ALLEN (CBSDFW.COM) – Lovejoy ISD in Collin County is one of the top ranked school districts in North Texas. According to the Texas Education Agency’s accountability index, LISD has very high TAKS scores and a 0% drop-out rate. The only issue the district is having, according to Superintendent Ted Moore, is money.
“We lost about three million dollars in state funding back in the 2011 Legislative Session,” says Moore. “We make cuts and did belt tightening to get us through the following two school years, in hopes that we would have our funding restored in the legislative session that just ended.”
