The New Year Has No Limits

Bright and early Monday morning, students across HISD will join their friends and teachers for an exciting year filled with academic growth and new experiences.

District employees have been working all summer to ensure every school is ready when the first bell rings. Custodians have been cleaning hallways and filling towel dispensers, and plant operators have been testing equipment and checking HVAC systems to make sure classrooms are ready for learning. And teachers and principals have undergone extensive leadership training and worked hard to prepare schools and classrooms for their students.

HISD has a new curriculum that is designed to meet the needs of every child. Students at six campuses will have the chance to earn associate’s degrees and career training in technical fields under the new HILZ (Houston Innovative Learning Zone) program.

Four new schools funded by the 2007 bond will open their doors on the first day – and we have a bond proposition on the November ballot that would rebuild or renovate 38 schools across the district in coming years. With a new year ahead of us, HISD is committed to offering a consistently rigorous and safe learning environment at all of our 279 schools. There’s no limit to what our teachers, principals, and students can achieve.
