TISD Board of Trustees Approves Imagine 2026 Strategic Plan, Establishment of Long Range Planning Committee

Texarkana, TX - The Texarkana Independent School District Board of Trustees approved Imagine 2026 at its April 27 meeting. This is a new five-year strategic plan developed through a community-driven process that involved over 300 TISD stakeholders over the course of the past six months.

"I just want to thank the hundreds of parents, community leaders, students, and staff members who contributed to the development of Imagine 2026," said TISD Superintendent Dr. Doug Brubaker. "In total, they contributed thousands of hours to this important process and have helped us to chart an exciting course for TISD for the next five years.”

Following the approval of the Imagine 2026 Strategic Plan, the Board approved the establishment of a Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC). This team, which will consist of TISD stakeholders, will work collaboratively to develop a long-range facilities plan that aligns with Imagine 2026 and meets the needs identified through the strategic planning process. At the conclusion of these meetings, the LRPC will present its recommendations to the Board of Trustees.

In other business, the administration provided the board an overview of the district being accepted into the System of Great Schools Network, reviewed the findings of the Texas Association of School Board (TASB) Pay Systems Review of all employee base pay systems, and provided a presentation on Pre-Kindergarten opportunities within TISD.

The Board also approved the First Reading of Budget FY 2022-2023 and Instructional Materials Allotment and TEKS Certification for 2022-2023.

The next meeting for the TISD Board of Trustees will be Wednesday, May 25, 2022.
