Work Hard, Love Kids and Be Positive!

I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the students, staff and community of Hamlin. As we begin anew in 2020, we will strive to live our core values to be student centered, Piper proud and passionately hopeful. 

In an effort to help us live our Mission, Vision and Values, Hamlin ISD is now Hamlin Collegiate ISD, offering Montessori to all 3, 4 and 5 year old children in our District, as well as an associate’s degree to our high school students. Other programmatic changes have taken place as our students are involved in project based learning, AVID, research, health sciences, drone piloting, welding, electrical and HVAC.

Please contact your teacher, campus leadership team or myself if you need additional information about any of our programs. You can also learn more by visiting Hamlin Collegiate ISD on Facebook.

The entire HCISD faculty, staff and I welcome you to a new and exciting school year. We truly believe in our students and our staff and know we can do great things together, with your support and involvement, because truly, WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER!


Randy Burks, Ed. D.
