Lamesa ISD has recently been awarded the 2018 Principal Preparation grant from the Texas Education Agency.
The purpose of the Principal Preparation grant is to provide local rural and/or remote school districts a funding opportunity to build strong campus leaders through principal residencies.
Lamesa will receive $52,000 in grant funds over the next 18 months (2018-2019.) These funds are to be used to aid a selected number of local teachers in pursuing their principal certification and participating in” on-the-job” training of campus administration. In return, these selected teacher-to-principal candidates will commit to staying within the Lamesa school district 3-5 years and obtaining campus principal positions.
Texas has over 1,200 public school districts; however, Lamesa ISD was one of only 26 school districts that received this highly competitive grant award.
