Whole Child Health Initiative
Schools play an essential role in shaping young people’s social, emotional and physical development in the United States from 5-17. Recent school leaders and public health professionals have advocated for closer coordination between education and public health sectors to better address whole child outcomes.
The Whole Child Initiative provides multifaceted support systems designed to maximize students’ cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being. Guided by ASCD’s Whole Child Tenets and ROC the Future Alliance’s Systems Partner frameworks, this approach assists students in becoming healthy learners who will lead in our constantly shifting world.
Skyward FBISD is committed to the safety of its staff members and students. If an employee tests positive for COVID-19, they are advised to report the result via the FBISD Wellness Screener in order to receive isolation guidance as well as their return-to-work date. Licensed Professional Counselors are also available within the District who can offer additional counselling services or referrals as needed.
Career and Technical Education
CTE (Career and Technical Education) has evolved since your grandfather took vocational classes. Now, CTE can be found in middle and secondary schools as well as post-secondary institutions like community and technical colleges; while some theory remains, its primary emphasis lies on developing hands-on experience through hands-on projects and practice tests.
These skills can be applied across industries. For instance, the accounting career cluster equips students to handle large-scale bookkeeping, tax preparation and accounts receivable on behalf of both businesses and nonprofit entities. Meanwhile, management career cluster teaches them how to run an entire enterprise from planning, budgeting and human resources management as well as marketing efforts.
Though career and tech ed programs offer an ideal alternative to traditional academic tracks, critics have claimed they still contribute to gender and socioeconomic disparities in the workforce. Studies demonstrate that just having a high-school diploma alone does not ensure success in today’s modern economy.
Student Recruitment strives to give prospective students all of the information necessary to make an informed decision when selecting their university. In order to do this, it works closely with Public Affairs and Communications (PAC) to deliver key messages through various communication channels – including websites, print media publications, various social media platforms, videos and campus visit events.
Student recruiters understand the unique challenges associated with choosing a university and are adept at anticipating any questions and/or concerns students might have about applying. By communicating this information in a manner which feels tailored specifically for each individual student, recruiters help ensure they don’t feel like just another faceless number in an inexhaustible pool of candidates.
An effective student recruitment plan is key for any school’s admissions process, helping to focus the work of staff members and ensure all efforts align with what’s most crucial for an efficient enrollment funnel.

In 1987-1988 and 1990-91, more than half of elementary and combined schools serving high-minority public and private school populations offered extended-day programs, compared with approximately 25 percent for low-minority schools. Urban areas had higher proportions offering extended day programs than rural ones. Less than half of schools offering extended day services charged fees; this proportion increased between 1987-88 and 1990-91 and public school offerings had more fee-based offerings.
