Nacogdoches Community Members:

This is an exciting time for Nacogdoches ISD and our community.  I am personally
happy to see all of our teachers and students back in school!

I would like to highlight the fact that, thanks to a collaborative effort district-wide during the 16-17 school year, Nacogdoches ISD and TJR Elementary are out of anImprovement Required” (IR) accountability rating status! This is a wonderful accomplishment and I am extremely proud of these results!   I would also like to share the schools receiving academic distinctions for the 2016-2017 school year:

Mike Moses Middle School
*Distinction Designation for Math (2016-2017)

Brooks-Quinn-Jones Elementary School
*Distinction Designation for Top 25% Student Progress (2016-2017)

While the majority of our schools have met state standards, I know there is a lot of work still to come.  With the parents, schools, families and community working together we can create a meaningful partnership that will ultimately lead to significant gains across our district in student achievement.  Review our academic goals that the NISD Board of Trustees have set for the district, along with the Goal Progress Measures.  Thanks for supporting NISD!

As always, Go Dragons!
