Enhancing educational opportunity:
As an educator himself, a consistent theme of Lisle's work on the Board has been to help provide the financial and other support needed to help assure educational opportunity for Newton schoolchildren. Here are some of the many ways he has helped.
Newton schoolchildren deserve appropriate educational facilities. As President of the Board, he helped facilitate the votes on the various bond authorizations needed to fund an enhanced Newton South High School, including new athletic fields and tennis courts, as well as a new Newton North High School.

Dear Alderman Baker,
Your help on Newton Serves Day was way above the call of duty and we totally appreciate the effort you made. Without your support (food, extra recruits and relentless hard work) we would probably not have achieved even half of what we got done.
Our school grounds look absolutely beautiful and we will be enjoying the view for months to come. Thank you so much!!
I have attached some photos from yesterday for you to remember us by!
