I remain grateful to the Board of Trustees and the greater SISD community for providing me the opportunity to lead the continued growth and development of our remarkable school district. By working closely with our Trustees, district leaders, faculty and staff, students, parents, and community as a whole, I firmly believe we will collaboratively take our district to the next level and lead the march to becoming the best school system in the nation.
We have a rich history of innovation and success that will serve as the foundation for the future achievement of our students and staff. The high standards of excellence already in place throughout the district are a direct reflection of the strong leadership in SISD, which includes our campus principals, district support staff, and Board of Trustees. Not surprisingly, our board was named the 2012 Region 19 Board of the Year for its members’ commitment to maintaining high standards of ethical leadership and student achievement.
Looking ahead, much work remains to be done in order for us to reach our primary goal of ensuring that 100% of our students graduate from high school prepared for the college and career of their choice. To reach this goal, the following Strategic Plan has been developed with input from all stakeholders.
I would like to thank everyone in Team SISD who shared their feedback on the current state of our district as well as ideas on how to move our district forward. I am inspired by the level of engagement of our community and the interest from all stakeholders in the success of our children. The input we received has proven invaluable in developing a true community plan with a shared direction for our students, faculty and staff, parents, and community. I am confident the strength of our collaboration will enable us to inspire students, teachers, and the community at-large through fresh, innovative approaches that will establish SISD as the best district in the nation!
