San Antonio Public Schools
At San Antonio Apartments, we understand the importance of education in today's
society. Parents want nothing more than to place their children in schools where
they know their children will be in good hands. Especially when moving to a new
area, parents want to make sure that there are appropriate schools nearby.
Researching specific needs and wants for their children's education is the first
step that any moving parent should take. A simple phone call to the school's
district will answer most of your questions, but not all. Some cases may require
a visit to a counselor who is more than willing to help a parent find the right
education and school for their kids. The internet is also a very useful source
for information regarding ANYTHING related to your child's education. Here is a
link to the San Antonio Independent School District website.
San Antonio Independent
The mission of the San Antonio Independent School District is to
graduate all students as responsible citizens with the academic and
social preparation to pursue higher education, join the military, or
enter the work force.
SAISD Fundamental Beliefs:
- Excellence and equity in student performance are achievable for
all students. We believe that every child can and will learn in an
educational setting committed to high expectations for all.
- No child will be left behind. We believe that when a child fails
to learn, it is the system that fails - not the child. Each campus
must assume ownership and accept accountability for the learning
outcomes of each and every child.
- The teacher is the program. The hallmark of a good educational
system is measured by the quality of the people who deliver
instruction. No program, no matter how innovative, well researched, or
costly, will succeed without the efforts of an effective, caring
- People support what they help create. Quality education is a
collaborative process among leaders and learners where teachers,
parents, students, the community and administration are individually
valued and where they jointly share responsibilities for making
decisions that improve educational opportunities for all children.
- Change comes from within. Successful change comes about when each
person is committed to a common vision and mutually-shared beliefs
that guide the behavior of the entire organization. Each District
stakeholder-- those within the school family and those in the extended
school family -- must believe and exhibit the tenets that form the
foundation of SAISD's core values.
- Governance - establishes an effective operations structure that
ensures organizational stability and maximizes student performance,
effective planning, effective policy development and decision-making,
prudent fiscal decision-making, and establishes district-wide
accountability for all stakeholders at all levels of the organization.
- Academics - establishes expectations of excellence and equity in
student academic performance and provides high quality instructional
programs for all students.
- Student Support - establishes expectations of excellence and
equity in student social and life skill development and provides high
quality and personalized student support services to all students.

district-wide accountability system.

personnel necessary to achieve the organization's mission.
