FOR COMMUNITY Richard Jaynes, AIA, VLK Principal VLK Architects was founded in 1984 with the practice focused on the design of exemplary educational projects for Texas public school districts. It is a core business philosophy of VLK that we achieve success as an organization by consistently delivering an exceptionally high level of professional service, to build and maintain long term professional relationships with our clients. One of those clients is the Crowley Independent School District. We have had the privilege of partnering with Crowley ISD for over 30 years in the planning and design of their educational projects. This has been a very rewarding collaboration that has resulted in numerous exceptional projects and successes for the district students and staff. One of the most recent projects that we are designing for the district is the new elementary school, to be located in the Chisholm Trail Development on the west side of the district.
