Policy Agenda's Aisha aims to combat and reform to better HEB ISD
and to "Be the person you needed when you were younger"
Student Mental Health Awareness
Social Media, lack of support and awareness has led to increasing cases of high school related mental-health cases. Using my educational background, I aim to continue fighting for student mental health.
Create and implement programs that specifically focus on the mental health of all of our students.
Early prevention programs which will include alcohol and drug use.
Introduce and implement new programs that help to deal with stress, anxiety, and choices which will be led by professionals.
Technology awareness programs
Make sure schools have resources to adequately use their counselors for their intended purposes and all potential
High Quality Education Programs
Hundreds of new families flood into our district, and the need for more primary-level education is imminent.
Facilitate educational mandates to include skills that children learn in their schools help shape their futures, both in school and in life.
Universal preschool, additional special skills elective classes, etc.
Over 23,000 students of multiple cultural backgrounds make up HEB ISD. On all three tiers (Wilshire, Central & Trinity the most diverse in all of Texas in their age group)
Let’s embrace the cultural and societal differences. Together we can learn from one another.
Continue to promote new diversity-focused classes and initiatives
Spark a conversation on maternity and paternity leave
New and young teachers and parents are facing dilemmas when it comes to preparing and caring for their new ones.
Work to establish a conversation to pass legislation to allow teachers to take guaranteed family leave and excused day-absences to adequately prepare and take care of their new ones.
