Superintendent's Message

Welcome back to ISD’s campus!

You probably see a more beautiful campus this year.  Our Operations Division team worked very hard removing bushes and trees that were located inappropriately on our campus. Also, our Willard Elementary and Caskey Gym buildings are much brighter with the new high-efficient energy windows. Our internet network was upgraded with new equipment to manage the increase in network traffic now that our education medium is digitalized for our students with one Apple iPad for each student. Be sure to say thank you to our Operations Division staff for their hard work and dedication in making our campus more efficient and a first class school.

Our Education Division has rolled out with a great start in clarifying the Teacher of Record and Teacher of Service duties. Some staff duties have changed to help our teachers realign themselves and let them focus on teaching our students the state standards. Our case conference staff and other education team members have assumed the role of Teacher of Service to work with our Local Education Agencies who are the official Teacher of Record. Our teachers are still responsible for our students Individual Education Plan. I believe this approach will create a more positive learning environment for our students, teachers, and staff. 

We are now into our fourth week of school for 2015-2016.  Our staff and students are doing a spectacular job working together to make this dynamic school year an inevitable success!

I look forward to see you on our campus.
Dr. David Geeslin
