The 2013-2014 school year is underway bringing new opportunities and excitement for Ferris ISD. Throughout the summer our FISD staff has been preparing for the start of school. We are continually considering new and innovative programs and opportunities for students. Ferris ISD has purchased iPads for all teachers and administrative staff so that we can bring more technology based learning into our classrooms. We have also purchased 600 iPads for student use. These iPads will be introduced into the classrooms during the fall semester at all campuses. Security cameras at several campuses have been upgraded and we've added a third police officer to insure the safety of our students. In addition, numerous new programs and classes at various campuses have been added.
We are pleased to announce that all FISD campuses as well as the district received the Texas Education Agency rating of Met Standard. This is the highest rating that a campus or district can achieve. We are extremely proud of the efforts of our students and staff.
Welcome to Ferris ISD and welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! I would challenge you to get involved in the educational process by being an active participant with our school system. I encourage you to visit your student’s campus, attend district activities, communicate with you student’s teachers and campus administrators and be supportive of our school system. Working together- Student/Parent/School- we can insure that every student in Ferris ISD is provided a world class educational experience.
