Tippit Graphic
 “Beliefs shape visions, and visions drive missions. Visions are not accomplished; they are realized. Missions are sets of goals that must be accomplished for visions to be realized.”

"The business of schools is to design, create, and invent high-quality, intellectually demanding schoolwork that students find engaging."                                             

  Dr. Phillip C. Schlechty                                                                                                                                 

Georgetown ISD Vision and Mission

These statements are at the center of Tippit's efforts to improve student achievement. Our job is to create work that students find engaging. This is the idea behind "Working on the Work" (WOW)... creating quality work that encourages students to do more than merely comply with what is being asked of them, but engages them.
