Superintendent's Office

Dr. Cain Dear Friends,

What an exciting start we have had to the 2013-2014 school year! As I have had the opportunity to walk through hallways and visit classrooms, I have been impressed by our teachers and students.

Educators are well-acquainted with the term "time on task." It means trying to spend every minute of every class period focused on teaching and learning. "Time on task" will be the key component to a successful year for Waco ISD.

The first month of school has no doubt been filled with highlights. We have opened a manufacturing academy that is teaching high tech job skills that are needed by local industries. We have seen wonderful students at University High reach new heights in performing the school's first musical production. And we have welcomed Tarleton State University as a partner to form two new Professional Development Schools. These accomplishments are just the tip of the iceberg of what we are doing and will continue to do to make Waco ISD a shining star in Texas.

Thank you students, parents, teachers, support staff and administrators for the outstanding job you've done so far.

Keep up the great work!


Bonny Cain
