From the Chair

brad-lancasterAs Chair of the Fast Growth School Coalition and Superintendent of Lake Travis Independent School District I welcome you to the Fast Growth School Coalition website. The indentified 85 fast growth schools across the great State of Texas represent approximately 80% of student enrollment growth which means we have specific needs related to building new facilities, hiring new staff and managing increased academic resource costs.

The purpose of the FGSC is to bring together superintendents from similar districts to establish a shared agenda and to provide a voice for specific issues related to growth. FGSC works extensively with legislators from around the state to encourage sound policy as it relates to public education.

If you are a prospective member district or interested in being a “Friend of FGSC” I would like to encourage you to join our team and provide your voice and insight. If you are a prospective corporate partner, please know that not only do we value your financial support of our organization, but we value your voice and insight as well in helping us develop a shared agenda. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or our Executive Director, Michelle Smith. Once again welcome and thanks for your support and interest.
