Dear Lobo Families,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  I am ecstatic to join LOBONation and serve our amazing community as Principal of Lehman High School. My team and I have already began the process of hearing the voices of stakeholders as we partner with you to develop a 360 degree comprehensive plan to further meet the needs of our students. You too will have the opportunity to voice your concerns with me at our Meet the Principal meetings (more info coming soon). 

In the meantime, we anticipate a great school year as students engage in new learning opportunities through blended learning in Algebra, a new welding facility and the addition of AP Human Geography for freshman students to name a few. Additionally, we will be meeting with all grade levels to discuss post-secondary options and college and career readiness. We invite you to contact our counseling center for more information.

As stated before, earlier this year, many of you participated in the district’s annual family and community satisfaction survey. For Lehman High School, a total of 148 individuals participated.  The percentage of families who said the school is excellent or good increased by 14 percentage points from the year before.

While the survey results were very positive, there were certain areas where our campus can improve. Ninety-two percent of parents would like more information regarding the academic progress of their student.  Eighty-eight percent would like more information about college and career readiness.  This demonstrates the desire of our families to work in collaboration with the school to support our Lobos in current and future endeavors. 

Additionally, less than fifty percent of our families feel they receive timely and helpful feedback on their child’s schoolwork from their child’s teacher(s).  Less than fifty percent feel they receive useful information about how to help their child do well in school from their child’s teacher.  We know we can do better.

This year, in response to your feedback, these are the actions we are taking to improve in these areas:

  • ·      Teachers will provide feedback regarding student progress via email.
  • ·      Teachers will create teacher websites where they will maintain up to date information related to their class and assignments.

At Lehman High School we we are committed to our students' success and we are grateful for your partnership in making that happen. As we move through this school year and all of those yet to come, we look forward to seeing your face and hearing your voice and we continue to grow and protect the Lobo brand!

Sincerely,

Denisha Jackson-Presley, Principal
