It’s a great day to be a Lipan Indian!!! We are so excited that you are visiting our website. The Lipan Independent School District (Established in 1871) has a rich history of academic and extra-curricular success. Lipan students have been very successful in passing state exams, but we define success as more than just passing a test. Our focus is on developing the whole child to produce successful and productive citizens. We continuously strive to create multiple avenues for children to be successful and we enjoy celebrating each and every success.
Our school year has started off well and we anticipate great things from our staff and students this year despite the problems we are facing with the COVID-19 virus. We have protocols in place to keep both our staff and students safe. Our plan is designed to ensure a safe and normal environment while maintaining instructional continuity and keeping in-person learning available throughout the school year. Our COVID-19 Task Force is in constant contact with Hood county health officials, The Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to stay current on health trends in this ever-changing pandemic. We appreciate the way the staff, students, and the community have responded to our efforts.
Lipan ISD has outstanding, second to none, staff members who strive to build relationships with children and their families to produce a well-rounded experience for students. We encourage our students to be involved in as many activities as possible, in order to create a positive, whole school experience.
We strive to develop students who are academically and socially prepared to attend college, join the military or begin career paths upon graduation. Whether your children are in early elementary and desire small class sizes, caring teachers and outstanding instruction, or whether they are in high school looking to be challenged academically, while at the same time creating lifelong memories as successful members of the Lipan Band, Athletics, AG, Student Council, FBLA, BETA Club, Student Council, or any other programs or activities that we offer, the Lipan Independent School District is a great choice for your family.
If you have any questions specific to your child’s campus, you may contact Mr. Tony Phillips, our district’s Athletic Director and Dean of Students, and he would be more than happy to serve you. Mrs. Jennifer Phillips is our Pre-K through 6th grade principal and Mrs. Jodi Overton is our 7th-12th grade principal and they too will be happy to help you in any way they can.
I look forward to meeting you soon and working hand in hand with you to help make each and every Lipan child successful. Please do not hesitate to contact me, my door is always open! Thank you for considering the Lipan Independent School District and have a wonderful day.
Ralph Carter, Ed.D
