Students demonstrating college readiness through a college placement exam can earn college and high school credits in the same course by attending classes at their high school, on a Lone Star campus, and/or online. We partner with independent school districts, charter schools, private schools, and homeschool parents to offer courses in the core curriculum, foreign languages, and workforce education.

Manager, School Partnerships









Jane Buckner
VECHS Advisor

Janeís work in public education began as a school health nurse, though she was quickly drawn into the education field. As a teacher, curriculum specialist in health and school administrator, she had multiple opportunities to work closely with students and families. Janeís position as adjunct instructor at UH for 13 years enabled her to work with preservice teachers to create opportunities that promoted classroom wellness and the impact that has on academic achievement.

In 2007, Jane joined LSC-Tomball as an academic advisor, and later as Manager of the schoolís first TRIO Student Support program. Jane and her staff created a strong model program to ensure student success. TRIOís work with first generation students proved that with access to services and meaningful connections, academic success could be achieved. Jane considers herself to be a success partner with each student that she encounters.

Jane earned degrees from Northern Illinois University, University of Houston and Prairie View University. She enjoys reading, cycling and spending time with her family. While she has several volunteer interests, her top priority is projects that promote dignity among individuals and families that are striving to become stronger.
