We know how important technology is in today's day and age. We want our students to have access to the best 21st century tools so that they will be better prepared for their future. We need your input as we work through the process of assessing our technology across the school district. We're using an online survey called BrightBytes Clarity to get feedback from our students, teachers, and also from you. Using the URL below, please take a moment to tell us about your experience with technology. It should only take about 10 minutes. We'll be looking at your feedback, along with our student and teacher feedback, to give us a picture of how our students are using technology to learn in AISD.
Thank you for your help!
The time frame is the entire month of October 1-31

AISD Board of Trustees named 2014 Outstanding School Board of Texas
ARLINGTON, Texas, Sept. 27, 2014 – The Arlington ISD Board of Trustees was today named 2014 Outstanding School Board of Texas by the Texas Association of School Administrators. The program honors one school board from the state’s 1,027 independent school districts that has demonstrated dedication to student achievement and makes every effort to put students first.
“Our Board is passionate about ensuring that all Arlington ISD students are successful, and this recognition validates that focus and their work to achieve that belief,” Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos said. “The Board truly exemplifies governance through transformation. They are committed to our mission to empower and engage all students to be contributing, responsible citizens reaching their maximum potential through relevant, innovative and rigorous learning experiences.”
The five finalist Honor Boards were selected by a committee of school superintendents and were then interviewed yesterday during the TASA/TASB Convention. The committee’s decisions were based on specific criteria, including support for educational performance, support for educational improvement projects, commitment to a code of ethics, and maintenance of harmonious and supportive relationships among board members.
“We are honored to have been named the 2014 Outstanding School Board of Texas for our work supporting the education of our nearly 64,000 students,” Board President Bowie Hogg. “The Board is committed to strong educational performance and improvement and is made up of dedicated public servants.”
