To celebrate the start of a new school year, Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District administrators and school board members gathered to set their expectations for success on Aug. 7.
During the yearly administration meeting, Superintendent Dr. Steve Flores shared his expectations for all the campuses at HCISD with many of them centered on student achievement.
“Our district will remain committed now more than ever to the achievement of our students,” said Dr. Flores. “For our students to achieve, we must believe in every one of them, and support them as they work toward achieving their dreams. While we continue our transformation, we have to keep in mind that our mission begins and ends with our students. We know that this will be HCISD’s breakout year, and we will be the best district in the region and state. Our students deserve our best efforts.”
In addition to objectives, also front and center was the progress on the district’s transformational pieces, which are charged with assisting students as they pursue success in the 21st century. Updates were given on the Dr. Abraham P. Cano Freshmen Academy, the Performing Arts Center, Ag Farm, Digital Classrooms and Dual Language Academies.
With the excitement felt throughout the room, administrators were encouraged to share it with their teachers, staff and students on the first day of school to help set the tone for a monumental school year.
The school year for HCISD will begin on Aug. 26.
