Revisions to CTE
Earlier this semester, McKinney ISD initiated a plan to move certain Career and Technology Education programs to McKinney North High School. Following several weeks of careful analysis and further deliberation, the McKinney ISD Board of Trustees and administration have decided not to proceed with the plan. As a result, students affected by the change are encouraged to complete a new course verification form if they would like to change their course schedule for the 2010-2011 school year. Only students affected by this change will be afforded the opportunity to change his/her schedule.
A letter will be mailed to incoming 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students impacted by the change and these students will be encouraged to complete and turn in a new course verification form to his/her counselor, no later than Friday, May 14. Students already zoned for McKinney North High School will not receive course verification forms.
New course registration forms for students affected by this change are available in the middle school and high school counselor’s office. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may have caused and we appreciate your support. We have attached a complete list of the courses impacted by the change at the bottom of this document. The list also includes the new 2010-2011 location for the courses impacted by the change. Feel free to contact your child’s counselor at the school they presently attend.
Transportation will continue to be offered for students attending McKinney Boyd High School or McKinney High School, and participating in CTE courses offered only at McKinney North High School.

"In fact, we believe that the primary source of the state's budget imbalance is not slower revenue growth, but rather, built-in budget imbalances that simply become more evident during periods of economic decline or slow revenue growth. Chief among these potential sources of persistent imbalances is education funding. As we have said for the past four years, the school finance reforms that the legislature approved in 2006 created a long-term source of budget pressure for the state, in our opinion."
