Acknowledgements and Awards
The Lockhart Independent School District received two acknowledgements from the Texas Education Agency for the 2004-2005 school year.  First was an accountability rating of “Academically Acceptable”, which is based upon TASK and SDAA II results, dropout rates, and high-school completion rates.  The second was a Gold Performance Acknowledgement stating that the LISD had “Commended Performance in the study of Writing.”

Over the past few years, 2003-2005, each sector of schools(elementary thru high-school) in the LISD have seen considerable rises in student passing percentages for tests in reading, writing, and mathematics. Additionally, an online report card, implemented by www.myschools.com shows the increase of our high-school graduation rate from 84.2% in 2003 to 88.5% in 2005, which surpasses the Texas state average.

Lockhart Junior High School was recognized as a 2007 No Child Left Behind -- Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.Only 23 schools in Texas were selected. A total of 287 schools nationwide were selected as 2007 No Child Left Behind -- Blue Ribbon Schools. The award is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. Department of Education and is given to schools that challenge students to perform at high academic levels and make significant progress in closing the achievement gap. Specifically, public and private elementary, middle, and high schoolsselected for the award have had 40 percent or more of their students dramatically improve performance to high levels on state tests.
