Lubbock ISD is opening the school year with 49 schools, which is a reduction of 10 campuses since 2009.
Several campuses are new or renovated to better serve students.
Parkway and Bozeman Elementary Schools have consolidated into Alderson Elementary.
Iles and Wheatley Elementary Schools have consolidated into Joan Y. Ervin Elementary.
Murfee and Haynes Elementary Schools have consolidated into Jayne Ann Miller Elementary.
These consolidates are allowing the Lubbock Independent School District to use resources more efficiently and effectively.
Nancy Sharp, LISD Communications Director, said there are some changes to take note of.
All high school students will stay on campus for lunch, with many new choices in the cafeteria which is designed more like a student union on a college campus.
All elementary schools will keep all doors locked once the day has begun.
Students arriving late or visitors to the school will need to press the buzzer on the front door to gain access to the building.
