Denton County's Largest Employer Invites Community INSIDE
Have you ever wondered what it takes to run a multi-million dollar organization, with more than 6,000 full-time employees serving more than 53,000 stakeholders?
We aren’t talking about Exxon, AT&T, American Airlines, or any other of the countless Fortune 500 companies calling the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex home. In fact, the largest employer in Denton County isn’t a company at all. It is Lewisville Independent School District (LISD), and the district wants to invite community members INSIDE (Interested Neighbors Staying Informed of District Efforts) to learn what makes the district tick.
“Most people remember attending school and can probably tell you about their favorite teacher or best subject,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kevin Rogers said. “But not many community members have the opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge of what it takes to run a successful school district like LISD.
“Most importantly, the leadership program is an opportunity for all residents in our 13 municipalities to meet one another and foster a neighborhood connection,” Rogers said. “Creating and strengthening relationships is a unique benefit of this program.”
Participants get to know the district’s leadership team and learn more about the inner-workings of LISD through this in-depth program. The three goals of INSIDE LISD include:
• Fostering a single community philosophy
• Serving as a conduit to the 13 municipalities served by LISD
• Engaging the community in an open dialogue format where members can receive an in-depth perspective through campus tours, presentations and discussions of how LISD operates.
Each session is scheduled from 9-11 a.m. and addresses a different area of the district’s operations.
