The Fine Arts mission is to provide resources, continuing education, and support for all the fine arts teachers in every organization in order to provide modern, equitable, and excellent educational experiences to every child in Lubbock ISD, every day.
Lubbock ISD Fine Arts Department has been made aware of a petition sponsored by change.org titled "Save Orchestra for LISD Orchestra". This petition is in no way linked to the Lubbock ISD orchestra program. The district's fine arts programs have constant and overwhelming support from its trustees, superintendent, administrators and educators. There are 25 school districts in Texas that go by the acronym "LISD" which causes confusion statewide. Lubbock ISD is making every effort to grow its orchestra program and we hope this sets the record straight. We invite you to contact LUBBOCK ISD Fine Arts Department or the Office of Communications and Community Relations with questions or concerns.
Lubbock ISD has been honored for the third year in a row with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education.
The Best Communities Music Education designation is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. To qualify for the Best Communities designation, Lubbock ISD answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program, and community music-making programs.
The Texas Art Education Association named Lubbock ISD a District of Distinction!
The award is given for providing well rounded education that advocates and integrates visual arts curriculum to inspire creativity and reach all different learners.
Only 20 districts met the high standard and will receive the outstanding honor indicating they are in the top 2 percent of districts in the state. The twenty districts, including Lubbock ISD will be honored at the TAEA Awards ceremony as part of the TAEA Conference on Friday, November 15, 2019. The event will take place at Moody Gardens Convention Center in Galveston, TX.
