Southwest Independent School District

Selection Process

What Matters Most

In Southwest Independent School District, the continuous growth and the success of every student is what matters most, everything SWISD does is to contribute to a better future quality of life for all of our students. To ensure our goal of a better future quality of life for all of our students is a reality, we strive to place strong leaders in every campus, and in every classroom.

In collaboration with The Holdsworth Center, we have developed and committed to the core values of Growth, Service and Results to define what great leadership looks like in Southwest ISD. These core values center around strengthening the leadership skills of our current school leaders while building systems and structures that will allow us to develop the potential already present within the district. We feel that these systems and structures will not only sustain change in our District, but will also allow us to identify and attract top talent.

Our Leadership Commitments constitute district and community-wide input and incorporate the experiences of leaders and staff members at all levels. As our SWISD family continues to grow as both educators and leaders, our Leadership Commitments ensure that we continue to contribute to a better future quality of life for all of our students. To make certain the needs of students and the community are met in every campus, classroom, and department, SWISD has created this rigorous selection process to recruit and select the best qualified school leaders.
