Principal's Message

Principal's Message Image
The J.D. Hall Learning Center at Rocky Crest serves a dual purpose in meeting the needs of students for whom the traditional educational setting provides challenges. Whether the home campus sent them to redirect their behavior or a student chose to recover credits through the Academic Options program, our purpose is to provide a caring learning environment where staff is sensitive to the needs of the whole child.

We will provide an outstanding and positive alternative education program to all students. The concurrent use of prescriptive interventions and resources to aid in the development of appropriate social skills and proper decision-making strategies with effective instructional strategies will allow students to realize their potential and prepare them for self-sustaining success.

Additionally, our staff will provide interventions that demonstrate the development of confidence and respectful character traits. It is our goal to provide opportunities for students to participate in projects, sessions, and activities that encourage them to think critically and evaluate the impact of their decision, explore and discover their talents, interests, and aspirations. We will use our non-traditional setting to meet the needs of all students. We will successfully transition students back to their home campuses or prepare them to graduate from the Academic Options program.

Students in grades 1-5 will receive instruction in a self-contained setting. Students in grade 6-12 will receive instruction in the core academic and elective courses by several secondary teachers. To insure that our students stay on course while they are with us and do not fall behind the home campus instruction, teachers will follow the District’s curriculum guide and will collaborate with teachers at the home campus by attending weekly meetings.

Various community agencies will visit our campus to deliver life skills sessions for students and/or parents on a rotating schedule. One hundred percent of our 6th – 12th grade students receive group and or individual counseling.  Students in grades 1st – 5th receive individual counseling as needed. These sessions are designed to provide resources for the family and assist students in making good choices so that they can Leave a Lasting Legacy.

New District Anti-Truancy Initiative Removes Barriers for Student Success

Due to the receipt of the MetroTex Association of Realtors Charitable Trust Public Education Grant grant and Lancaster ISD Truancy Coordinator Dona Mitchell’s anti-truancy initiative, four campuses now have a new washer and dryer for teachers to utilize at any time throughout the day. Mitchell, who applied for the grant, believes that this is a major step in truancy prevention and will help teachers continue to remove barriers and fulfill the needs of students.
