On behalf of the Fort Sam Houston Independent School District (FSHISD) and the community in which it serves I, am extremely grateful to have been nominated as the President of the Board of Trustees for this prestigious district that serves active duty and retired military families. This district encompasses a unique global diversified group of students from all branches of our Armed Services. FSHISD is grounded with proficient and experienced administrators, staff, and faculty members that understand the dynamic challenges of military families whose children could experience 6-10 military moves placing them in a variety of school systems in regions around the world such as in Europe, Hawaii, Alaska, Italy and within any duty location in the Continental U.S. These kids need our direct attention immediately upon arriving with the complete understanding of the challenges of the military child and providing with the best resources available.
As your School Board President, it is my responsibility first and foremost to ensure every student in our district is setup to succeed at the highest levels possible by working in concert with the District Superintendent. The board has unwaveringly adopted the Superintendent’s Vision and Goals set for you to succeed. We will continue to build on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) as well as complete inclusion of our children with special needs educational services through our Military School Districts' Special Education Cooperative. We will continue to build a district that is diversified and reflective of our student base throughout the entire district staff. As our District mission states, FSHISD is committed to providing and cultivating a culture of continuous process improvement in pursuit of higher education or for entering the workforce.
Willie White, President Fort Sam Houston ISD Board of Trustees
