Aransas County ISD believes that student preparation for a productive, fulfilling life is the obligation and responsibility of the family, student, school, and community.
Aransas County ISD has been awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant, which allows us to offer ACISD students the Texas Afterschool Center on Education program (Texas ACE) at ACISD schools.
The program's focus is on academic success in the classroom. Instructional activities are offered in conjunction to what is being offered by classroom teachers. Students reaching their fullest academic success is our mission.
The ACE program strives to improve the following:
A variety of program activities are generally offered Monday through Friday on regular school days following the ACISD calendar. Assistance may include homework/tutoring assistance or enrichment activities geared to students' special interests. Snacks will also be provided for students during the program.
We have exciting news to share regarding school supplies for ACISD students!
With the help of designated grant funds and the generosity of the Education Foundation, ACISD will be able to purchase Pre-K through 12th grade school supplies for the next two years. Principals provided lists at the end of the school year, and those will be used to purchase supplies through our local HEB and Walmart stores and delivered to each campus. Backpacks and lunch boxes are not included in this, but we will have a supply if a student is in need. We hope this will provide continued relief for our families as they continue to recover and rebuild.

The FITNESSGRAM physical fitness assessment is based not on athletic ability, but on good health.

No. Where FITNESSGRAM data is collected by the state, the data will have student names removed so that individual scores may not be identified for a particular student. That data will be used to study trends and not to judge individual students.
No. FITNESSGRAM uses Healthy Fitness Zones (HFZ) to determine your overall physical fitness. HFZs are not based on class averages or any other peer comparisons. The standards are set specifically for boys and girls of different ages using the best available research. If your score falls within the HFZ, it means you have achieved the recommended level of fitness for your age. If your score falls below the HFZ, you should engage in activities that will help you improve.
