Respectful, responsible, and ready

It's a Lister tradition to be respectful, responsible, and ready. One of the ways we show it is through our common area behaviors.

  • Cafeteria: Line, Dine, and Clean the scene
  • Hallway: Silent Butterflies Walking on the Right

Intersession weeks

The new calendar features Intersession weeks, which consist of special days where students have the opportunity to participate in remediation, acceleration or enrichment activities, similar to summer school offerings in previous years. Students who qualify for remediation will be strongly encouraged to attend, either in-person or virtually, but attendance is optional. Some teachers may choose to work for extra pay during that time. Staff and students who do not work or attend school will have the intersession week off.

Campus improvement plan

A campus improvement plan serves as the blueprint for how a campus will address performance objectives and other campus needs that have been identified from a Campus Needs Assessment.

Title 1

The Campus Parent Involvement Policy explains how our campus supports the important role of parents in the education of their children.  We offer a Parent Compact to establish a partnership among parents, school staff, and students for improving student academic achievement.

District policies

To support our mission of providing an exceptional education to all students, we have created policies designed to help your student have the best possible education experience.
