After the opening and invocation by Board of Education President David Holder, Superintendent Jones gave special thanks to those responsible for helping with the program and to Board of Education members for their continued service.

Castleberry ISD has had many construction projects over the summer and the last year improving facilities throughout the District. There was an overview of the highlights, including the new Gary S. Jones Administration Building, Castleberry High School’s gym and library renovations, as well as numerous Technology summer projects.

1. Instructional Rounds
2. Infused Lessons
3. Purposeful Planning
4. Blooms Taxonomy
5. Interventions

Mr. Jones also reiterated the culture at Castleberry ISD stating “We will continue to model high expectations for students, teachers, and staff.”

• Student Achievement
• Student Progress
• Closing Performance Gaps
• Post-Secondary Readiness

The principals of all six campuses were honored with a beautiful plaque commemorating their outstanding achievement:

• Amie Davenport, A.V. Cato Elementary
• Hollie Lancarte, Castleberry Elementary
