LISD Special Back to School Section (Fall 2002)

IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR! 2001-2002 IN LUBBOCK ISD

Lubbock ISD celebrated the 2001-2002 school year with hundreds of student and staff accomplishments and awards. As the song says, " It was a very good year!" However, all years where students learn are good years and we want to congratulate last school year's achievers as we prepare for a new year of students and staff getting the best reward of all, learning and teaching.

Last years achievements included:
Lubbock ISD named a Recognized school district, the highest rating any large school district (20,000 plus students) in Texas achieved.

Lubbock ISD celebrated 14 Exemplary campuses and 20 Recognized campuses with the Texas Education Agency's campus ratings system.

Lubbock ISD's four high schools advanced to the State Academic Decathlon competition for the second consecutive year, with Lubbock High's Decathlon team claiming third in the nation at the national competition in Arizona.

Lubbock ISD graduated over 1,650 seniors with better than 25% becoming honors graduates and over 50% planning to continue into higher education or advanced technology schools.

Lubbock ISD sold over 10 million dollars in education bonds with 5 million technology dollars designated for new technology throughout the district for the fifth consecutive year.

Lubbock ISD welcomed over 700 students, free of charge, from surrounding school districts who wished to take advantage of choice programs in medicine, engineering, law, academics and special competitive athletic programs that only Lubbock ISD can offer them each year!

LISD students and staff contributed over $382,000 to United Way, March of Dimes, September 11th Fund, South Plains Food Bank U-Can-Share, the American Heart Association, Hospice, the Leukemia Foundation and other social support organizations as part of their community support character support activities.

The community, volunteers, corporations and businesses donated almost two-million dollars in financial resources and time to the individual campuses of the Lubbock ISD.

LISD students received 49 regional, 132 state and 40 national academic and performance awards. LISD staff members were cited with four regional, 23 state and four national Awards for their performance as educators.

Those are some of the over 100 reasons we are Proud to be in LISD!


2002-2003 School Year Brings Revisions to Student Code of Conduct
Each school year the Student Code of Conduct is reviewed by District administrators and approved by the Board of Trustees to verify that it meets student and community needs. At times changes are made to correspond to those expectations and the 2002-2003 school year is no different.

For those unfamiliar with the Student Code of Conduct, simply put, it incorporates into one document the district's discipline management plan, student conduct expectations, and dress code..

SPECIFIC CHANGES FOR 2002-2003:

SIGN-OFF SHEETS
In an effort to make the book more parent friendly, as well as to reduce paperwork, several parent sign-off sheets have been moved from the Code of Conduct to the Student Enrollment Form. Those sign-off sheets include: Student Code of Conduct acknowledgment, corporal punishment permission, and electronic usage permission. Moving these items to the Student Enrollment Form will reduce the number of documents parents and teachers must handle at the beginning of the school year.

ELECTRONIC DEVICES
Electronic devices, listening devices, or viewing devices are not allowed, unless specific permission is given.

DRESS CODE

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISD STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT MANUAL AND DISCUSS IT WITH YOUR STUDENTS AT YOUR EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY.
