Superintendent's Message


On behalf of everyone at Diboll ISD, I am happy to “Welcome You” to the 2015-2016 school

year!  I thought about 3 words that I would want when selecting someone to be part of my childrens' life and the following words keep ringing true.

“Communication, Consistency and Commitment”

I truly believe that in Diboll ISD you will find that our staff can and will follow through in these areas. We are looking forward to another  productive year in Diboll ISD. We have many “GREAT” things going on and you will find stories, pictures and information throughout our website and at our campuses.  Below you will see our “ District Commitments” for the 2015-2016 school year.

  • Diboll ISD is committed to Academic Progress and Growth for ALL students.

  • Diboll ISD is committed to helping our students achieve job readiness.

  • Diboll ISD is committed to providing and using modern technology in education.

  • Diboll ISD is committed to managing the resources provided by our taxpayers in an efficient, responsible manner.

  • Diboll ISD is committed to making our schools a safe place for our students, staff, and community.

As we make decisions throughout the year we should always look to these “Commitments” as a guide to help us stay focused and not lose our way.

We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We all have 24 hours in each day to make a difference. Remember the school gets 8 hours with your child and you get 16 hours.  This is a TEAM effort! All we ask is that you do your part in supporting your child’s learning by constantly encouraging him/her to do the following:

1) Attend school daily and arrive on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Communicate with teachers and staff on all issues that they feel are important

3) Read daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

4) Share school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

5) Inform you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

6) Know that you expect him/her to succeed in school so they may attend college and/or technical school, join the military or move into the workforce as a productive citizen.

I feel privileged to be a part of this community and school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to an exciting school year.

Our doors are always open and as always ”Ax em Jacks”!
