Message from Dr. Z

Dear Tomball ISD Faculty and Staff,
 
I want to welcome you all back to a new and exciting 2019-2020 school year!    As we all enjoyed our convocation celebrating The Happiest District on Earth, I had the opportunity to look out into the crowd and witness the best faculty and staff in the world and know exactly how we got where we are!  
 
Your amazing work is demonstrated in so many ways from STAAR and UIL results to the very climate and culture of each and every Tomball ISD campus.  The high level of satisfaction our students and families express on surveys speaks to your sense of service, leadership, and community.   For the second year in a row, Tomball ISD has earned the grade of A under the Texas School Accountability System with actual domain scores of 90 or above across all domains!
 
As a prime destination, Tomball ISD is growing!  With well over 6% annual growth, we are progressing steadily with the bond-funded upgrade to existing facilities and the construction of new ones so that Tomball ISD keeps its place as the highest performing school district in our area. 
 
 We are entering an exciting phase in the development of our next Strategic Plan which will lead us to being one of the highest-scoring school districts in the entire state of Texas. A district where every day all students are challenged and supported through rigorous and meaningful learning experiences. 
 
While we are of course proud of our district’s success, what makes us The Happiest District on Earth also includes the incredible community we serve.  We are not only the grateful stewards of their investment, but they have entrusted us with preparing their children for the future.  It is a daunting but amazing task and it drives the commitment we all share to our district culture and experience.
 
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.
 
Wishing you all the very best for the 2019-2020 school year!
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora
