EAST POINT ES PRINCIPAL DANA BOYD APPOINTED TO NATIONAL ASSESSMENT GOVERNING BOARD
Dana Boyd, principal of East Point Elementary School in the Ysleta Independent School District (YISD), was among six U.S. education leaders and former governors who were appointed Thursday to serve on the nonpartisan National Assessment Governing Board by U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
In her role on the Governing Board, Boyd will help set policy for The Nation’s Report Card – or the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) – which provides data on student performance to the public and to education policymakers at the national, state and local levels, officials said.
Boyd’s four year-term on the Governing Board begins Oct. 1. Other members include governors, state legislators, local and state school officials, educators and researchers, business representatives and members of the general public.

Parental Engagement Nights Offered Throughout the Year
At East Point Elementary, we offer many Parental Engagement Nights throughout the year. Further, this year we will have a few Academic Parent Teacher Teams (APTT) Nights throughout the year as well. APPT nights are parent engagement nights that create a team with the parent and teacher. Data is shown to the parents and goals are created. Finally, activities are made to meet those goals and are given to the parents.
Other parental engagement nights that are offered are:
16 de Septiembre Night, Science Night, Sweetheart Dance, Numbers and Nachos Night, Read Across America Night, EngageMe Showcase Night.
Our mission is to create a safe, all-inclusive learning environment where high expectations, collaboration and accountability lead to student success.
We, the Spartan Community, commit ourselves to create an engaging 21st Century learning community. We will implement and utilize best practices in and out of the classroom while collaboratively creating leaders in a safe environment for all students.
