Go Public is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) like no other in the country. Sixteen San Antonio-area Independent School Districts came together and formed the Go Public campaign. Under the direction of its Steering Committee and Executive Director, the campaign promotes the message that public education provides more choices and opportunities in preparing all students for college and career in three ways:
1. Highlight and showcase student and school success with features and stories on social and local media. 2. Provide opportunities for schools to promote the wonderful things happening every day and connect further with their communities with initiatives like Cool Schools and Heroes for Health. 3. Educate the San Antonio community about the benefits of public education.
This five minute video by Northside ISD communications student, Hannah Garcia, captures the history and rationale behind the formation of Go Public.
THE SIXTEEN SAN ANTONIO-AREA ISDs
With schools focused on educating students, Go Public provides support in educating parents and the community about the benefits of public education. Independent School Districts/ISDs are the glue that binds communities together. From governance by a School Board to businesses that donate to extracurricular clubs, students are surrounded by a strong network of support. ISDs prepare students to be successful in life through a wide variety of choices and opportunities that support academic, social and character development. College and career readiness are the outcomes gained from dedicated teachers, counselors and staff. ISDs are proud to state that they serve all students at all skill levels.
