About Lohn School
Lohn Independent School District is a rural Pre-K through 12 district located in McCulloch County in Central Texas. Lohn ISD prides itself in its academic achievements. Our students consistently out-perform state averages. As a result, the district has been awarded the State of Texas’ highest recognition of “Exemplary” or the State’s second highest recognition of “Recognized” 8 times since the 1995-96 school year—6 “Exemplary”; 2 “Recognized.” During the 2000-2001 school year, Lohn ISD was one of 5 Texas school districts nationally recognized for its Title I program.
Lohn students are privileged to have a campus that has some of the latest technology available to public school students across the Lone Star State. Lohn ISD and 7 other area schools aided by Central Texas Telephone Cooperative formed the INFONET distance-learning network in 1994. Since its inception INFONET has offered college credit classes and “dual-credit” classes through Central Texas College. Lohn School seniors typically produce a video of their activities that is shown during graduation ceremonies.
Transfer Students Wanted
A student who resides in another district or state and desires admission to Lohn ISD must file an application for transfer with the Superintendent. Current state law allows requests for student inter-district transfers to be considered at any time during the school year. All applicants for transfer regardless of the date of the request will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
The Board authorizes the Superintendent to accept or reject any transfer request in determining whether a student who resides in another school district will be permitted to enroll in Lohn School. The Superintendent will consider the following factors:
*The grade level of the student seeking admission and the effect of additional students at that grade on class size, staffing and facilities.
*The disciplinary record of the student seeking admission.
*The attendance record of the student seeking admission.
*The academic record of the student seeking admission.
