Spring Edition of Within our Walls with Terry Grier

Superintendent show highlights district’s focus on “Becoming Great All Over”

The latest edition of HISD’s half-hour television program Within our Walls with Superintendent Terry Grier takes a look at some of the amazing things happening within the walls of HISD’s 276 schools.

The Spring 2013 TV program features some of the district’s efforts toward “Becoming Great all Over” including the progress of HISD’s career academies at six schools, efforts to place an effective principal at every campus and provide a consistent and rigorous education in a safe environment to all students, including those with special needs. 

“Becoming great all over isn’t about a few great schools,” said Dr. Grier. “It’s about a great school in every neighborhood. It’s about meeting every student where they are and helping them reach their full potential. It’s about making sure our students have the skills they need to succeed in college and a career.”

The show also features a behind-the-scenes look at the HISD Food Services Department and a profile of HISD graduate Sheriff Adrian Garcia.

Within our Walls can be viewed online at www.hisdtv.org and on HISD-TV (Comcast channel 18 and AT&T U-verse channel 99) every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 7 p.m.
