Temple ISD Mission


The mission of the Temple Independent School District is to prepare students to be life-long learners who are productive in 21st Century College and Work Life.


Library Mission and Purpose


The school library media program in Temple Independent School District (TISD) is a primary resource for literacy, information, and curriculum support. The school library contributes to the achievement of the desired results for student learning by providing instruction, resources, and activities that enable students and staff to become effective, independent users of ideas and information for lifelong learning. Research shows that a school library with certified staffing, adequate funding, and a rich collection of materials has a positive impact on student achievement. Our school librarians develop collaborative relationships with teachers in order to build a collection that is reflective of all patrons.  This healthy relationship creates many opportunities for co-teaching, lesson planning, and flexible scheduling.
