FISD is pleased to announce Andrew Rohrs as the new FISD Athletic Director and Head Football Coach.
“Coach Rohrs has an enthusiasm that is contagious and inspiring. He has a vision not only for the athletic program, but also for how the program fits into the community. I am so excited for our athletes, district and community,” said Dr. Bays.
Coach Rohrs graduated from Greenville High School where he participated in football, baseball and track. He then attended Greenville College, where he played football as a defensive lineman. Coach Rohrs graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Biology Education.
This school year will complete Coach Rohrs’ sixteenth season coaching high school football, ten years of which he has held the position of Offensive Coordinator. The past three years, he served as the Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach at Ronald Reagan High School in San Antonio. During that time, he was fortunate to be a part of 33 wins, three consecutive undefeated District Championships, and playoff appearances each year, including a 6A Division I Quarterfinals run. Along with this experience, Coach Rohrs has had the opportunity to work in a number of very diverse schools. His career in Texas, prior to Reagan, included Troup High School and Pflugerville Connally.
Coach Rohrs is married to Becky, who currently works as a Physician Assistant. She is a daughter of a long time Texas football coach. They have one son, Harris (11) who already loves the game of football. Coach Rohrs and his family are excited to become active members of the Floresville community.
Coach Rohrs understands the tremendous responsibility that comes with guiding the Athletic Department of Floresville ISD. He cannot wait to begin the process of building a program known not only for winning, but also for developing young men and women of great character.

Read in Dr. Bays' blog about parental involvement, this week, as FISD celebrated Read Across America as well as some other great stories we shared in February.
Jason Pfluger, FHS Baseball Coach, is passionate about baseball, but he’s more passionate about making sure the young men he coaches have the skills they need to be good citizens of his hometown. “I want them to be successful when they move on after high school and be the best husbands and fathers they can be. Hopefully, the skills that we teach them through baseball will help them reach these goals,” said Pfluger. Dr. Bays recognized Coach Pfluger for all he does to include the community in his program while providing learning opportunities for his players. Click above to read more.

At FMS, this year, a new philosophy is changing the way students and teachers are looking at learning. After noticing that students failing classes weren’t failing because their grades were low, but because they had missing assignments, FMS decided they were going to change the culture. The book, Brick House-How to Defeat Student Apathy by Building a Brick House Culture by Danny Hill, has guided staff to help every student complete EVERY assignment at a satisfactory level. Assignments are now called “Practice for Learning” and, instead of deducting points for late work, work is graded solely on the student’s mastery of the content, even if it took that student extra time to master it.

Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? Kim Cathey does because she is using her strengths to do it: Achiever, Individualization, Competition, Relator and Communication. Those strengths help her understand what people want to know and the most effective ways of getting our message to our stakeholders. You don’t have to talk to Mrs. Cathey long, before you realize how energized and enthusiastic she is about the work she does as the FISD Communication Specialist. Her passion for public schools and kids is evident in her words and actions, and her commitment to tell FISD’s story is unwavering. She said, “Public educators do the most important and meaningful work, creating an educated society. Our future as a community, state, nation and world depends on the availability of a quality public education for ALL kids. I’m not sure how anybody couldn’t be passionate about that.” (click above to read more)
