Lamar CISD was one of the very few school districts in the state of Texas that met Federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under the No Child Left Behind law.
Only 27.6 percent of Texas school districts met this requirement. That breaks down to 339 Texas public school districts meeting the standard, with 876 districts not achieving AYP.
“We can’t attribute this accomplishment to just one thing,” said Lamar CISD superintendent, Dr. Thomas Randle. “Every child is a priority at Lamar CISD and when you focus on one student at a time, you’ll see results like these.
Meeting AYP is a credit to our teachers, administrators, staff, parents and the students themselves. ”
