The Lewisville ISD (LISD) Board of Trustees appointed Dr. Kevin Rogers as Superintendent of Schools for the state’s 15th largest school district on May 18, 2015. With more than 33 years of experience in education, Rogers has a proven track record of introducing new opportunities for all students and teachers, as well as leveraging them to close the achievement gap.
Since assuming the role of LISD Superintendent, he has worked to be transparent with staff, parents and the community, as well as continue to give all a voice in the decision-making processes of the district. Under his leadership, the district launched its Four Cornerstones - Student Learning, Student Experience, Community Engagement and Resource Stewardship. These guiding principles underscore LISD commitment to real innovation and limitless opportunity for each of our students, and capture Rogers’s core values as a leader.
Rogers believes the district benefits from utilizing voices from across the district, both internal and external, to develop the district’s vision and direction. LISD has developed numerous community, staff and student advisory groups to provide the district feedback from various stakeholder groups to guide important district decisions. The work of the Community Bond Committee helped lay the foundation for LISD’s largest-ever voter-approved bond referendum in 2017, which included funds for security upgrades across the district, renovations to current campuses, new facilities, and technology infrastructure and devices.
In 2010, UNT named Rogers the UNT Outstanding Ed.D. Doctoral Student in Educational Administration. Additional awards include being named the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA)’s State Administrator of the Year in 2007, as well as being named a Texas PTA Lifetime Member in 1998. Rogers also had the opportunity to present his dissertation to the Clark Law School at Brigham Young University.
Rogers began his education career in 1986 as an LISD science teacher at Milliken Middle School (now Delay Middle School) and moved through the ranks as Assistant Principal at Marcus High School, and then Principal at Arbor Creek Middle School prior to becoming the Marcus High School Principal, where he served for 15 years. He then served the district in Central Office positions, where he was the district’s Chief Operations Officer before being named LISD’s Interim Superintendent.
With a passion for serving children and young adults, Rogers has invested countless hours in shaping the future of others through his role as a mentor to LISD students. In addition, Rogers has served as an adjunct professor for UNT, along with volunteering his time with numerous non-profit organizations.
Born in Wichita Falls, Texas, Rogers was raised in Andrews, Texas and graduated from Fort Stockton High School. He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas (UNT), master’s degree from Texas Woman’s University and doctorate degree from UNT.
Dr. Rogers is a proud husband, father, and grandfather, and is grateful for the opportunity to serve as superintendent of Lewisville ISD.
