On January 31, 2014, the State Board of Education approved House Bill 5 adopting new rules regarding Texas high school curriculum and graduation requirements. In response to these new requirements, Lorena High School will hold mandatory eighth grade parent and student meetings on April 21 and April 24.  Both meetings will be held in the Lorena High School Commons at 6 PM. All current eighth grade parents and students are highly encouraged to attend one of these meetings. Information concerning House Bill 5 curriculum and graduation requirements will be presented, and parents will have an opportunity to ask questions. This information will allow parents and students to make informed decisions regarding freshmen requirements and electives.

At the end of each meeting, parents and students will be asked to complete a 2014-2015 Freshmen Choice Sheet and to select an endorsement. Information regarding endorsements will be presented, and advisers will be available to assist with this process. Choice sheets must be signed and turned in before students can register for their freshmen classes. For more information prior to the meetings, students and parents may reference LHS House Bill 5 graduation requirements and possible endorsements which are located on the Lorena High School website.

You can click here to find all the Info for Incoming Freshmen on the High School's Guidance and Counseling page. Please make plans to attend one of the two important meetings on either April 21 or April 24. For more information, call the high school office at 254-857-4604.

In May 2013, the Lorena citizens voted to pass a $22.9 million bond for renovations and additions to all four LISD campuses.  Once the requirements for selling bonds were met, the bonds generated $22.06 million. At the time of sale the bond market rates had changed, resulting in an $840,000 shortfall. This shortage was taken proportionally from each of the campus projects.  For more information, see the details provided here.

In Lorena ISD our primary focus is our students. These facility decisions, like every other decision we make, are made with students’ success and well-being in mind. Working within the financial parameters, we want to provide facilities that enrich the students’ academic as well as co-curricular and extracurricular experiences.

The projects are in various stages of planning and/or completion. For a full update on the status of each project, please click here.
