Sat Feb 10, 2018

Longview ISD Board of Trustees spent the better part of Saturday, Feb. 10 considering district priorities for 2018.

Board members heard presentations and received reports from various educational departments highlighting the district's progress over the last year. At the conclusion of staff presentation, trustees restated district goals for the coming year.

Goals for Longview ISD continuing in 2018 include:
1.) Improving recruitment and retention of quality personnel.
2.) Improving communication with parents and the general public.
3.) All schools meeting state standard, as well as performing at state level in math and science.
4.) Improving social/life skills of Longview Early Graduation HS Students.
5.) Improving/maintaining district grounds and facilities.

"Looking at these goals, I don't see anything that I would want to replace or change, but rather see them continue on," said board president Dr. Mark Camp. "The continued strong performance by our students shows the quality of staff we have here. They are meeting and often even exceeding these ambitious goals."

Trustees each voiced there agreement, praising the work of the various administrators and staff for the measurable progress made during the last year.

Superintendent Dr. James Wilcox thanked the board for their continued support, and added that Longview ISD will continue to work to "not only meet but riase the bar."

"If you just look at the numbers, you can see the obvious progress being made year-in and year-out, but more important than the numbers are the opportunities being afforded to our students," he said. "Our focus will remain on helping all of our students reach their potential."
