  • History

The beginnings of the Lackland ISD are closely connected to those of Lackland Air Force Base. The "base" was established on June 26, 1942, after the War Department separated part of Kelly Field and named it the San Antonio Aviation Cadet Center (SAACC). In 1947, Lackland Air Force Base was created and was named for Brigadier General Frank D. Lackland, former Kelly Field Commander.

Wanting to provide on-site education for the children of the military personnel, Lackland AFB officials petitioned the Health, Education, and Welfare Department in 1951 for school building funds. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) was also petitioned in order to establish an accredited school district. In 1953, TEA and the office of the Bexar County Judge approved the establishment of the Lackland ISD.   

The Lackland ISD opened its doors to students in grades 1-6 on September 8, 1953.
