The first-ever cohort of the Kerrville ISD Teacher Leadership Academy was launched this school year. The Academy focused on helping teachers develop as leaders. This year, 35 applicants were accepted into the program. ESC-20 Leadership Consultant, Demetrio Garcia, was present at each meeting to facilitate. Participants met six times throughout the year and completed six modules of curriculum as well as a book study over Awakening the Sleeping Giant: Helping Teachers Develop as Leaders (3rd Edition) by Marilyn Katzenmeyer and Gayle Moller.
“Continuously Investing in our staff is one of the most important things we can do for our children,” Superintendent Dr. Mark Foust said. “Developing teacher leaders in our district is one of our key district goals and a vital component / element of our district strategic plan.”

The Kerrville ISD community approved a bond referendum for $88.9 million on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, allowing the school district to implement much needed safety and accessibility updates and address aging infrastructure across the district. A new HPMS and new KISD Ag Facility are also important components of the 2018 Bond. This is the first comprehensive bond package voters have approved in almost 19 years in Kerrville.
Kerrville ISD would like to alert the community and local businesses of outside vendors who are selling advertising and merchandise in the name of Kerrville ISD sports teams and organizations. Vendors are using Kerrville ISD campus names, sayings, or logos on promotional products that have not been sanctioned by the school district, and the school district receives no funding from these vendors.
