Join us for our next School Board Meeting, Wednesday, January 28 at 7 p.m.


A Work of Heart

In Texas, January is School Board Appreciation Month. I’d like to take a moment and recognize the work of the Lancaster ISD Trustees who serve countless unpaid hours to develop policies and make decisions that help shape the future of Lancaster ISD students.

The school board encourages continuous improvement in student learning and advocates at the local, state, and federal levels in support of public education. School board membership is one of the most personally demanding forms of public service as they spend countless hours preparing for and participating in monthly meetings. Our trustees are responsible for formulating and approving school district policies, approving school curricula and maintaining school facilities. Legal concerns and the complexities of school finance, including budgeting and taxation, require them to spend many hours in board training programs to enhance their understanding. In addition to devoting a great deal of time to studying education issues and laws, they listen to the concerns of parents and teachers throughout Lancaster ISD.

The men and women who have a huge impact on public education and who have been elected to represent you in volunteer service as school board members are:

Ellen Clark
Cynthia Corbin-Jarvis
Rhonda Davis-Crawford
Marion Hamilton
Robbie Johnson
Ty G. Jones – President
LaRhonda Mays

Our deepest appreciation is extended to the dedicated men and women whose commitment and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in Lancaster ISD possible. I invite you to join me in thanking the members of our school board for all that they do to ensure Excellence Every Day for the students of Lancaster ISD.

Sincerely,

Dr. Michael D. McFarland
Lancaster ISD Superintendent of Schools
