(Seguin) -- New Seguin ISD Superintendent Dr. Matthew Gutierrez is looking to pull in the leadership skills of others in his desire to build an even more successful school district. Sean Hoffmann, the public information officer for the Seguin ISD, says Dr. Gutierrez is currently working to build a support system that begins with the students themselves.
"The 90 day plan that Dr. Gutierrez has in place -- he is organizing several community committees. The first of these will be a superintendent student advisory team. This team will be comprised of -- you guessed it -- students
from Seguin ISD schools. Invitations for this particular committee should be going out this week. So this will be an opportunity for key students from each Seguin ISD campus. These student representatives will meet with Dr. Gutierrez monthly throughout the school year so that he can receive feedback from them (and) find out where improvements can be made in the school and also get the celebratory items, great things that are happening in Seguin ISD schools, from a student's perspective," said Hoffmann.
Hoffmann says of course, Dr. Gutierrez will also be turning to the community for additional insight into the goals and needs of the school district.
"Additionally Dr. Gutierrez is also putting together a couple of different committees. These will involve key communicators from the Seguin ISD community. Again these will be held throughout the school year. He's putting
a list together and will be contacting these individuals. Again it's to get feedback from the community, parents, business leaders, members of the religious community here in Seguin to receive their feedback on Seguin ISD
schools and also improve in areas that we can. Of course the scoreboard will be working, this has been talked about at a couple of our board meetings on lining up individuals for a facilities committee. This will start this fall. Again stakeholders will be identified to serve and serve as sounding boards for Seguin ISD's future on how to plan our facilities. What needs to be updated, what our facilities should look like over the next five to 10 years,"
District officials say the appointed committees -- once in place -- will meet monthly throughout the entire school year.
