Message from the Superintendent
Since my arrival in El Paso to take the helm of the region’s largest school district, I have been inspired by the community’s support of our schools and encouraged by its expectation that all our students achieve excellence. The young people at our 76 campuses deserve an outstanding education and our teachers, staff and administrative leadership are eager to deliver. To this end, I believe the development of a Strategic Blueprint to focus and unify our efforts is necessary.
Throughout the last 10 months, El Paso ISD has worked diligently to identify its strategic priorities and identify how to work toward them by leveraging our strengths. To achieve this aim, we have embraced a theory of action and identified initiatives that are high priorities to guide us forward. This theory of action focuses on whole child development, delivery of instructional excellence, fostering a transparent culture of excellence, and intentional equity design that makes El Paso ISD a destination district.
This plan will be a constantly evolving roadmap to excellence. In addition to regular progress updates to our Board, families, and community, we will also assess the goals and strategies themselves. If state policies or standards change, will adjust the Strategic Blueprint accordingly and keep moving in a positive direction.
We launch this Strategic Blueprint confident in our community and families, proud of our schools’ commitment to inspire and empower, and excited for our students’ achievement during the next three years.

Our Strategic Blueprint
The El Paso Independent School District is the pioneer of public education in the Paso del Norte region. With a history that spans more than 140 years, El Paso ISD recognizes its position as the springboard for generations of students to realize their dreams. We acknowledge the need to continue to assess our existing programs to bring innovation, empowerment, and inspiration so our students thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. We are El Paso’s district!
Throughout the last 10 months, El Paso ISD has undertaken a process to identify our strategic priorities. This has spurred us to carefully evaluate our inherent strengths and how they can be leveraged to meet the community we serve.
Our organization’s theory of action is anchored on our core values, mission, and vision. In partnership with our families and community we seek to uphold the highest standards to provide inclusive and fair learning experiences that support the whole child. We will accomplish this theory of action through whole child development, delivery of instructional excellence, fostering a transparent culture of excellence, and intentional equity design to thereby make EPISD a destination district.
Armed with these strategic levers and with an unwavering commitment, the district has established a road map to work toward the Hopes and Dreams of our students and families.
