TCIS seeks members for Advisory Board

Wed Sep 22, 2021

Longview ISD's charter partner Texas Council of International Studies (TCIS) is looking for parents interested in serving and supporting the students in their care.

To that end, Mrs. Linda Buie, TCIS Executive Director, is inviting families of students to join their Local Advisory Council, "to be a vocal presence in our community."

"Local Advisory Council members represent a broad and diverse segment of our community, but they all have one major feature in common: a desire to serve and support the students and schools of TCIS Longview," she said.

TCIS campuses include Bailey Elementary (formerly South Ward), Ned E Williams Elementary, Hudson PEP Elementary, Foster Middle, Judson Middle, and Longview High.

Mrs. Buie explained that the Council meets once a month "for schools to share the happenings on their campuses as well as to be informed about the four International Baccalaureate Programmes, because all TCIS schools will be authorized IB World Schools."

"Our first meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30th.For more information about the event, please contact Mrs. Linda Buie, TCIS Executive Director, via email llbuie@lisd.org or call 903-663-1301.

Texas Council for International Studies is one of three Senate Bill 1882 charter partners operating Longview ISD campuses. SB 1882 is legislation that allows public schools to partner with organizations to operate campuses as charter schools.
