Profile of a Graduate Trailer
Profile of a Graduate is a collaboration between district leadership and the community to address the challenges of graduates and employers in the 21st century. The job market is changing faster than ever. Many of the jobs current students will hold in the future don’t exist yet. This is an era in which keeping up means staying ahead.
In a series of brainstorming sessions, more than 60 community leaders representing at least 18 local industries and career fields came together, along with AISD’s executive directors, high school principals, school board members and students. Their challenge was to identify the skills and characteristics necessary to build the dynamic workforce our community needs.
From their vision comes our Profile of a Graduate--scholars who are thinkers, collaborators, contributors and communicators.
We know the foundational expectation of our schools and educators is to teach reading, writing, and math. We remain steadfast in our mission to graduate all students prepared for success beyond high school. But, when our students graduate, we want them to be able to confidently show the world who they are. We believe Profile of a Graduate better defines what that looks like through the eyes of our community.
