Serving on DEIC requires attendance at a monthly one-hour meeting on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 4:00 in the Shoemaker Center auditorium. You may be asked to serve on an additional ad-hoc committee as the need arises.
All curriculum and instructional decisions that impact the students of Lawton Public Schools must come through DEIC. (New courses, instructional materials, academic programs, etc.) It can arguably be called the most important LPS committee.
Applications to serve on DEIC are due no later than September 10. If you are interested, I would encourage you to go ahead and complete the application at this time.
