Welcome to the 2021-22 school year in Aransas County ISD!
As we enter into a new school year, I'm excited about the solid educational foundation we are building for our Aransas County ISD community made possible with great teachers, great staff, a supportive school board, and an engaged community. With these critical partnerships, we will reach a common destination of excellence for our students. In ACISD, we are instilling a belief that if our students Start Here with us, they can Go Anywhere!
As our teachers returned to work this week, I want to take the time to thank them for their commitment to the students of Aransas County ISD. Our teachers have spent countless hours preparing, training, volunteering, participating in webinars, researching best practices, and swapping ideas with other teachers. I am confident that our students are in good hands.
Students, we are excited to see you in person and help you reconnect with friends, teachers, coaches, counselors, and other support staff. You are the reason we do what we do! We are committed to empowering you with the knowledge to go, serve, and lead within our community and beyond.
Families and community members: As I write this letter, our students will be returning to school in person, and we will be resuming all UIL activities as usual. Face coverings will be optional unless public safety guidelines change from our local and state health officials. Please visit our website at ACISD.org for more details about our safety protocols. Lastly, I cannot thank you enough for your involvement in our children's lives. Your commitment to your children's education, paired with the Pirate family’s commitment, sends a strong message to our students as we work to provide an outstanding educational experience. We are living through some unique but exciting times full of new opportunities and learning for all involved.
I am proud of the accomplishments within our schools and across the district. I look forward to our continued partnership in the coming school year.
Dr. Joshua Garcia
