Superintendent's Message


                                                                     

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! Our theme for this school year is “Preparing for Success”! You have my commitment that with your help and support, we will do everything within our power to help prepare our students for their future.  Lackland ISD is an integral part of Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland Air Force Base. We are honored to have the opportunity to serve the dependents of our remarkable and dedicated military service members! Summer is safely behind us and we are excited about all of the opportunities that await us.  Our teachers and staff are ready to welcome all of our students for another exciting school year!  This past summer, we continued our renovation project focusing on building 8246 (located on the Stacey Jr/Sr High School campus) which included remodeling bathrooms, replacing flooring and ceiling tiles, and fresh paint throughout the building.  Students will come back to a newly renovated building with new classroom furniture and upgraded technology in each classroom.  We also renovated a small section of building 8218 (located on the Lackland Elementary campus) to create a wheelchair accessible restroom for those individuals with special needs.  We are working with our architect to finalize plans for a new playground for our older elementary students.  

We are excited about the upcoming school year! We are honored you have chosen to be a part of the Lackland Independent School District family. We have a proud tradition of academic excellence and hope to continue this tradition with your help and support. Our dedicated administrators, teachers, and staff look forward to serving our students and ensuring they have a successful school year.  We recognize and appreciate the sacrifice that the parents of our students make every day as members of the Armed Forces.  Therefore we strive to provide a learning environment that is safe and nurturing so that parents can focus on their mission.  We welcome your input and presence on our campuses because we realize that we cannot be successful without you.

We look forward to another great school year as we continue to educate the best students in the world!  We thank you for choosing Lackland ISD and ask for your support as we provide the best education possible for all of our students.

 

                                                                                Sincerely,

                                                                       

                                                                                Dr. Burnie L. Roper
