Houston Independent School District (HISD)
Recent data shows the number of HISD students earning college credit on Advanced Placement exams and posting top scores on the SAT college entrance exam has never been higher. The Houston Independent School District is committed to providing a high-quality education for every child, regardless of where they live or what school they choose to attend. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves in rigorous academic courses designed to prepare them for college and meaningful careers. Recent data shows the number of HISD students earning college credit on Advanced Placement exams and posting top scores on the SAT college entrance exam has never been higher. In addition, the district's graduation rate is at an all-time high, and the dropout rate is at an all-time low.
Strategic Direction: Refining HISD's vision and goals.
Its purpose is not to list all of the district’s current activities or past accomplishments. Rather, it is to describe as clearly as possible the major areas of focus for HISD over the next several years. Thousands of people—parents, students, employees, and community members—have participated in the process, recognizing the stake that we all have in the success of the district. With their help, we have identified five core initiatives that will together enable us to transform HISD:
- Effective Teacher in Every Classroom
- Effective Principal in Every School
- Rigorous Instructional Standards and Supports
- Data-Driven Accountability
- Culture of Trust through Action
The bottom line for the success or failure of this plan will be student achievement. More specifically, our goal is to ensure that all HISD students graduate from high school ready to succeed in the college and career of their choice. If we do that, we will become the best school district in America.
