KISD – FES, IES, LES AND PGES NAMED NATIONAL PTA SCHOOLS OF EXCELLENCE
Florence, Independence, Liberty, and Park Glen elementary schools have joined an elite group of schools recognized by the National PTA as a School of Excellence
Only 73 PTAs in the entire state of Texas received this recognition. These campuses join the only other KISD elementary school to hold this designation – Keller-Harvel Elementary, which earned the honor last year.
The School of Excellence program supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools that work to improve the educational experience and school environment for every child. This program also provides guidance to assist schools in engaging families in school decision-making, and helps schools build inclusive policies related to education, health, safety, or the arts.
As a National PTA School of Excellence, the schools are recognized for their commitment to building an inclusive and welcoming school community where all families contribute to enriching the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.
The process for earning School of Excellence status included a baseline survey of campus parents and staff in the fall of 2018, and an assessment of results and plan to implement improvement strategies, followed by a final survey at end of the school year to measure results.
