Message to Parents




TO:             Northwest ISD Parents and Caregivers

SUBJECT:   Superintendent's Update
DATE:          May 30, 2018

I want to recognize that we have a lot to be thankful for today. We are going to continue to support our Justin elementary students and families as they recover from yesterday's bus accident. I truly appreciate the service of our local emergency responders and the response from our community. We live in an amazing area that provides great care and support to this district. As we finish this final week of the 2017-2018 school year, I also want to express my gratitude for those who help define the future of our school district.

Northwest ISD is led by a wonderful group of servant leaders who want the best for our students and NISD. I want to publicly thank our Northwest ISD Board of Trustees for their dedication, vision, and work. Your newest board member, Ron Hastings, took his oath of office last night, and together, the Board set the path for the future of Northwest ISD with the approval of the 2018-2022 Northwest ISD Strategic Framework.

Under your School Board's outstanding leadership, our district's Core Beliefs, Vision, Mission, and Strategic Goals are much more than something that hang on the walls of our schools, these statements guide our district. I encourage you to review the 2018-2022 Northwest ISD Strategic Framework, as it will provide the basis for all decisions made in NISD.

I also want to thank the 85+ students, parents, community members, teachers, and campus and district administrators who participated in the Strategic Summit and helped ensure that our revised Strategic Framework reflects our community's desires for education in Northwest ISD. Their feedback, insight, and efforts to develop a recommendation for the Board was invaluable, and I cannot thank them enough!

I am excited to begin the transition to our new Core Beliefs, Vision, Mission, and Strategic Goals, and know that we are all blessed to be part of a community where kids come first. Thank you for supporting our schools, and I wish you and your family the best as we wrap up this school year with excellence.
