District Education Center

Lufkin ISD’s District Education Center is dedicated to the success of all students and is committed to excellence in teaching and learning by providing programs that are designed to challenge and support all learners.

In addition to core curricular areas — language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, digital learning and fine arts — the District Education Center provides opportunities for those students with disabilities, dyslexia, Gifted and Talented students, ESL/bilingual students, and alternative programs for credit recovery.

Our group works to ensure that both design and delivery of the written, taught and tested curriculum is in alignment throughout the district. Through professional development, we strive to empower teachers to use a variety of effective instructional strategies to actively engage students in activities that promote conceptual understanding.

The District Education Center designs curriculum, assessments, instructional programs and professional development plans that are aligned with research based instructional best practices and works to provide a rigorous curriculum designed to ensure innovative, customized learning opportunities for all students.
