    How do I know if I need to enroll??

    If you are teaching K-3 in 2024-2025 and have not yet completed the Texas Reading Academies, you will need to enroll in the June 2025 LISD Cohorts. 

    The following positions will need to enroll:

    • 1st Year Teachers for 2024-2025
    • Teachers new to Texas with out-of-state certifications
    • Experienced teachers moving into K-3 positions, K-5 Special Ed positions (SDI, BIC, ALS, AA, Dyslexia, Comm), LAS, or Title Coach/Facilitator Positions that have never completed the RA 
    • New Elementary Principals 
    • Associate teachers that move into Alt Cert by April 2025


    How do I register??

    • The registration survey will open in February 2025.


    When do I attend training??

    For all new hires to LISD for the 2024-2025 school year, your Cohort will start in June 2025.  TEA usually opens the course for registration and training on the second Monday of June and you will be required to attend 2 days in person in June.  Please consider when planning vacation dates. 

    The estimated dates of training will be:

    June 9 - 12  2025

    Unfortunately, until TEA releases the dates, we will not know the exact two dates.

    There will not be July or August dates, so please keep these dates available in order to meet the state requirements. 


    We look forward to working with you!
