Celebrate our heroes
Our students, teachers, administrators, and families are working harder than ever before. To show our true gratitude and encourage our community to persevere through these times, we can implement incentives in addition to the initiatives we already have in place:
- Personal phone calls or socially distanced visits from school board members and superintendent to honor those who are going above and beyond for our kids each day.
- Temporarily repurposing our media crew (since in-person events are now rare) to record and release students’ testimonials about how someone in AISD (bus driver, coach, teacher, custodian, lunch monitor, etc.) has helped them learn and persevere through this time.
Retaining qualified professionals and passionate educators is critical to the future of our school district and the 60,000 children we serve. We must be intentional about providing incentives and showing ongoing appreciation to our AISD employees.
