The purpose of an intermediate school district (ISD) is to provide support to the development and success of all students, either through direct programming or indirect support to local districts. From this perspective of servant leadership, we are here to serve our community. Our goal is to be  a place of excellence where students can achieve full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, and moral development.  As economic, political, and social changes occur in our society, we aspire to face those challenges with  integrity and a growth mindset in service to others.

Being entrusted with the care and growth of children is an honor we don’t take lightly. All children have the potential for greatness and to reach their personal goals, with a voice to advocate for their needs. It is our job to develop a system that ensures success, with partnerships throughout the community, with an emphasis on integrity, a growth mindset and a focus on students.

If you have questions about any of our programs, services, or departments, there is a contact person listed on every page – please feel free to contact that person via phone or e-mail.

I also welcome your emails and phone calls.
