Dear Cityscape employees,These last two years have been both challenging and overwhelming for us all.  All your departments and teams have been pushed beyond their limits.  You have faithfully stayed the course working each day while continuing to accomplish amazing things regardless of the obstacles and challenges.  I am grateful to each of you for all you have done. Cityscape's decrease in enrollment and attendance rates has also been financially challenging this year, but regardless our greatest commodity and asset is you.  With that in mind, I am glad to announce a $1,500 retention bonus which will be paid in your September paycheck for all returning employees.  I know gas, food, rent, and utilities are rising.  This increase will help you adjust to the rising cost of living today.  This increase is for all of you in this email. Also, Cityscape is increasing the bilingual teacher stipend to $9,000.  All current and future bilingual certified teachers will receive this increase in the 2022-2023 school year. Thank you for your continued efforts to Cityscape Schools.  We look forward to an outstanding 2022-2023 school year with you on our team!Yours in Service Changing Cityscapes One Child at a Time,Leonard Brannon

Superintendent letter about Safety and Uvalde

May 26, 2022 As I stated yesterday, we are all deeply saddened concerning the senseless loss of life in Uvalde, Texas. Again, our collective thoughts and prayers are with our fellow Texans who experienced such a horrible tragedy.  Schools should be safe havens in our communities; a place where our students and educators collaborate, grow, and learn. And because it needs to be repeated:  keeping our students safe is our top priority.  Therefore, Cityscape Schools will have an increased security presence at both campuses for the remainder of the school year with off-duty Dallas police officers patrolling inside and outside the buildings intermittently throughout the school day.  I know our Cityscape family stands united in protecting our children as best we can from such senseless violence. May 25, 2022 As soon as I saw the heartbreaking news begin to unfold yesterday from Uvalde, Texas, my heart broke for that school district and community as the unimaginable became a sad reality. It has taken a little bit of time for me to be able to gather my thoughts and reach out to each of you to discuss this tragedy and what it means for us at Cityscape Schools. First and foremost, I want to emphasize that Cityscape joins with all school districts across our state and nation in extending sincere condolences to all those affected by these catastrophic events. Clearly, the effects of such an occurrence will be felt right here at home and many may feel a heightened concern about school safety within the Cityscape community. The school counselor and administrators stand ready to respond to the needs of students, parents and staff. If your child needs support processing what…

Congratulations to the district’s FIRST TIA designations

Cityscape Schools congratulates our first two recipients of the Teacher Incentive Allotment designations and looks forward to more teachers being recognized next year.   Ms. Kimberly Novoa – Buckner Preparatory – Exemplary designation     Ms. Gabriela Espinosa – East Grand Preparatory – Recognized designation   About the Teacher Incentive Allotment  On June 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature passed House Bill 3 (HB3), which was signed into law by Governor Abbott, establishing the optional Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) program. TIA is a Texas Education Agency program, “dedicated to recruiting, supporting, and retaining highly effective teachers in all schools, with particular emphasis on high-needs and rural schools” (Texas Education Agency, 2019).    Why TIA?  Because of its positive impact on both recruitment and retention of high-performing teachers. Two goals of the TIA are to provide incentive pay to highly effective teachers and to attract and retain effective teachers, especially in rural and high-poverty level schools.     In the fall of 2019, superintendent Leonard Brannon formed an exploratory committee to study a new program from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) titled, the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA). After the exploratory committee’s approval to proceed, Mr. Brannon invited the members of the committee to present their findings to the district’s board of directors in January 2020. The board unanimously approved the district to develop an official teacher incentive program and make an application with TEA at the appropriate time.     In the summer of 2020, the district was accepted into the TIA program (Cohort C) and began collecting data to be analyzed in the summer of 2021.  After data was analyzed (fall of 2021), the district submitted two teachers to be designated as one of the three TIA designations: …
