Every year, technology advances by leaps and bounds. Most first graders were born the same year the first generation iPhone was released to the public—and many could operate one before pre-kindergarten. This change in how youth relates to their environment has changed the way they learn in the classroom and it is up to education leaders to evolve with these changing times.
“Learning never stops, even for educators,” said Dr. Brian G. Gottardy, superintendent of schools, “so the district is embarking on a transformation process this fall that will help us prepare our classrooms for 21st century learners.”
GET INVOLVED IN TRANSFORMING THE FUTURE
The input of the NEISD community is essential to this process. The district will host six afternoon/evening community forums to solicit feedback and ideas from stakeholders. The dates are:
- *Mon, Sept. 16 at Roosevelt HS (5110 Walzem Rd) – 6:00 p.m.
- Tue, Sept. 17 at Piper Bass (12002 Jones Maltsberger Rd) – 11:30 a.m.

*Child care will be provided at Monday’s meeting. To reserve your space,
please call (210) 407-0364.
Time is valuable, so food and drinks at the community forums will be provided. North East ISD encourages you to take advantage of one of these opportunities to share your knowledge and ideas.
Give feedback through an online survey starting Sept. 17. Following the input collection process, NEISD will formulate an action plan that will be presented to the district Board of Trustees.
