Convocation 2013 focuses on "Transforming the Future" - Video


The phrase, “Transforming the Future,” could be seen on all the neon green shirts faculty and staff wore at the 2013 North East ISD Convocation on August 19 at the Lee High School presentation. Dr. Brian G. Gottardy, superintendent of schools, is kicking off the new school year with a whirlwind tour, over two days. The ‘pep rally’ style convocation gives the district leader the opportunity to share his vision of “Transforming the Future,” as he motivates educators for the coming school year.

Auditoriums filled quickly with more than 4,200 teachers, as well as campus staff, from across the entire district attending. The convocation tour has Dr. Gottardy visiting all seven comprehensive high schools with each campus hosting faculty and staff from that school’s feeder campuses.

The presentation focused on the multitude of changes occurring in education, technology and the NEISD community and the innovative teaching techniques that need to be implemented in order to continue the district’s rigorous standard of, “Every Child, Every Day.”
