Dr. Kathy Rollo on First 9 Weeks of LISD School and Bond Election
Wednesday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, the Superintendent of Lubbock ISD Dr. Kathy Rollo joined Dave and Matt to talk about how things have been going for LISD schools in the first 9 weeks and what changes have been made, as well as the upcoming bond election.
With the first 9 weeks of school over, Dr. Rollo is happy with how the schools have been doing, and the changes that they have made.
"We've had an excellent start. It's been great. Everything's been smooth, students are working hard, everything's going well."
Over the past several months, LISD has made several strides in improving school safety in preparation for the new school year. LISD has had safety audits to see what needed to be changed, had community meetings, held behavioural training for staff, LISD police, teachers, and students, added officers to the LISD force and enhanced their relationship with the LPD, hired a Marine to help prevent dangerous situations, work with counselors, check locked doors, and more.
Despite all the improvements they have made in safety, Dr. Rollo stressed that they were still not able to do everything they wanted on the current budget. A Bond Election will be held on November 6th that will help them with school safety equipment, such as having improved PA systems, more cameras, and automatic locks on doors. The bond will also help with the merging of three elementary schools in Lubbock into one big school.
