HISD uses the AESOP Automated Substitute Placement and Absence Management system for teachers to create absences/request substitute teachers and for substitute teachers to search for jobs. For each job a substitute teacher accepts, there is a cut-off time for canceling the job the day of the job. The substitute may have personal reasons for canceling a job (we get sick, too ... things happen to us, too), but the substitute does not have to give a reason for canceling a job as long as the cancelation is within the timeframe allowed. If a substitute cancels a job on the day of a job, the system automatically prevents that substitute from accepting another job anywhere else in the district. I have not had to cancel many jobs, but I have had to cancel two jobs at this school, and it is the only school where someone from the school called me at home (and left messages on my answering machine) to harass me about my decision. Poorly played, Deady staff. Poorly played.

I am in love with Deady Middle School. The programs here make children learn a lot and while still having fun. My daughter and son are recently attending this school and they love it. They have learned a lot and they are barely 6th graders! I think other schools should follow Deady's examples on how to keep a kid busy while learning new things and interacting with other students. Harmony should take some help tips from this school.

Deady is a great school but needs more security my doughter attended 6th grade and she said a lot of fights were going on in the restrooms and that a lot of guys brought unipropiate things to school. Some of the teachers just don't care about the students. she sais that Mrs. johnson is a very good teacher and that all the teachers should follow her steps.

I have a son is attending Deady, he is in 8 th grade he as been there since the 6th grade. My son is one if the lucky ones he is a great student .This year he was 2nd honor roll, he is great in math and scince He is also in the kickstart program he has done very well .My child stayed out of trouable, I keep him very busy ,I chek on him offten , keep in close contact with the teachers ,That really helps. But they have alot of work to do in that school, starting with the staff... they need to learn English . Have more fund raising for this school , We as parent need to help this school, Lets put Deady on the map.More security is needed.

My son currently attends Deady Middle School and I personally think they need to monitor the students a bit more.They get away with so much.Adding the KickStart Program was such a good idea.It keeps him busy and he enjoys it very much.

I personally think that Deady is a good school. Yes it isnt in the safest area, but they do their hardest to insure the student's safety. Their magnet program is wonderful. They really do care about the students. Kipp 3d could take a few pointers from them on how to make learning fun and how not to stress a kid out.

I sent my son to Deadys' and I found out that there is a big problem with dicipline. Nevertheless, I would like to reccoment Mr.Enbal who tried to help my son in Math.

I am pleased with the teachers in the magnet program, they seem to sincerely care about the students. And the KickStart karate program is an asset to the school. But otherwise I don't recommend Deady. Too dangerous, too many gang concerns, the principal is not focused. I'm taking my daughter out next year.

My son attends Deady Middle School and some teachers are good teachers liek the new principal is outstanding. But the officer has at times endangered my son's safety while atttending there. And sometimes I find that the asst principal also seems to coach other students in what to say. While I feel that you must teach the children and discipline is necessary but you should not just pick one out of the crowd and judge him/her and find any excuse to suspend or give them a bad name. I would rate some of the employees need not to be teaching while some are very good. So please take your childs complaints to the heart. Alot of times adults do not want to accept their fault in the issues.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
