an effort to create a continuous environment conducive to learning and health.

In other words, each child should have a minimum academic arts, science, mathematics, and history-social science, regardless of the school they attend. For example, in mathematics, children in third grade need to develop an understanding of multiplication and division, including strategies for multiplication and division within 100. In reading/language arts, fifth graders are expected to quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

At this age, it is common for them to become distant from their parents.

High School Most young people enter high school between 14 and 15 years of age. To ensure they graduate with a high school diploma, students must complete grades 9-12 and pass all required testing (may differ between locations). Each district has specific

graduation requirements including mastery of Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). It is important for you to know which classes and the number of credits the student must complete to meet such requirements. There are specific courses each student must take. They will have the opportunity to take other classes that will also apply toward their graduation credits. Parents should be aware of the differences between these types of classes because courses taken can be a key factor when young people apply to a college or university.
