Lamar CISD New Campuses Will Accommodate Growth
The future of education in Fulshear is an important consideration to the community. Lamar CISD will be opening 18 new schools over the next ten years to accommodate growth in the area, according to a recent article by Community Impact.
LCISD Superintendent Roosevelt Nivens has seen large amounts of growth in the Fulshear area, attributing it to commercial and retail developments coming to the area.
“If you drive down Texas Heritage Parkway [and] if you look to the right and left, all you see is [that] they're moving dirt and getting ready for rooftops. Once that happens, then of course they’ll develop the commercial, so both are going to be here rapidly,” Nivens said.
District officials also expect to see growth in the types of career paths and classes that are being offered to its students, something Nivens sees as a standout among other districts.
“The vision is that when children leave us, they have choices and opportunities. If you're in high school and you want to earn an associate's degree, we have a pathway for that. If you want to be a chef, we have a pathway for that,” Nivens said. “Our whole goal is to help students do life.”
