Lackland ISD Calls on Congress to Support Our Schools


District Leaders Advocate for Impact Aid

Representatives from Lackland ISD recently went to Washington, D.C. to call congress’ attention to the needs of area schools at the National Association of Federally Impacted Schools (NAFIS) Spring Conference.

Board Secretary Dr. Laura Munro, Trustee Chris Dietert, and Superintendent Dr. Burnie Roper joined school district leaders from across the United States to discuss and advocate for Impact Aid, an essential program that provides critical funding to federally impacted school districts like Lackland ISD. Impact Aid reimburses these school districts for the loss of revenue caused by the presence of nontaxable federal property such as Lackland AFB. It helps ensure students who attend schools on or near such property have access to a quality education.

As part of the conference, Dr. Munro, Mr. Dietert, and Dr. Roper met with staff for Senator John Cornyn, Congressman Henry Cuellar, Congressman Joaquin Castro, Congressman Lloyd Doggett, Congressman Will Hurd, and Congressman Chip Roy to request that Congress increase funding for Impact Aid for Fiscal Year 2020 and dedicate significant funds to address infrastructure needs of federally impacted school districts. They explained the crucial role of Impact Aid in Lackland ISD and shared achievements and needs of schools and students.

“Without Impact Aid, we wouldn’t be able to effectively serve our students,” said Dr. Burnie Roper, Superintendent of Lackland ISD. “Impact Aid funds are used for teacher and staff salaries, student transportation, and technology purchases just to name a few. This funding is critical to providing our students the opportunities they need to maximize their potential, so it is important for us to travel to Washington and advocate directly to Congress for it.”

During the three-day conference, school district representatives received updates on Impact Aid from the U.S. Department of Education. In addition, they heard from national experts on a number of important education issues, including teacher retention, school safety, and career technical education.

“Every student who attends Lackland ISD benefits from Impact Aid” continued Dr. Burnie Roper. “It is a program that our school district will continue to fight for”.

Month of the Military Child

By: Kerrigan Gafford


     April is the designated month to recognize the resilience, resoluteness, and relentlessness of “military brats.” Unfortunately, there are numerous amounts of struggle that military children must learn to cope with. These struggles include deployments, separation and frequent moves. “Purple up” is a term used to spread awareness of the month through a single color. We encourage this color to represent the strength and resiliency of military children. Every military child has a unique set of circumstances, however difficult, we can overcome them. That is the power behind the Month of the Military Child.

     In honor of this special month, S2S and JS2S are taking action in recognizing these students. As a parent, you can send your child a message. This is for students at the junior high and high school. These messages can be filled out via the link below. This includes their names, grade, and related information. These messages will be transferred to purple cut-out hearts and given to your children. The link below will need to be filled out by April 9th, messages will be handed to your students on April 12th.


This project is monumental in supporting our military students and school. You can be a part of this important month, and recognize your child’s resilience! Make sure to show your support for Month of the Military Child and send your child a note! (By April 9th)

Lackland ISD was asked to participate in “Go Public with David”, a weekly segment on Channel 4 at 6:30 PM for all of 2019.


Here is the link to the video segment that aired on WOAI News.



Congratulations Lackland ISD!
