Superintendent Trevor Rogers
We have no doubt that 2018-2019 will be a great year for Lindsay ISD! Throughout the previous few months, we have worked hard to create plans that will improve the product and the service that we provide our community. Like all schools, we have put a lot of emphasis on safety. Beginning in 2018, LISD will implement a plan that will allow staff volunteers to carry concealed guns on campus. While this may be seen as a farily extreme step, we are committed to doing whatever it takes to keep our students and staff safe. We have also created a Lindsay ISD Foundation that will begin operating this year. The goal of the Foundation will be to encourage staff to use creative lesson plan ideas as they educate our students each day. The Foundation will also provide scholarship opportunites for our graduating seniors. From a curriculum standpoint, we have added a nursing program for our HS students, and we are implementing a more competitive environment for our robotics classes. For our junior high students, we are adding a more well rounded educational program as we are adding ag classes that our JH students can enroll in. Last but not least, we have reviwed our facilites and have come to the conclusion that we need to upgrade our current status. While we are not sure exactly at this time what plan we will pursue, we have organized for a bond proposal in May-2019. Certainly, as we go through the process, we will keep you informed and we will involve you as much as we can as we create the final plan.
As we look forward to the newness of a different school year, we also want to take time and reflect on 2017-2018. ‘17-”18 was a tremendous year started off by our football team who advanced to the 3rd round of the state play-offs with a 10-3 record. Our voleyball program advanced to the Regional Tournament yet again! Our boys basketball program also advanced to the Regional Tournament for the first time in several years and our girls program were bi-district champs! Our girls track team advanced to the state meet as we had several individuals who competed well at the state level. Our boys track team advanced to Regionals along with having a couple individuals advancing to state as well. Both our baseball and our softball teams were bi-district champions marking yet another year in which both programs qualified for post season competition. Our UIL teams were fantastic once again as the HS team finished 2nd in state for the 9th time in school history (we have won it 14 times!) . Included in the UIL results were many first place team and indvidual finishes in a wide range of competitions at the district, regional, and state levels. As part of the UIL process our One Act Play Team advanced to the 3rd round of competition as ther program put another notch in its long history of success! The future of the district’s UIL success is bright as the elementary and the JH UIL teams dominated their respective district competitions. Our ag program showed its strength as we had several students who competed successfully at different events througout the year.
In order for a district to have the amount of success that LISD has had for an extended period of time, there must be a strong contingent of quality staff members who are dedicated to helping students reach their full potential. We are thankful for our staff and their willingness to work with our students to ensure their success. Much of our success is directly tied to the support that our community provides as well. The Lindsay community is always willing to help us whenever we have asked. We are thankful to our community and we appreciate your help and support!
Throuout the year-we will keep you posted on school activites and events through the district’s web site and through our Facebook page at “Lindsay Independent School District.” Please let us know if we can help you in any way or if you have questions regarding the school district.
