WELCOME TO "WOLF NATION" AND THE SAN AUGUSTINE INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT !!
I am looking forward to a great 2020-2021 school year. With all the changes that we, as a district and community, have gone through this past school year, I think we all need some Wolf Nation normal. My primary responsibility as Superintendent is to create, nurture, and maintain a learning and leadership environment for the school district, as well as implement the School Board’s vision for the district. I believe that it is critical for the Superintendent and all employees of the district to work together and understand the value of building relationships with not only each other, but with our students and community as well.
Even with all the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in 2020, SAISD held fast to its high expectations for our students and remains committed to providing a quality education, whether face-to-face or in a virtual environment. It is important that SAISD not only build character in our students, but leadership skills as well. We additionally have adopted a "growth mindset" and a "no excuses philosophy."
Teaching and learning will continue to be our district’s primary goal, and we want to ensure that it occurs in every class setting, everyday. We will focus on improving academic achievement and growth for all students while providing a challenging curriculum to meet our students' educational needs.
SAISD is fortunate to have highly qualified employees who care about the children of this community and are committed to providing them with an exceptional education. With district-wide enthusiasm toward this goal, coupled with support from our dedicated community and School Board, SAISD can meet or exceed our goals and be proud of our successes.
There are tremendous challenges in public education today. We are facing a health pandemic that has threatened our educational process and forced us to rethink how we educate our students. We have successfully faced that challenge and can ensure that all students in SAISD will receive the very best education possible in either a traditional or virtual environment.
We must keep the vision of SAISD alive and energized, and all work closely together as parents, teachers, administrators, and community members, to give our children the education they deserve and must have for the 21st century.
