    TEA Safety Audits

    • The Texas Education Agency has notified us that the Texas School Safety Center will once again be conducting safety audits in our district this fall. There are no specific dates and we don't expect the exact dates to be announced.

    • The audit is primarily two parts: 

      • Intruder Audits: The auditor will be dressed in civilian clothes.  He or she will be unarmed and will not be confrontational.  Their objective is to see if they can get into the school without checking in at the front office.

      • Exterior Door Checks: After the Intruder Audit is complete, the auditor will check the functionality of all exterior doors on our campuses.

    Video Board Partner Recognition

    • Since 2013, our video display board has enhanced the stadium experience by showcasing the success of our students, staff and programs during events at Cavalier Stadium.

    • Not only has the video display board resulted in revenue-generating partnerships between LTISD and the business community that benefit student programs across the school district, perhaps more importantly, this initiative has had a direct and lasting impact on our students.

    • During the Lake Travis/Westlake pre-game festivities last Friday, we proudly recognized the following partners for their investment in our video display board, and ultimately, for their support of our student programs:

      • Anchor: NXTLVL Marine Austin, Prosperity Bank Lakeway, and Watkins Insurance Group

      • Founding: Amber Hart Homes, Hill Country Oral Surgery, Lakeway AC & Heating, Lexus of Lakeway, and ROI Athlete

      • Premier: Covert Bee Cave, Hat Creek Burger Company Lakeway,  and M Robinson Fine Jewelers
