Public Education

Lackland Independent School District is one of sixteen public Independent School Districts in the San Antonio area who have joined the Go Public collaborative.  Go Public highlights the tremendous opportunities afforded to public school students.  Public schools provide a continuum of free education programs to include gifted and talented programs; Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) programs; advanced placement coursework; career and technical education; and educational programs based on individualized and specialized needs.  Lackland ISD’s work is governed by a phenomenal Board of Trustees that advocates for students and the district.  They garner on-going support for the programs we offer to fulfill our mission towards Future Readiness in career and college aspirations.  Further, our teachers have the required credentials, commitment, and love for children to ensure the experiences provided are enriching.  

College. Career. Life Ready

One of the many faces of public education is Lackland ISD's fifth grader, Alayna Factuar.  Alayna's photograph is featured below to demonstrate her engagement in the GAMER institute that was held at Lackland Elementary School this past summer.  The Institute facilitated by Lackland ISD's Gifted and Talented Facilitator, Mrs. Vickie Johnson, and Instructional Technologist, Dana Kickler, combined content, hands-on activities, opportunities to cultivate leadership values, an exploration of academic disciplines through a real-world lens and the development of confidence and key 21st-century skills.  Alayna shared that she was really excited to see the billboard which is located at SW Military (SS .3mi E/O Whitewood F/W - 2).  She couldn't believe that it was so big.  "It made me feel so proud.  At Lackland, I've had more opportunities for art, music, and technology."  We too are proud of the opportunities afforded to our military-connected students and are thankful for parents like the Factuar's who support our work and the work of other public schools.  To find out more about the Go Public program go to http://www.wegopublic.com/whygopublic.html.
