A Message from the Superintendent: 

It is truly an honor and privilege to serve as your Superintendent of Schools. As I travel across our “612 Square Miles of Excellence”, I am constantly reminded just how fortunate we are to be surrounded by such bright articulate students, outstanding dedicated teachers and staff, a visionary Board of Trustees, parents who truly desire the best for their children and community members who are committed to making a difference in the lives our students. It is clearly evident that the Victoria ISD is truly a special place to be. 

We believe that as educators, our primary focus is to provide all children in our community the opportunity to develop their mental, moral and physical capabilities to their maximum potential. Our students are our most important resource and the “core value” of every decision we make. By working together and focusing on “Every Child, Every Classroom, Every Day” we can and will continue to offer our students the quality of education they so richly deserve. We must also realize that preparing our students for the workforce is secondary to our responsibility to prepare them for success in life.

In the VISD, we realize that we are not in the education business serving people we are in the people business serving education. We are also extremely proud to be named as a Texas Education Agency “District of Innovation.”

On behalf of our Board of Trustees and the entire Victoria Independent School District, thank you for challenging us to do more, to learn more, to dream more, and, most importantly, to become more. We realize that choice not chance determines our destiny and we thank you for choosing to believe in us. We are “VISD PROUD”
