As you explore career options, we understand you have many choices in which team you wish to join. In addition to understanding the available opportunities, it is incredibly important to understand the culture of the organization you are looking to join. For this reason, we offer you this peek at what makes Lockhart Independent School District an incredible place to teach, learn, and grow!

In Lockhart ISD, we engaged all of our staff to help develop the expectations of what leadership in our school district should be. We believe every one of our staff has unique gifts and  limitless potential, and we hold high expectations of ourselves and each other in the relentless pursuit of equitable and excellent results. The definition below is the framework within which we hold ourselves and each other accountable, whether leading in district administration, campus administration, classrooms, fields, courts, cafeterias, buses, or anywhere else within LISD. We are #LockhartLeading. 

Lockhart ISD Leadership Definition

Lock”heart” for People

The most valuable resource we have in our school district is our people. In order to be effective in our mission, we work to build relational capacity through frequent and transparent communication, authentic relationships, and strong, positive culture.  Beyond the titles we each hold, we are first people. We know we perform best when we take care of ourselves and each other.  In Lockhart ISD, we  demonstrate caring for each other and celebrate our students and staff. 

Lockhart ISD Employees and the Big Surprise
When Lockhart ISD employees returned from Christmas break this past school year, they assembled at the Gerry Ohlendorf Performing Arts Center for the mid-year Roar Rally. They had no idea what was in store for them--a big surprise! 

Lockhart ISD 2019-2020 Employee of the Year Awards
While COVID-19 prevented the school district from holding its annual employee awards banquet, it did not prevent the school district from celebrating the amazing people who exemplify excellence in the service of students and staff! See the road trip celebration across Caldwell, Hays, Comal, and Travis Counties to surprise our honorees!

Senior Honk Line - Class of 2020
Senior year experiences changed dramatically due to COVID-19, but the community of Lockhart, known for its small-time charm and big heart, showed up --safely exercising social distance --to honor our seniors as they drove through the town's beloved and historic town square.

Unlocking Potential

In Lockhart ISD, we understand that every one of our staff and students possesses unique gifts and infinite potential. We believe it is our responsibility to continuously learn and grow in our personal leadership and development so we can bring our best selves to our shared mission. Also, we believe it is our responsibility to cultivate talent, help others to grow, and share leadership with others so that we--individually and collectively--can realize our fullest potential.

Locked on Excellence

Our students and staff are in a relentless pursuit of equitable and excellent results. For this reason, we value strategic planning aligned with our targets to grow every student by 1.5 years each year in reading and math. As an organization in continuous growth, we value those who can be effective change agents to affect meaningful and necessary change to help us evolve with our students’ changing needs. Finally, we understand excellence cannot be achieved without holding high expectations -- for ourselves, each other, and especially our students. 

Lion Link - The First Installation

When LISD realized 40 percent of students did not have access to any internet service this spring, the district mobilized quickly to address the barrier by building seven internet towers to provide free wireless internet to all students across the school district. It was the only way to address inequity in access and ensure all of our Lions could grow to their full potential.

The Education Foundation for Lockhart ISD directly supports our teachers in pursuit of innovative and excellent results through its innovative grant program. Listen to the ways in which the Education Foundation has supported our teachers to take instruction and learning to higher levels!
