Kilgore Independent School District believes that all parents, teachers, and community leaders partner in the educational success of all students. We promote the involvement of these key stakeholders by having them take part in the process that allows them to ignite life-long learning in all students. KISD has established a family engagement plan to increase the collaboration between all stakeholders. The active participation of parents, teachers, business and Community leaders in all aspects of our students' education prepares today’s students for tomorrow’s opportunities.
