We are proud of our tradition of excellence but are moving forward aggressively in meeting the changing needs of the 21st Century learner. In 2015-2016, the District introduced “Interstate 35 Schools – Paving the Road to Greatness.” Obviously a play on words because of our district’s name – but that is exactly what we’re doing in moving forward in meeting the needs of current and future students at Interstate 35.
Since 2015-2016, the following plans have been made and are in various stages of implementation.
Major increased availability of technology throughout the entire district
1:1 technology initiative for all grade 6-12 students
New curriculum review/revision/alignment process based on research and best practice.
Facility updates and improvements throughout our PK-12 facility.

$15 million phased additions projects
New Career and Technical Education (CTE) and maintenance facility (approximately 15,000 square feet with 8,000 shop area to house Industrial Technology and Agriculture academic programs, as well as maintenance).
New Fine Arts Center (approximately 13,000 square feet to house K-12 music and secondary art programs).
New 600 seat auditorium
Air conditioning throughout the district
The CTE/maintenance facility is scheduled to open in January 2018 with the other projects to immediately follow. Updates and pictures on construction are available elsewhere on our district’s website. The District’s mission statement is: “The Interstate 35 Community School District exists to develop life-long learners and responsible, productive, successful citizens in an ever changing society.” As a district, we have taken the mission to heart and having it drive our actions and planning.
