From the Superintendent
It is my firm belief that successful schools cultivate a collaborative culture. A culture that involves all stakeholders within the learning community, this collaborative culture includes faculty/staff, parents, community, and business partners. As informed stakeholders, we possess the ability to address the differences that impact student learning and student achievement. The true fabric of the described culture starts and ends with the learning community discussing and focusing on what matters most, learning and student academic achievement.
As the Superintendent of the Calvert Independent School District, I will work collaboratively with the campus leadership team, community members, business partners and the Board of Trustees in an effort to facilitate programs and campus systems that are conducive to learning for all students.

Our expectation is that every child be involved in leadership organizations and educational programs that will prepare them for college and to be a productive citizen in our complex society. The Board of Trustees, Administration, Teachers, and other Staff are committed to meeting the need of every child in a school environment that is conducive to learning. Calvert ISD is very proud of the success our students have achieved. If you have a child who does not attend Calvert ISD we truly desire to have the opportunity to meet his or her educational needs.
