Crockett Teachers Survey Results - 95% of Teachers report "Overall, my school is a good place to work and learn."
To do their jobs well, educators need supportive school environments where they are valued, are trusted, and can collaborate to improve instruction. The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) AISD Survey is a unique opportunity to gather information about school conditions from those whose views matter most—practicing educators. Respondents are asked for their perceptions on a variety of issues related to student achievement and staff retention, including Overall Climate, Use of Time, Leadership, Facilities and Resources, Student Behavior Management, Community Support, Professional Development, Instructional Practice, and Achievement Press.

Crockett’s Miller sets AISD rushing mark
Crockett senior Justin Miller set the Austin school district’s career rushing record during a 189-yard performance against Bastrop on Thursday night. Miller trailed Anderson’s Paul Mosley by 140 yards at the beginning of the evening, but he eclipsed Mosley’s career mark of 4,054 yards during the third quarter of the Cougars’ 51-28 loss. The Crockett coaching staff will need to verify Miller’s stats from the game, but the third-year letterman had 3,914 rushing yards on his resume prior to the battle with the Bears.
