  • Primary Goal 1: Increase Student Performance HISD student performance will demonstrate growth evidenced on state and national standardized assessments, thus narrowing achievement gaps to graduate all students equipped for college and career readiness. Any grade level, or subject with more than an 8% achievement gap will be targeted for improvement.

    Supporting Goal 2: Create and Support a Positive District Culture Through clear articulation of the district’s mission, HISD will create a powerful sense of community and shared direction among personnel, parents, students, and the public. Parent and community input is valued and utilized to improve a sense of cooperation. Realizing the value of our human assets, HISD will work to attract and retain the best teachers and staff members while creating an environment in which they may flourish. * Evidence of attainment -- Employee satisfaction survey will be utilized annually to evaluate and improve employee satisfaction. The survey will address employee perceptions of job satisfaction, professional development, work environment, and ask for input in areas identified as in need of improvement.

    Supporting Goal 4: Improve Public Support, Confidence, and Communication The schools of Hemphill ISD belong to the citizens of our district, hence the board, administration, and support staff are public servants charged to support the schools and the relationship between teachers, students, and parents. Public confidence regarding thte safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority. Support increases as a result of district transparency, all-inclusive accountability, effective communication, and meaningful community engagement. * Evidence of attainment -- Parent/community survey will be utilized annually to evaluate and improve community relations.

Hemphill ISD Covid-19 Update
March 10, 2021
On Wednesday, March 10, 2021, by order of Governor Abbott through Executive Order GA-34, face coverings and capacity mandates under previous executive orders have been lifted but encourages the wearing of face coverings where social distancing is not feasible.  Hemphill ISD’s school plan for the school year 2020-2021 establishes that HISD will follow the directives of federal and state governing bodies over schools.  As indicated in the 2020-2021 school plan HISD does not mandate, but strongly encourages the wearing of accepted protective face coverings.  HISD will adhere to state capacity mandates at school functions open to the public.  HISD will also continue all school plan established safety practices (to include outlined visitor restrictions) and continue to follow state and federal directives and guidelines.

Thank you for helping HISD provide a safe learning environment for our students and staff!
