WEBINAR RECAP - Navigating the Houston ISD Budget with HISD Trustee Sue Deigaard

Houstonians for Great Public Schools

driving student success with strong school boards

What We Do:


Advocate for student-centered policy priorities that improve the conditions in public schools for students to succeed


Support and elect leaders who advance those policies on local school district boards


Unite parents, voters, candidates, and elected leaders around a shared agenda for transformational change in Houston school districts

GPS-endorsed school board leaders will:

Prioritize students

Prioritize student outcomes in all decisions about resource allocation:  human resources, financial resources, and time. 


Support the creation of high quality, public school options, especially in neighborhoods that do not have access to great public schools.

Remain accountable

Use academic accountability data to make decisions to improve student achievement, and ensure all data is transparent and readily available to families.


Commit to immediate and persistent action to improve D and F rated schools.
