Houston Independent School District

The Houston Independent School District or HISD operates schools in Houston, Bellaire, and West University, Texas. HISD also takes students from Southside Place, Texas.

Former HISD Superintendent Rod Paige pushed the district into new heights with the PEER Program. Improving scores from its schools have caused a lot of praise from others nationwide. Kaye Stripling took over when Rod Paige headed to Washington, DC as part of United States President George W. Bush's Bush Administration cabinet.

There is recent controversy over HISD over a New York Times report that alleges that HISD is not reporting school violence to the police.
