Dear Red Lick ISD Families:
Welcome to the Red Lick Independent School District for the 2017-2018 school year. This will be an exciting year and the Board of Trustees and I welcome the returning students back and a special welcome to those who will be walking through the doors of a Red Lick campus for the first time.
The District continues to grow with a projected enrollment of 522 students which is an increase of 23 students over the previous year. New and improved programs are being added for 2017-2018. For the first time we will be offering Spanish in grades K-4. We have offered the Spanish program in K-2. A dedicated Technology Applications program K-4 which will allow students to obtain basic knowledge in Computer Applications, Coding, and Robotics at the appropriate grade level. Also, a dedicated Technology Applications program will be added to the Middle School curriculum and Yearbook class will be offered for the first time at Middle School.
Not only is the District working to improve its curriculum, it is continually working to improve its facilities. Classrooms are being modified to meet the needs of the new Spanish and Technology Application classes. Two new classrooms are coming to the Red Lick Middle School.
Two organizations very supportive of Red Lick Independent School District are the Red Lick Education Foundation and Parent-Teacher-Community Organization (PTCO). As Superintendent I encourage you to become involved in one or both of these organizations’ activities.
The Board, consisting of Justin Maynard, President, David Price, Vice President, Monica Harrison, Secretary, and members Travis Strate, Carley Buxton, Andrew Venable, and John Floyd are working on behalf of the parents, community, staff, and students to insure a quality education is being offered in Red Lick schools. It is truly the intent of the Board and the staff of Red Lick ISD to pursue the RLISD’s mission, “Preparing and Empowering Students for a Changing Tomorrow”.
Thank you for choosing Red Lick ISD for 2017-2018,
Nick Blain, Superintendent
