As the proud superintendent of the Socorro Independent School District, I can assure parents that Team SISD is the right choice for endless opportunities for student success.
SISD’s brand involves a spirit of teamwork and high accountability, which has enabled us to produce results not many urban school districts or charter schools can match.
Through the leadership of our outstanding Board of Trustees and administrative team, we have taken proactive measures with our district’s strategic directions to implement and maintain superior safety measures, open communication, and, above all, unprecedented student success.
We recently conducted our third comprehensive Campus Climate Survey, which I spearheaded four years ago in the district. I thank all of the parents, students, and campus employees who participated in the 2017 Campus Climate Survey!
Our safety measures across the district remain second to none, with vigilant systems in place to check in visitors at schools, a sophisticated surveillance system at every campus in the district, and ongoing District Safety Committee meetings to be highly prepared for emergency situations.
Our data-driven culture has tremendously improved student academic performance to surpass the state average in all 17 STAAR exams for grades three through eight for three years in a row.
Other initiatives implemented to increase student achievement include Operation College Bound, Walk for Success, Dual Credit Scholarship Program, Thrive Digital Curriculum, our highly regarded WIN Academy, and the most early college high school programs in the region.
In addition, SISD has been cited in the last year as a model district by lawmakers and education leaders as well as earned local, state, and national accolades for pioneering programs focused on academic excellence.
While we are proud of our many achievements, we remain humble public servants working to ensure every student succeeds. On behalf of Team SISD, I thank you wholeheartedly for your support!
