Axtell ISD has reached Stage 3 in the Digital Convergence Framework!
Axtell ISD is one Modern Teacher's smallest partner districts with 2 schools, 854 students, and ~60 instructional staff. Axtell, Texas is located 15 minutes East of Waco, a town best known as the home of Baylor University and the home of Chip and Joanna Gaines, HGTV stars of the show Fixer Upper.
Axtell began their journey with a score of 1.2 on the Digital Convergence scale with Modern Curriculum taking the lead. As Axtell's Digital Convergence Strategy Officer, Lisette Casey had her first day onsite in June of 2016. Over the course of the last 10 months, Lisette met with Axtell leadership onsite seven times and held several virtual check-ins. The leadership team usually had "homework" in between strategy days as well. They will meet next in April with an additional eight staff members joining the Leadership Team to begin to tackle additional Success Indicators in Modern Curriculum, which is, ironically, lagging behind all other Drivers.
When asked by Axtell's Superintendent how they can best continue to grow, Lisette emphasized the message from the top in creating a resonant culture of progress. Thanks to all Modern Teacher Team Members for supporting Axtell's growth and achievement in the Framework!
