SHEPHERD — Shepherd ISD received news that every campus in the district would receive the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools award for the 2022-2023 school year.

This award is considered both a high aspiration and an exemplary recognition of excellence.

Recipients are recognized for producing exemplary outcomes using the Capturing Kids’ Hearts Process. Award winners go the extra mile each day, creating the social-emotional safety on school campuses that is conducive to learning.

A total of 468 schools in the country were recognized.

Capturing Kids’ Hearts was first introduced to Shepherd ISD in 2021. Since then, district administrators have committed to investing in training, expert coaching, and character-based curriculum that fosters student connectedness and grows a relationship-driven culture.

Through its implementation, educators gained the skills they needed to change the trajectory of students’ lives. Since implementation, administrators and teachers attest to the benefits the program has brought to their campuses.

They are consistently reporting improvements in academic, behavioral, and cultural outcomes.
