Interim Superintendent of Schools
Alvin Independent School District
Alvin ISD Community,
The start of the 2014-2015 school year is quickly approaching. In a matter of a few short weeks school bells will ring, and students and staff will fill the halls of our schools optimistic about what the year has in store. New opportunities will be available for every student attending school in Alvin ISD, as the District continues to focus on the three critical areas of our Engaged Learning Model: Relationships, Design and Standards. Staff members have spent countless hours this summer focused on professional growth and learning opportunities, in preparation for the return of our students. The vision of Alvin ISD continues to compel us to be a dynamic learning organization committed to excellence for all students and every program. Over the course of a student’s educational career, parents entrust their children to the faculty and staff of Alvin ISD for 2,340 days. We are committed to providing every student with meaningful learning opportunities on each one of those days.
Meeting the needs of every student requires a strong partnership between Alvin ISD and our community. Over the past few months, community members, parents and students worked with district staff members through a series of Education Summits and focus groups to develop the profile of an Alvin ISD learner. Our community identified, as a priority, that every graduate: Strategically Collaborates & Communicates, Initiates, Innovates, Problem Solves, Analyzes Data, Thinks Critically, Adapts, Empathizes, Values Ethics, and Thinks Globally. Throughout the year classroom assignments and projects, designed by our outstanding teaching staff, will facilitate the development of these vital skills listed in the Learner Profile, while engaging student in course content.
It is my honor to serve Alvin ISD as the Interim Superintendent for the upcoming fall semester. Having previously dedicated 27 years to Alvin ISD, I’m confident that the direction and commitment to the needs of each student is stronger than ever before. I encourage parents, community members, and students to actively partner with district staff as we aspire to achieve our goal of, “2,340 Every Student, Every Day.”
