Superintendent’s Message

Welcome to the website of the Rosebud-Lott ISD Cougars!  RLISD came into existence in the early 1970’s when the two smaller districts of Rosebud and Lott consolidated to pool their resources to provide a better educational learning environment and experience for the students of these two communities.  Today, 40+ years later, Rosebud-Lott ISD has accomplished far more than anyone could have anticipated at that time.  First, numerous other small communities have joined the family.  In addition to Rosebud and Lott, the district is now made up of students from the communities of Westphalia, Travis, Cedar Springs, Pleasant Grove, Burlington, Ben Arnold, Wilson, Durango, Tomlinson Hill, Wilderville, Baileyville, Powers Chapel and Marlin.   Just as is our American heritage, we are a melting pot of personalities and cultures that we have blended together to make something great: We are Rosebud-Lott ISD Cougars!


I am proud to be a part of this fantastic family and I am excited to invite you to become a part of the Cougar phenomenon as well.  If you will jump in beside us, I can promise that you will never be bored!  To her credit, our district has many years of accolades in a variety of fine arts, academics, and sporting competitions.  These include many academic UIL District Championships at all levels, Elementary through High School.  There have also been 18-years of consecutive of 1st Division ratings in the UIL Band Marching Competition and several Sweepstake Trophies in that area as well.  The Cougars have earned numerous State Championships in the area of UIL Accounting through the years.  Our boys took home the UIL Division 2A Football Championship in 2002.  In 2014, our boys took home the UIL State Championship in Track.  Not to be outdone, our girls took home the UIL State Championship in Track in 2015.  We have an outstanding Agricultural Department that is highly competitive in Animal Science and Mechanical Science.  In addition to having new robotics courses at the Middle School and High School, we have new robotics teams that have begun competing around the state.  We are currently in the process of bringing back our RLISD Tennis Team.  They have begun practicing afterschool and are planning to engage in a few scratch meets this semester before beginning district play in the 2020-2021 school year.  As you can see, the Cougars are a proud bunch who are excited to try new things and always push themselves for excellence in every field of endeavor. 


      None of us are perfect but we are always going to give our best in everything we do.                                                         Together, we are “Proud to be a Cougar”!
