A Commitment to Support ALL Students
As superintendent of the Socorro Independent School District, I am committed to educating and treating our students as if they are our very own children by providing the support and resources ALL of them, including our most vulnerable students, need to thrive emotionally and academically.
The WIN Academy started at 10 schools in SISD during the 2015-2016 school year and was expanded this school year to six more schools. Team SISD already has seen success in WIN Academy student performance, attendance, and confidence.
Our WIN Academy was recently awarded an $800,000 grant by the prestigious W.K. Kellogg Foundation. We are grateful and honored to receive this valuable contribution that will further support our relentless efforts to ensure every student in Team SISD succeeds.
The reality is the one-size-fits-all traditional public education system does not meet the needs of all our students. As we implement the Every Student Succeeds Act, our WIN Academy has the potential to significantly impact education reform not just in SISD, but also nationwide.
With the support of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation and our entire community, I strongly believe we will close the achievement gap with a proven, successful WINning approach!
