Santa Fe ISD says thanks to our departing school board members

These public servants donate their time and talents to ensure that all of our children have the best public schools we can provide. These trustees attend meetings, workshops, training, read detailed reports, listen to parents’ concerns and do the hard work to benefit the students and the community at large. And make no mistake about it, the whole community benefits from good schools.

Veterans Day in Santa Fe ISD
Posted: November 06, 2016

As we celebrate our veterans on this Veterans Day 2016, I feel grateful as the daughter of a Korean War veteran to be honoring our veterans this week. For someone like me, stories of the war and the sacrifices he and his fellow army “buddies” made literally jump off the pages of his scrapbooks. How wonderful it is to see the spirit of patriotism through the eyes of a veteran!

Santa Fe ISD celebrates National Principal's Month
Posted: October 30, 2016

October is designated annually as National Principals Month to recognize the essential role that principals play in school achievement and student success. Being a school principal is a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week job because the school is constantly in your thoughts. It has to be because, as the leader, a principal is responsible for faculty, staff and most importantly, the students. According to research, student performance is one of the most common indicators of principal effectiveness.

School attendance is important in Santa Fe ISD
Posted: September 18, 2016

September is National Attendance Awareness Month: Attend Today; Achieve Tomorrow. Research has proven that there is a high correlation between school attendance and academic performance and success, while absence from school is often the greatest single cause of poor performance and achievement. In 2015, the Santa Fe ISD board of trustees approved a policy that requires all students in SFISD to have 95 percent attendance during the school year in order to be “prepared to achieve and succeed” in school and life. To support our student attendance initiative, each campus will provide incentives to students to encourage student attendance.
