CISD: Community Is Key
Comal ISD will eclipse the 22,000-student mark for the first time in its history this school year — and celebrate its 60-year anniversary.
On the final day of the 2015-16 school year, the district had just over 21,000 students.
Joni Coker, Comal ISD’s Executive Director of Elementary Schools, says the 2016 school year got off to a great start earlier this month.
“It’s thrilling to see our parents proudly delivering their kids to our schools on the first day,” Coker said. “It’s a wonderful time and I know our administration, teachers and other faculty and staff are ready to make this the best school year yet.”
“We want to welcome everyone back. I hope you had a wonderful summer,” said Andrew Kim, superintendent. “This is a special year in Comal ISD as we celebrate the district’s 60th anniversary. As we reflect upon our history, I think that it’s important that we realize the success we enjoy today did not happen overnight. Rather, we stand on the shoulders of those who have come before us. Now, it’s our turn to build upon that legacy and continue the traditions that make Comal ISD a great district.”
Kim said be believes communication within the community will be a key factor in Comal ISD’s future.
“I believe that forging strong relationships with one another is the key to sustaining our legacy,” Kim said. “It’s about us getting to know our students, our families and each other so we can be a better district. It’s about you being a part of your child’s learning by supporting your school. It’s about all of us advocating for our children, our teachers and our district. It’s about making the future better in Comal ISD.”
