    PfISD announces winner of My Road My Future video contest

     

    May 20, 2019 – A student video from Pflugerville High School raising awareness about the dangers of distracted driving received more than 2,800 views on YouTube last month to be

    named the winner of the My Road My Future PSA contest.

    Students who made the winning video were presented with a trophy from Pflugerville ISD Police and Travis County Emergency Services District #2 during a recognition ceremony at PHS on Friday afternoon.

    Pflugerville High School’s team of Jacob Claxton, Michael Hornsby, Mac Bain, Lily Bitner, Alex Vo and Ava Carrasco won the video contest based on number of views on YouTube after the District announced two finalists in April. The title of their video was “If You Can’t Text and Walk, Why Text and Drive?” and featured students reading text messages on their phones while walking through the halls at school with sound effects from a car crash when they ran into each other and spilled their belongings on the floor.

    The contest was held in partnership between Pflugerville ISD and Travis County Emergency Services District #2. This year marks the second year of the partnership of My Road My Future and the first year of the video contest.

    “My Road My Future has the potential to save lives well beyond prom and graduation season,” PfISD Police Chief Patrick Petherbridge said. “We were impressed by the videos submitted by all the participants and are happy to announce Pflugerville High School as the winner of our first public service announcement contest for distracted driving awareness.”

    In addition to the trophy from police and fire, the winning team’s video will receive special publicity on the school district and fire department’s websites and social media channels. Their video will also be pitched to local press for potential media coverage.

    Video submissions were required to be no longer than one minute and focus on at least one type of distracted driving: visual, manual or cognitive. Common distraction sources include texting, grooming or applying make-up, eating, or reaching for something inside the vehicle such as a personal item, phone, or the control panel.

  • 2019 BrightBytes Technology Survey-We need your input

    Posted by Heike Cook on 4/24/2019 6:30:00 PM

    Pflugerville ISD and Pflugerville High School will once again partner with BrightBytes, an educational research organization, to learn more about our technology use for student learning. In order to better show our growth over the past year and showcase the impact of our initiatives, we will refresh the data we collected in Spring 2018.

    Our goal is to gather metrics on technology access and skills, and on your school’s technology environment, to further understand the connection between technology use and student achievement. The refreshed data will also allow us to prioritize different initiatives based on the changes in our profile. We have a video overview of the BrightBytes Framework data collection available for your viewing.

    We will be asking students in grades 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12, administrators and teachers and your parents to participate by providing input by completing a short questionnaire The survey is available in English and Spanish for students and parents. The survey may be read aloud to students who require assistance. The K-2 campus Principal will need to select 1 student from each 2nd grade classroom to complete the survey. This will ensure a complete Dashboard for all PfISD Campuses.

    The District data collection window is open from April 18 – May 2, 2019.

    Each school is assigned 3 unique questionnaire URLs. One survey link is designed for teachers and administrators; one is designed for students, and the last link is designed for parents. We have also created a parent letter for your use available in English and Spanish

    Your questionnaire survey links are listed below:

    *Students, Grades 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 : http://www.BByt.es/YB24U

    *Parents & Guardians : http://www.BByt.es/YB24P

     

    You and your student's participation is important to us, as it provides us with a complete understanding of your school’s technology use.

  • We need your vote!!

    Posted by Heike Cook on 4/22/2019

    Pflugerville ISD announced its partnership with Travis County Emergency Services District #2 last month for the distracted driving campaign My Road My Future. In conjunction with the campaign, high school students were eligible to participate in a PSA video contest.   Students from two of PfISD’s four high schools have been chosen as finalists for the video contest.  

    Pflugerville High School’s team of Jacob Claxton, Michael Hornsby, Mac Bain, Lily Bitner, Alex Vo and Ava Carrasco won for the Panthers. The title of their video was “If You Can’t Text and Walk, Why Text and Drive?”  

    The winner will be based on the number of views each video receives on YouTube during the final competition window April 9-29 at noon. I have included the link to the PHS video below.  Feel free to watch the video as many times as you please. Share with your friends and help support the Panthers!  

    The winning school will be honored with a trophy from police and fire, and the video will receive special publicity on the school district and fire department’s websites and social media channels—as well as being nominated for potential news coverage by local TV stations and newspapers.
