Starting in August before the first day of school and also through many hours of after-school practices, the LHS Band worked on the performance that would help them excel at UIL Marching Competition. This past Saturday the band, under the direction of Mr. Smith, competed at Port Neches Groves High School and received straight ones! LHS was one of only two 3A marching bands to accomplish this feat. Being that this is not a State Year for 3A UIL Marching Competition, the LHS Band is done with competitive events for the year but the Panther Band will be sure to come back next year even stronger, continuing the tradition of excellence.
This is the eleventh year of Schools FIRST (Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas), a financial accountability system for Texas school districts developed by the Texas Education Agency in response to Senate Bill 875 of the 76th Texas Legislature in 1999. The primary goal of Schools FIRST is to achieve quality performance in the management of school districts’ financial resources, a goal made more significant due to the complexity of accounting associated with the Texas school finance system. Since its inception, accountability measures have increased and currently there are 20 indicators monitored for compliance. Click on the Headline above to see entire story.
