About Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD
Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD is deeply saddened by the recent school tragedy in Florida and extends our heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families, friends, school system, and all of those impacted by this great loss.
With our students and staff making another transition, we want to reassure our parents, guardians and constituents that Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD has proactive measures in place regarding student and staff safety.
Our District follows guidelines from the Texas School Safety Center in determining safety procedures and protocols. The District and campuses have emergency plans which are revised as campus needs dictate. The plans include safety meetings, audits, a variety of drills and assigned roles for staff during an emergency. Additionally, LCMCISD has provided the international Dan Korem training on crisis prevention and intervention to help staff recognize random actor characteristics and personality traits that may require intervention.
LCMCISD values parent and community partnerships and encourages parents to have open communication with their children and to share concerns with campus personnel. We also ask parents to help their students understand that even joking about committing an act of school violence is inappropriate and could lead to both school and/or legal consequences.
Due to both bond construction and hurricane recovery, we recognize the safety challenges posed by the unusual current conditions of our facilities. Even with these extenuating circumstances, we will continue to make student and staff safety a high priority.
The mission of the Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD is to graduate young adults with the knowledge and skills necessary for success in an ever-changing technological society by guaranteeing each student an individualized and well-rounded education.
The District and all six campuses have earned “Met Standard” in the State accountability ratings. LCM students have distinguished themselves in all arenas - academic, athletic, fine arts and vocational.
All LCM campuses have earned Microsoft Innovative School status. At the high school level, being named a Microsoft Innovative School and IT Academy has enabled students to participate in coursework that will allow them to earn certifications as Office Specialists through Microsoft.
LCM CISD has a strong fiscal history with financial transparency, as evidenced by the top ratings on the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) for as long as it has been in existence and also the Gold and Platinum Circle Awards from the Texas State Comptroller. The Comptroller award is given to entities exhibiting best practices of financial transparency. Click this link for the financial transparency portion of our website.
