IMPACT Student Nominated for the Congress of Future Medical Leaders

Kyla Gijan, a tenth grader at IMPACT Early College High School has been selected as a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders on November 21-22, 2020.

 

The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields. The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country interested in these careers, to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.

 

Kyla's nomination was signed by Dr. Mario Capecchi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine and the Science Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists to represent Texas based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.

 

During the two-day Congress, Kyla Gijan will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners talk about leading medical research; be given advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans on what to expect in medical school; witness stories told by patients who are living medical miracles; be inspired by fellow teen medical science prodigies; and learn about cutting-edge advances and the future in medicine and medical technology.

 

This is a crucial time in America when more doctors and medical scientists who are even better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially are needed. Focused, bright and determined students like Kyla Gijan are the future, and she will receive mentoring and guidance.

 

The Academy offers free services and programs to students who want to become physicians or go into medical science. Some of the services and programs the Academy offers are online social networks through which future doctors and medical scientists can communicate; opportunities for students to be guided and mentored by physicians and medical students; and communications for parents and students on college acceptance and finances, skills acquisition, internships, career guidance and much more.

 

The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists was founded on the belief that we must identify prospective medical talent at the earliest possible age and help these students acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of this vital career. Based in Washington, D.C. and with offices in Boston, MA, the Academy was chartered as a nonpartisan, taxpaying institution to help address this crisis by working to identify, encourage and mentor students who wish to devote their lives to the service of humanity as physicians and medical scientists.

October 5, 2020

Dear Parents,

As we all work together for our students’ success during this difficult time, we want to make sure you are aware of the following information regarding your student’s attendance.

Face-to-Face Learning:
Students who choose to return to face-to-face instruction will be held accountable for their daily attendance. Attendance will be recorded daily, and absences will be communicated to the parents.

Virtual Learning:
Students who are engaging in virtual instruction must log in daily. Daily attendance is taken during scheduled time(s) and connected to daily student progress as a part of the Goose Creek CISD plan. A student will be counted absent if the student does not have documented engagement.

Students who are absent will have the opportunity to participate in asynchronous instruction for attendance credit. All assignments must be submitted before 11:59 p.m. for the student to receive credit for that school day.

Truancy laws will apply to students who fail to attend school (either on-campus or virtually).

The minimum attendance for class credit rule of Texas Education Code §25.092 will be in effect for the 2020–2021 school year. Students are required to attend at least 90% of their classes (with some exceptions) to receive credit and be promoted. 

Thank you for helping us ensure that your child is in attendance, either on campus or virtually, so that he or she receives credit and has a successful school year.

Estimados Padres de Familia,

Mientras todos trabajamos juntos para el éxito de nuestros estudiantes durante estos momentos difíciles, queremos asegurarnos de que esté al tanto de la siguiente información sobre la asistencia de su estudiante.

Aprendizaje presencial:

Los estudiantes que elijan regresar a la instrucción presencial serán responsables de su asistencia diaria. La asistencia se registrará diariamente y las ausencias se comunicarán a los padres.

Aprendizaje virtual:

Los estudiantes que participan en la instrucción virtual deben iniciar sesión diariamente. La asistencia diaria se toma durante el tiempo programado y se conecta con el progreso diario del estudiante como parte del plan de Goose Creek CISD. Un estudiante se contará como ausente si el estudiante no tiene participación documentada.

Los estudiantes que estén ausentes tendrán la oportunidad de participar en instrucción asincrónica para obtener crédito por asistencia. Todas las asignaciones deben enviarse antes de las 11:59 p.m. para que el estudiante reciba crédito por ese día escolar.

Las leyes de absentismo escolar se aplicarán a los estudiantes que no asistan a la escuela (ya sea en la escuela o a larga distancia).

Las reglas de asistencia mínimas para obtener créditos por las clases según el Código de Educación de Texas §25.092 estará vigente para el año escolar 2020–2021. Los estudiantes deben asistir por lo menos un 90% de sus clases (con algunas excepciones) para recibir crédito y ser promovidos. 

Gracias por ayudarnos a garantizar que su hijo asista, ya sea dentro de la escuela o virtualmente, para que pueda recibir crédito y que tenga un exitoso año escolar.
