School Board Approves New Vision and Mission for PSJA ISD


PSJA Family,

I want to thank you for joining us on this journey of updating our district's Vision and Mission. We started this work back in January by inviting you to numerous focus groups, and asking for your input on various surveys and exchanges. After several months of gathering your thoughts and incredible conversations through this process, we have reached our final product.

I want to thank each and every one of you, as well as our dynamic school board for their leadership and support. This was no easy task, in fact, it had not been done in almost two decades, but together as we celebrated our district's Centennial, we saw the need to build a new vision and mission that corresponded with who we are today and where we want to be in years to come!

We appreciate the collaboration of our partner in education The Holdsworth Center who was with us every step of the way and helped us document this process with full transparency. As well as the many team members who ensured all voices were heard and captured to reflect the essence of PSJA. 

We now have a clear guiding light that will lead us to our next step, aligning our district strategic priorities to our new Vision and Mission. Our leadership team will work on this alignment this summer to present it to you as we return for the 2020-2021 school year. We know this new school year will not be like any other, but by continuing to work together and supporting each other through these unprecedented times, we will continue to do what is right for our PSJA children and their future!

Thank you!

Dr. Jorge L. Arredondo
