  • Branding Assets

    • To help Houston Independent School District (HISD) offices, departments, and schools maintain a consistent and effective identity in the communications and publications they produce, HISD has prepared this style guide. It includes basic rules of written communication, such as punctuation, abbreviations, and capitalization, as well as guidelines for formatting and the use of the approved district branding (seal).
