I am proud to share the news that once again Alief ISD has been named a Houston Chronicle Top Workplace. Let me share this letter that was sent to all staff this morning…
Allow me to start off your Monday on the last week of instruction before a whole week off with some great news! Once again, Alief ISD has been named a Houston Chronicle Top Workplace! This honor was announced in yesterday’s edition of the Chronicle. We were listed as one of the top large companies in the greater Houston area to work. The Top Workplace designation is awarded based on yearly survey results from our employees.
You may find it interesting that this competition is open to all large companies from industry sectors like energy, finance and healthcare. School districts are included with these industries, so it is not just an award for school districts. Even during a pandemic, our employees are Alief Proud through and through!
This is now the fifth consecutive year that Alief ISD has been named as a Top Workplace by the Chronicle. For a school district to earn this achievement one time is exceptional, to earn it for five consecutive years is almost unheard of. While I realize there are many areas where we can improve as an organization, I do hope we all take a little time to celebrate the times our efforts are recognized and be grateful for the opportunity to serve in a school system (and profession) that continually seeks to improve the education experiences for students and staff.
I am very proud of this honor and I hope you are as well. We are fortunate to have a School Board and community that support the types of efforts that lead to a meaningful work environment in Alief ISD. The Board and I realize that you are all overwhelmed during this pandemic and want to thank you for ensuring that Alief ISD remains a great place to work. Be sure and tell your neighbors and friends and all those on your social media channels that Alief has once again been honored as a Top Workplace.
Thank you again for what you do for our students
Alief ISD Superintendent
