On Monday, Dr. Richele Langley, MISD School Superintendent, spoke at the monthly meeting of the CAC. Dr. Langley arrived in May to assume the duties of her new position. She is not new to the MISD system. She is a 1983 graduate of Marshall High School.
The presentation “Marshall ISD – Promise for Our Future” covered the topics:
- Where are we now
In July a new Assistant Superintendent came on-board. Currently student enrollment is up 200 students from this time last year. MISD has also started a Strategic Planning Process.
MISD began the 2021-2022 school year with in-person learning. COVID positive numbers are below 2% for both staff and students. Enrollment is back above 5000 after a 4800 low.
The COVID sliide is real at MISD. After a steady increase in STAAR scores from 2017-2019 STAAR scores from 2019-2021 dropped on average 10% per subject and grade level. Over the last decade average enrollment dropped from 5600 to 4800.
Langley sees an opportunity to develop a school system that begins with the end in mind. That is – an education that equips every student with the tools to go out into the world and get a job.
MISD will assign K-12 with the 4 endorsement pathways:
- Fine Arts
- Business & Industry
- Public Service
MISD is working to develop a 5-year Strategic Plan by February 28, 2022. In order to manage complex change MISD must have 5 factors present:
- Action Plan
MISD goal is to begin implementation of the Strategic Action Plan the first day of school – August 2022. This will require the strategic plan to be converted into a set of specific actions.
