Officials 'bridging the gap' at national conference

BOSTON — Longview Independent School District's mission of providing an excellent education for all students was part of a presentation delivered Monday morning at the National School Boards Association's Conference for Public Education Leaders in Boston.

Officials cited such key components as the district's Head Start/Early Childhood programs, the Montessori education model for Pre-K and Kindergarten students, as well as 1st through 12th grade International Baccalaureate programs, Capturing a Kid's Heart relationship-building strategies, early college high school, and career/technical education.

Clements said LISD received a lot of interest from other education professionals about its innovative approach in a variety of areas.

"It is amazing to see how forwarding-thinking our district is," he said. "We get so many districts across the country interested in the things we are accomplishing at LISD. We are truly one of the innovators in our field."
