Dual Language Enrichment Program

In 2013, Lily B. Clayton was fortunate to become one of 2 elementary schools in Fort Worth to be designated a 2-way Dual Language Enrichment School. The program started in Kindergarten of 2013 and will continue up through all grade levels with that Kindergarten class. All incoming Kindergarten students may apply to be in the program. There are 2 Dual Language classes per Kindergarten grade out of the 4 Kindergarten classes. Therefore, it's a lottery system to get in.

Site-Based Decision Making (SBDM)

The site-based decision making team is an integral part of school-based management in the FWISD. This team is comprised of 7 to 11 members, including the principal, assistant principal, three teachers, three parent citizens and up to 4 other members that can be added as determined by the team.

As leader of the management team, the principal schedules regular meetings to discuss academics, programming, organizing, implementing and evaluating for excellence in all facets of the school's operations. The principal and management team are responsible for reviewing the school-based programs, budget, and the quality of all activities in the school. They are also accountable to the Superintendent and the Board of Education. Meetings are open, but only management team members have a vote.
