  • Primary Goal 1: Increase Student Performance HISD student performance will demonstrate growth evidenced on state and national standardized assessments, thus narrowing achievement gaps to graduate all students equipped for college and career readiness. Any grade level, or subject with more than an 8% achievement gap will be targeted for improvement.

    Supporting Goal 2: Create and Support a Positive District Culture Through clear articulation of the district’s mission, HISD will create a powerful sense of community and shared direction among personnel, parents, students, and the public. Parent and community input is valued and utilized to improve a sense of cooperation. Realizing the value of our human assets, HISD will work to attract and retain the best teachers and staff members while creating an environment in which they may flourish. * Evidence of attainment -- Employee satisfaction survey will be utilized annually to evaluate and improve employee satisfaction. The survey will address employee perceptions of job satisfaction, professional development, work environment, and ask for input in areas identified as in need of improvement.

Public confidence regarding thte safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority. Support increases as a result of district transparency, all-inclusive accountability, effective communication, and meaningful community engagement. * Evidence of attainment -- Parent/community survey will be utilized annually to evaluate and improve community relations.
