Founded in 1836, the City of Houston has a population of 1.9 million. Houston metro area's population of 4.8 million is 10th largest among U.S. metropolitan statistical areas. Houstonians eat out more than residents of any other city. Houston has more than 11,000 restaurants. Home to 18 Fortune 500 companies and more than 5,000 energy related firms, Houston is considered by many as the Energy Capital of the world. Companies headquarted in Houston include Halliburton, ConocoPhillips, Marathon Oil Corp and Dynegy </p><p>Houston is home to the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, with a local economic impact of $10 billion. More than 52,000 people work within its facilities, which encompass 21 million square feet. Altogether 4.8 million patients visit them each year. </p><p>Houston has the second lowest cost of living among major American cities </p><p>**3735****</p><p>The Houston Independent School District is the largest public school system in Texas and the seventh-largest in the United States. Its schools are dedicated to giving every student the best possible education through an intensive core curriculum and specialized, challenging instructional and career programs. **HISD has long maintained the lowest property tax rate among districts in Harris County and has the second-lowest property tax rate among the 13 largest school districts in Texas.HISD spends nearly 70% of our budget on YOU our employees.*.*.</p><p>Most HISD schools are assigned to one of five regions (North, East, South, West, and Central)with offices located in communities to give students and parents personalized service and immediate assistance. School employees should know what region they belong to. </p><p>Alternative and external charter schools are located throughout the district to provide a menu of schools and programs that meet the needs of students who benefit from a nontraditional educational environment. The district's schools and programs strive to provide quality instruction by utilizing a myriad of strategic interventions and innovative enrichments tailored to meet the unique educational and developmental needs of these students. AnAlternative and Charter Schools Officemanages those types of schools. </p><p>*The Houston Independent School District and the district's Board of Education invite you to explore the many links and resources provided here on this page as well as the entire site. They will help you to learn more about HISD and the many things that the district is doing to give every child in Houston a world-class education.The largest public school system in Texas and the seventh-largest in America, the Houston Independent School District is a national leader in educational achievement, innovation, and reform. The winner of the inaugural Broad Prize for Urban Education, HISD is succeeding in its efforts to increase achievement, accountability, and effectiveness districtwide.HISD policy is set by the nine trustees on the Board of Education. Elected to staggered four-year terms from separate geographic districts, they represent the residents of their individual districts but also serve the larger community as a whole. The trustees are guided by "A Declaration of Beliefs and Visions." Adopted in 1990 and reaffirmed by the board in 2001 and 2004, "Beliefs and Visions" launched a districtwide reform movement dedicated to improving scholastic performance by focusing resources on students and schools and establishing critical decision-making and accountability at the campus level. To maintain student success, HISD has built a number of early-childhood centers throughout the district; is working to raise the graduation rate by creating smaller, more personalized learning communities and carrying out the action plans developed at the district's communitywide "expectation: GRADUATION" summit; and is reguiring sixth- and seventh-grade studentsand all eligible high-school students to take more-demanding Pre-Advanced Placement and Advanced Placement courses.HISD trustees urge every Houstonian to become involved in the district by participating in school board elections and informing themselves of the board's actions (seeInformed Source). It is also important for parents and the general public to become involved at the school level by volunteering time, expertise, and resources. Education is such a big job that HISD can't do it alone; it needs assistance from citizens, businesses, and community organizations that care about the future of Houston's children and the city. Please join HISD's ongoing efforts to prepare Houston's children for successful lives and careers. By doing so, you will help to ensure a brighter future for them and for this great city.Every January the Board of Education elects officers. Lawrence Marshall is the Board President for 2009. Mr. Marshall a former HISD educator was elected to the board in1997.</p><p>The Board of Education is the official policy-making body of the Houston Independent School District. The nine trustees, elected from separate districts, serve staggered four-year terms. The board holds public meetings at 5:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of every month. The meetings are held in the HISD Board Auditorium, 4400 West 18th Street. Printed agendas are available from the Board...</p></li></ul>
