Lakewood has — and continues to be — committed to being strong stewards of taxpayer dollars and ensuring financial transparency to our community. We work to ensure that the use of our resources is in alignment with our district priorities and ensuring high levels of learning and growth for all students.

Beginning in the 2023-24 school year, Lakewood School District will provide all school supplies for students except for a backpack.
