Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Steve Flores commenced his weekly campus visits for the school year.
Administrators, staff and students welcomed Dr. Flores into their classrooms with big smiles, and he shared with students the important role they play at HCISD.
“Do you know who helps make our district the best in the region and state?” Flores said to students at Lee Means Elementary School. “It’s you. Your hard work and excitement to come to class everyday is what makes HCISD exceptional.”
Flores and additional members of the Superintendent Staff will visit multiple campuses every Wednesday to ensure they are meeting the diverse needs of each campus.
“It’s systemic support which will be more aligned with our mission to make certain we are meeting then needs of our campuses,” Dr. Flores said. “Our campuses are what makes our district function, and we need to continue to assess our performances as campuses and administrators to progress HCISD further into the 21st century.”
The ultimate charge of the visitation evaluation method is for the benefit of the students, and to provide them with optimal educational facilities, Dr. Flores said.
“Our students and their education will always be our priority at HCISD,” said Dr. Arturo Cavazos, deputy superintendent for transformation and school support. “As administrators, teachers and staff, it is our duty to continually work to deliver a high quality learning environment to promote the academic advancement of every student.”
School administrators, staff and students appreciate seeing the Superintendent on campus, they said.
“It always puts our students and staff in good spirits when members of administration pay us a visit, “ said Jesse Gallegos, principal at Keys Academy. “When they ask our students how many credits they have, it makes them think about their education and graduation.”
Visits will continue until the end of the 2012 – 2013 school year.
