Declaration of Beliefs and Visions

The Houston Independent School District’s A Declaration of Beliefs and Visions has been the district's roadmap to success for two decades.

A statement of HISD’s instructional and operational philosophy, Beliefs and Visions has guided the district to ever-higher levels of student achievement and financial stability.The basic tenet of that document is HISD's commitment to focusing all of its resources on students and schools. To achieve that end, the school system is progressively decentralizing administrative authority and establishing critical decision-making and accountability at the campus level.
