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 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 (TAEA) HAS NAMED LUBBOCK ISD A DISTRICT OF DISTINCTION!
The award is given for providing well-rounded art education programs that advocate for and intergrate visual arts curriculum to inspire creativity and reach all learners.
Congratulations to all the art teachers in Lubbock ISD!
