• Waco ISD’s theme for the 2020-2021 school year is “Empower All. Value All.” The theme reflects the district's mission "to provide an educational foundation that empowers and values all." It celebrates learning and growing as students, professionals and individuals. Waco ISD recognizes that when individuals feel empowered and valued, their ability to overcome challenges, grow and succeed is strengthened. However, the district also recognizes that no individual or organization can thrive and accomplish their goals or mission alone. Instead, we are at our best when families, employees and the community join together to realize their shared hopes and dreams to empower and value all students and staff and support their future. 

    Waco ISD is blessed to have scores of community partners who are deeply invested in the district's students, staff and their success. Each month, the district is recognizing a community partner making a difference with the 2020-2021 Waco ISD Award for Outstanding Community Partners.   

    A list of honorees is included below. Pictures and more information about each of the honorees and their partnerships with Waco ISD can be found by clicking on the month/honoree name at the bottom of this page.
