• Interim Superintendent Grenita Lathan
  • Ten of the campuses in Achieve 180 are known as the “Superintendent’s Schools.” These campuses have been struggling academically for the past five or more years for a variety of reasons unique to each school community. HISD is committed to transforming these campuses over the next year through the pillars of the Achieve 180 program, along with increased support from district leadership and centralized assistance from various departments that will collaborate to address the root cause or causes of underperformance at each school. Each of the Superintendent’s Schools has a “school improvement plan” that was approved by the HISD Board of Education and submitted to the Texas Education Agency.

Demonstrate A180


    The Superintendent ‘s Schools will also take part in Demonstrate A180, which pairs them with a similar demographic campus within the district that has either continuously met standards over the course of several years or with a campus that has demonstrated continuous gains from an improvement-required status to meeting standards for at least two consecutive years. The demonstration school partnership is intended to build the capacity of school leaders and teachers, to improve schoolwide systems unique to each level of school, and to provide individualized campus support to the campus.

Collaborate A180


    Three of the Superintendent’s Schools—Kashmere, Wheatley, and Worthing high schools—are also part of Collaborate A180, which pairs them with campuses for “distance learning.“ As part of Collaborate A180, teachers at the three high schools will be partnered with distance learning teachers to plan lessons and to receive feedback on their instructional program and planned delivery of instruction. Principals will be partnered with other principals to assess the effectiveness of their campus professional-learning communities and design a plan to improve outcomes.
