Elementary LISD App Store
Lewisville ISD remains committed to providing digital access for learning. After many discussions with LISD parents, teachers, administrators and Technology Department, the district is set to launch an LISD App Store for elementary students during the first semester of the 2015-2016 school year. In addition, LISD has developed new iPad guidelines for secondary students.
By introducing the elementary LISD App Store, the district is able to focus educational opportunities for students by streamlining all apps that are downloaded to district-issued elementary student iPads through one portal.
- Only the LISD App Store will be available on the elementary student iPad.
- Only approved, specific apps can be installed on student iPads to prevent any unwanted apps (all apps reviewed for instructional value and appropriateness).
- Any student/parent purchased apps will no longer be available on LISD elementary iPads.
For a current list of apps in the Elementary LISD App Store, please see link

- I received my Master's Degree from the University of North Texas in Library and Information Sciences.
- I have a love for children and learning which keeps me motivated to continue teaching and working with students. My favorite lessons involve technology.
- In my free time I like to read, write, run, and paint.
- My favorite hobby is traveling, and I've been to 20 countries so far!
This is my 7th year as a librarian.
