SBPC members provide input to the principal on a wide variety of subjects, with an aim of improving the achievement of all students.
The committees address such areas as planning, curriculum, budgeting, staff development, staffing patterns and school organization. Elections for parent representatives are held every fall. Parents can only serve as a parent representative at the campus where they have a child attending school.
If you would like to find out more information about the council, run for one of the parent seats or nominate someone for one of the seats, please call Bagdad Elementary at 512-570-5900 no later than Friday, September 4.

|Bagdad Receives Overall Exemplary Rating for 2013-2014|
In 2013, the 83rd Legislature added an additional accountability performance process for each school district and campus in Texas. Each school district must evaluate the district’s performance, and the performance of each campus, in community and student engagement. Additionally, a performance rating must be assigned to the district and each campus, based on the evaluation, which includes one of the following: exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable for both overall performance and for each individual evaluation category. Bagdad Elementary was rated "Overall Exemplary!"
The district’s online tool, txConnect, allows LISD parents to easily monitor their child’s achievement throughout the school year. LISD parents can use txConnect to access their child’s grades and assignments, view and print their child’s interim progress reports and report cards, view their child’s STAAR (or TAKS) results, immunizations, attendance and student discipline reports. And beginning this year, parents can use txConnect to view, update and print first-day packet forms. Connecting to your child’s learning through txConnect is a simple, two-step process.

Parents: Did you know?
FOODS OF MINIMAL NUTRITIONAL VALUE
Certain foods are restricted at school, except for three designated days of the year. Those three days are: December 19 at our holiday parties; February 13 at our Valentine's parties; and at our end-of-year celebrations (date to be determined).
Parents may bring cupcakes to school for their child's birthday; however, they must first contact their child's classroom teacher to make arrangements for the date on which they will bring the cupcakes.
Regular School Attendance is Very Important!
Please keep in mind that regular attendance helps to ensure that students are receiving the instruction needed to succeed in school.
Also, did you know that LISD loses an average of about $38 a day for each student who is marked as absent? Parents can help by scheduling appointments before or after school hours.
