This past school year went by fast and it seems at times as if I have just started on the job, yet here we are starting a new school year. Even though it went by fast, it was quite an eventful school year with many positive things occurring in our district.
First, we became a District of Innovation which will open up opportunities for our students and staff as well as the flexibility to help foster these opportunities. As we move forward with this, our goal is utilize creative scheduling as well as our staff's abilities to better serve our students and their needs.
Second, my goal since arriving in YISD has been to work cooperatively with our community and our stakeholders to better serve our children in this district. This goal has also included continuous improvement in our communication both within our district and with our stakeholders. Through meetings and efforts to involve parents, businesses, and community members we have made strides in the right direction. This is also being accomplished through the use of technology by utilizing our Facebook page, updating our website, and utilizing communication apps such as Remind.
The third area or goal has been to bring Yorktown ISD back to prominence and help it become a district of distinction. By focusing on our students and their needs, we are accomplishing this by fostering and facilitating an environment of learning, engagement, and commitment . We are increasing our student's college and career readiness, their ability to communicate, and their technological skills. Through continued efforts such as these, YISD will ensure our students are ready for their future.
I look forward to continuing to work with our staff and community to provide our students the greatest of opportunities and education.
