Community Conversations

2011 October 7
by HISD Communications

Last night, we kicked off the first in a series of Community Conversations. I got a chance to hear from many of you—our teachers, principals, parents, staff, and students. We had a great discussion at Chavez High School, and I want to thank those of you who made time to join us.

It was exciting to hear from you about all the great things going on in our schools from higher level teaching to new tutoring programs to help students succeed in rigorous courses. I also appreciate you sharing your thoughts on variety of topics including the state budget crisis, prekindergarten, summer school, special education programs, and the need to effectively engage HISD parents and the Hispanic community. This type of dialogue will help us to improve and ensure that we are meeting our core mission of providing a high-quality education for every child.

We will provide free buses to Sharpstown from Elrod, McNamara, and Sutton elementary schools and Fondren Middle School. The buses will depart at 5:45 p.m. and return to those campuses when the program ends.
