Focus Group Meetings

As part of the district's ongoing community inspired strategic design process, HISD is continuing to gather community input through a series of focus groups. The Small Focus Group Meetings are scheduled for various times on Tuesday & Wednesday, October 27 & 28.  During these focus groups, you will have an opportunity to go in-depth on sharing your thoughts about what HISD should be providing for students today and in the future. 
 
Parents are invited to sign up to attend one of the three Parent sessions, but if one of those time slots doesn't work for you, please consider attending one of the four Community sessions also scheduled.  Each session will be limited to the first 20 people to RSVP, so please hurry and sign up now!  
 
All Focus Group Meetings will be held at the Hornet Room at the HISD Support & Learning Center on the campus of Mance Park Middle School (corner of 8th Street & University Ave).  
 
Each session will be capped at 20 individuals based on a first come first served RSVP in order to keep the sessions small.
 
There will be 3 Parent sessions and 4 Community sessions in addition to some sessions that will be by invitation only to our internal groups.  If you aren't able to attend a session intended for your specific stakeholder group, you can always attend one of the Community sessions or the final "Catch All" session that is OPEN to anyone in the community who is interested in participating.  These sessions will also be capped at the first 20 to RSVP, so register quickly before they fill up. 
 
Several sessions are intended for employees of Sam Houston State University and Texas Department of Criminal Justice.  Please click the link for your designated group and sign up!  If it's full, please consider choosing one of the Community sessions to participate in. Civic Leaders, Businesses, Realtors, Clergy, and members of local Clubs & Organizations are also invited to participate.  See below for the sessions that target your groups!
