Is wAXAHACHIEi.s.d. an educational destination? Do people move into our community because we have a strong school system? Do people that live in W.I.S.D. send their children to other districts, private, or charter schools? Opportunity-Journey-Destination!
WHAT DOES THE Data TELL US? What can we do Differently? Are students truly leaving Waxahachie ISD? What does the Leaver data show us? What are other districts offering and doing differently to combat this trend?
What is Our Purpose? • Discuss facilities, growth patterns, the possibility of a bond, and evaluate all district facility needs. • Review instructional programs and the structure of education in WISD, including parental choices. • Explore Pre-Kindergarten, distance learning, dual credit, & smaller classroom/ campus size. • Analyze how improved security and/or drug testing could impact culture and climate on our campuses. • Evaluate WHS and Global to see what programs should be expanded or eliminated moving forward. • Present a plan of action to our school board that addresses all district needs. We want to move with a purpose and act with a sense of urgency. Our goals should be strategic and systemic.
Meeting norms • Be respectful, kind, and courteous • Assume best intentions and seek clarification when needed • Everyone provides input • Dream big for kids and have fun
