District Spotlight

Dear Tomball ISD Community,
Throughout last spring and summer, the Tomball ISD administrative team and Board of Trustees worked collaboratively with parents and community members to develop the Tomball ISD Destination Excellence 20/20 Vision.  This vision provides a guide for our district to achieve the goal of being a leader in educational excellence by the end of the year 2020.  In order to support this vision, we presented a $275 million bond to our community that addressed new district facilities, renovations at existing campuses, new technology, and additional school buses.  We are grateful that Bond 2017 passed with overwhelming support.
Bond 2017 will address student growth by enabling the district to build an elementary school to relieve Wildwood Elementary School and a junior high to relieve Willow Wood Junior High School.  An expansion project at Tomball Memorial High School will also add classrooms to accommodate new growth.  A new football stadium, improvements to the baseball and softball fields, a new swim training facility, and an agricultural barn are included under Bond 2017.  Renovations will also be completed to the auditorium at Tomball High School and the front elevation at Tomball Intermediate School. 
Instructional technology such as laptops, Chromebooks, and document cameras will be included under Bond 2017.  Upgrades in the district technology infrastructure will also compliment instructional technology utilized in the classroom.  Lastly, we will continue to upgrade our fleet of school buses and make other improvements to district properties.   
As the holiday season approaches, my heart is filled with gratitude for the amazing faculty and staff of Tomball ISD.  I am grateful for the trust our community has instilled in us as educational leaders.  I am also thankful for the ongoing support and leadership of the Tomball ISD Board of Trustees, and for the Tomball ISD parents and community members who attended our community meetings as we discussed Bond 2017 and then shared that message with their families, neighbors, and friends.  As I take time to reflect on how grateful I am to be part of a wonderful and supportive community, I am reminded that Tomball ISD is not just a district, it is a DESTINATION!  
Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora
Superintendent of Schools
