Alert

In a growing school system, the district’s attendance zones will inevitably change to accommodate the growth. As a hypergrowth district, we are experiencing significant enrollment increases in some areas. As a result, some schools are over capacity while others have available capacity. The Board may consider leveling plans to balance student enrollment across campuses and alleviate overcrowding.   The district’s process is to collect feedback from community stakeholders regarding attendance boundary options. We specifically look to include parents from the potentially impacted campuses/areas. 

We appreciate everyone who provided input during the attendance boundary committee meetings and the leveling process.

The Lamar CISD Board of Trustees has approved new attendance zones that will impact Austin, Frost, Jackson, Long, Pink, Smith, and Travis Elementary Schools, which will go into effect for the 2024-2025 school year.

⤓ Board Approved Attendance Zones

En un sistema escolar en crecimiento, las zonas de asistencia del distrito cambiarán inevitablemente para adaptarse a este aumento. Como distrito de hipercrecimiento, estamos experimentando aumentos significativos de inscripciones en algunas zonas. Como resultado, algunas escuelas se encuentran por encima de su capacidad mientras que otras tienen capacidad disponible. La Mesa Directiva podría contemplar planes de nivelación para equilibrar las inscripciones de estudiantes en todos los campus y reducir la superpoblación.   El proceso del distrito consiste en recabar opiniones de las partes interesadas en la comunidad en relación a las opciones respecto a los límites de asistencia. Específicamente buscamos incluir a los padres de los campus/áreas que potencialmente se vean afectados. 

Agradecemos a todos los que dieron su opinión durante las reuniones del comité de límites de asistencia y el proceso de nivelación.

La Mesa Directiva de Lamar CISD ha aprobado nuevas zonas de asistencia que afectarán a las escuelas primarias Austin, Frost, Jackson, Long, Pink, Smith y Travis, que entrarán en vigor para el ciclo escolar 2024-2025.

Lamar CISD Names Dr. Roosevelt Nivens Lone Finalist for Superintendent

Apr 06, 2021 | Community Relations

sm-nivens

The Lamar Consolidated ISD School Board at a special meeting held on Tuesday, April 6 announced Dr. Roosevelt Nivens as the “lone finalist” to serve as the district’s next superintendent. The board’s announcement follows an extensive, nationwide search lasting several months. The search process included gathering input from community stakeholders which was used to develop a candidate profile that was nationally advertised. More than 47 candidates applied for the position. The board initially narrowed the field of candidates to five candidates and then two finalists who participated in several comprehensive interviews and visited the district and the surrounding community.

Lamar CISD Board President Joy Williams believes Dr. Nivens is a great fit to serve the district as its next leader.  

“Our board is excited to welcome Dr. Nivens to our community,” said President Williams. “We were fortunate that many quality candidates wanted to come to our district. After an exhaustive process, our trustees became convinced that Dr. Nivens is the right leader for our rapidly growing district and that he will promote a high level of success for all our students.”

Dr. Nivens has served as the Superintendent of Schools for Community ISD since 2015, a school district encompassing four communities located in the southeast corner of fast-growth Collin County in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. His public education career is centered around advocating and supporting the very best educational opportunities for all students. He began his 24-year career as a teacher in Dallas ISD, assistant principal and principal of Lancaster Junior High and Lancaster High School, and Assistant Superintendent of Achievement and Organizational Management in Lancaster ISD. Prior to his public education career, he earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, and his Master of Education and Doctor of Education from Texas A&M-Commerce.

Through his leadership in Community ISD, student safety, high academic achievement and student social-emotional wellbeing were the priorities. Under his administration, the district earned an A-rating in 2018-2019, realized a 20 percent increase in the number of Advanced Placement students receiving a three or higher on the AP exam, and strengthened student participation in dual credit classes with 98 percent earning college and high school credit, and 10 percent of the graduating class earned an associate degree upon high school graduation. Understanding that each student’s path to success is different, he also expanded Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs and CTE professional certifications, which students can use in the workforce upon graduation.

Dr. Nivens looks forward to working with the school board, parents, staff, students and the Lamar CISD community on a shared vision of providing the very best educational experiences for all students.

“Lamar Consolidated ISD is a distinguished school district with a long history of educational excellence. I am honored to be named as lone finalist for superintendent. I look forward to meeting students, teachers, staff, and families soon. Together I believe we can continue and build upon the excellence of Lamar CISD as one family,” said Nivens.

State law requires a 21-day waiting period after a school board names a superintendent “lone finalist” before the future school superintendent can sign a contract.

The Lamar CISD School Board will officially vote on the position at its April 27 meeting.
