Tell me about Aldine ISD.

Aldine ISD has approximately 67,000 students. Eighty-five percent are economically disadvantaged and 24 percent (mobility rate) move from one campus to another or to another district during the course of the school year.

Tell me about the quality of Aldine’s education program.

Broad Prize for Urban Education Aldine was winner of the 2009 Broad Prize for Urban Education, winner of the HEB Excellence in Education Award in 2008, has earned seven Recognized ratings for academic achievement from the Texas Education Agency, and won the 2006 Texas Award for Performance Excellence.

Considering the demographics and quality of Aldine’s educational program, is there a need for business partnerships?

Absolutely. Aldine needs additional assistance to help all of our students perform at the same academic levels as students from more affluent communities. Business partners help Aldine neutralize the impact of poverty and mobility. From Aldine’s point of view, education is everyone’s business.

How can businesses help Aldine ISD remain a high performing school district and continue to improve in the delivery of educational services?

Many campuses express the need for mentors, tutors, assistance with special projects, Texas Scholars and Career Day presenters, and assistance with school supplies.
