What is RISE?

  • As part of the bold new vision for the Houston Independent School District, Superintendent Millard House II has made a commitment to students and families that every child will have access to great schools and programs close to where they live—in every community HISD serves. To make this true, HISD must improve its D- and F-rated campuses quickly and permanently. As part of that commitment we have created the RISE (Redesign. Innovate. Support. Empower.) transformation cohort to transform persistently struggling campuses in Houston ISD.
