Lohn ISD among twelve schools vying for award

Lohn Independent School District is among 12 Texas schools eligible for consideration of nomination for the 2000-2001 National Title I Distinguished Schools Award. The award is designed to identify schools that are worthy of recognition for their progress towards providing all students with opportunities to achieve the state’s academic standards of excellence. Jim Nelson, the Texas Commissioner of Education, has the opportunity to nominate five schools from Texas to receive this award from the National Association of State Title I Directors, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education. A two-member review team was on campus at Lohn School for two days last week where the team evaluated the overall academic program by interviewing teachers, administrators, support staff and parents. In addition to the interview process, the team made formal observations in classrooms and reviewed school data. LISD Principal Dickye Moore said, “We feel honored that we qualify for consideration as one of the five Texas schools that will receive the National Title I Distinguished Schools Award. The review team was very complimentary of our school, teachers and students. Being one of only 12 schools in Texas that qualify for this award in 2000-2001 is quite an accomplishment.”
