From the Superintendent of Schools

Frances M. McArthur, Ph.D. Lexington ISD

February is Career and Technology Month. Career and technical education (CTE) prepares both youth and adults for a wide range of careers and further educational opportunities. Within CTE, occupations and career specialties are grouped into Career Clusters. Each of the 16 clusters is based on a set of common knowledge and skills that prepare learners for a full range of opportunities. Research indicates that participation in a CTE sequence of classes minimizes the risk of students dropping out of high school because students find relevance in their learning. One career pathway in our CTE Department in Lexington Schools is our Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources Pathway. I am so proud of our FFA and 4-H students who showed animals at the Fort Worth stock Show and Rodeo earlier this month. Our students were rewarded for their many hours of hard work and dedication with a great learning experience as they showed their animals.

On top of that, our students garnered over $50,000.00 in scholarships just last week Congratulations to our students, Mr. and Mrs.Lilley, Mrs. French, and each and every one of our parents who have supported our students and our program.
