Our Mission

  • The mission of the Willis Independent School District is to function as One Team, One Purpose, as we develop in each student the knowledge, skills and behaviors essential for life-long learning and for productive, responsible citizenship.

Core Beliefs and Core Commitments

  • We believe every child counts; every child learns. We will provide the opportunity for a successful future by teaching every child to think.

    We believe the education of all children is the responsibility of the family, school district, and community. We will communicate, encourage, be responsive to, and seek input and participation from students, their families, staff, and community.

    We believe each employee is valuable and has a profound impact on student learning. We will invest in highly qualified human talent, engage them in teamwork and learning communities and provide focused training to ensure they will be active contributors to academic achievement and student success. We will treat each employee with fairness, empower each employee to focus on high performance, and hold each employee accountable for results that contribute to student achievement and success.

    We believe the equitable allocation of resources ensures each student will have the opportunity to become productive citizens. We will operate effectively and efficiently within the limits of local, state, and federal budget constraints with fiscal accountability.

    We believe all students learn best in a safe, supportive, and secure environment. We will ensure that the learning and work environments are safe and nurturing so that each student and staff member will achieve high levels of performance.
