TORRES: Diversity helps showcase Lufkin ISD’s excellence

November 1808:30 AM
 

In this season of thankfulness, I must admit I am thankful to have the best job in the world. As your superintendent of schools, I have the privilege to serve the staff, parents and students of Lufkin ISD. As I reflect on the opportunities our students have enjoyed so far during the 2019-20 school year, I would be remiss not to first celebrate our diversity. Our students are a reflection of our world with diverse thoughts, cultures and backgrounds. The one statistic that we wrestle with daily is that we are around 80% low income. We work to make the school culture the leveling agent, so that all students have an opportunity to learn and succeed. This year, we implemented the Community Eligibility Program, where all students can eat free breakfast and lunch. In October we served 3,296 more breakfasts and 9,139 more lunches than we did in October last year. Those statistics speak volumes to the success of the program so that all students can concentrate on academics instead of hunger. view article  arw
