HISD observes Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

The Houston Independent School District Board of Education issued a proclamation declaring the month of May as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in HISD.

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month honors the enduring legacy of Asian Americans and Pacific Islands Americans and celebrates their significant contributions to our culture in many areas including science, commerce, education, and the arts.

Asian-American and Pacific-Islander parents, business representatives, and community members bring to HISD schools a wealth of support and a strong commitment to making a positive impact on the educational experience of all students.

Asian-American and Pacific-Islander administrators, teachers, and staff members are making a lifelong difference in the lives of students, providing the guidance and education they need to successfully pursue their dreams.
