Tomball ISD believes "character counts" inside and outside of the classroom. We understand the importance of character development in preparing our students for a successful future. In 2023, Tomball ISD created the CAREER framework for character education in grades 7-12. CAREER stands for Character, Accountability, Responsibility, Excellence, Effort, and Respect. The CAREER framework is 100% aligned to the Texas Positive Character Trait Standards. Senate Bill (SB) 123, enacted by the 87th Texas Legislature, requires every district in Texas to implement a character education program.
Aligned with our mission and vision of educating students to become responsible and productive citizens who will lead in creating the future, as well as the Texas Education Agency's Positive Character Traits, the CAREER Framework embodies our commitment to equipping our students with the essential skills needed for any CAREER they choose.
Tomball ISD ensures that our students not only excel academically but also develop the essential skills and character traits necessary for their future CAREER. We are committed to nurturing well-rounded individuals who will make a positive impact in their professions and communities.
The following courses have been cross-walked and have earned the TISD CAREER seal for having positive character traits/jobs skills embedded in their Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). TISD’s curriculum for CAREER courses are being developed with explicit activities and lessons to teach, model, and nurture these traits in our students.
