This school year has been full of so many wonderful achievements. Tomball ISD has been recognized by various organizations such as The College Board, the Texas Education Agency, The Association of School Business Officials, the Government Finance Officers Association, Niche.com, SchoolDigger.com, and Texas Smart Schools for both the outstanding academic achievement of our students and the superb fiscal management of the district which includes an AA+ rating with Standard & Poor’s and an Aa1 rating with Moody’s.
This year 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, the Tomball ISD community overwhelmingly approved a $275 million bond for new district facilities, renovations at existing campuses, new technology, and expanded and improved transportation.
At Tomball ISD, we’re not a big, impersonal school district, we’re a home for people looking for a warm, close-knit community where teachers, principals, staff, and administrators truly care about each individual child. We are also a destination for strong academic programs and a wide variety of extracurricular activities. Our focus is to make sure that every single student finds a place to belong, a passion to pursue and a love for learning that will serve them well beyond the years they spend with us.
Because of our sincere and focused commitment to:
• Student achievement through innovative programs
• Parent/Community Involvement
• Professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators,
Tomball ISD has been chosen as a finalist for the 2018 H-E-B Excellence in Education District Award!
Those three criteria are at the very heart of our district’s 20/20 Vision that by the end of 2020, Tomball ISD will be viewed as a leader in educational excellence. We are looking forward to hosting a selection committee from H-E-B this spring and sharing with them the priorities which are Tomball ISD to this 20/20 Vision.
This award is extremely competitive and I want to take this time to thank each of you for your hard work and commitment. It is through your efforts and accomplishments that this honor is possible. I would also like to thank the incredible teams who contributed to completing the application for the award. Team Tomball makes me proud every day, and I am so pleased to be able to share this pride with H-E-B!
