Dear Lakewood Parents and Community Members:
On behalf of the Lakewood School District’s Board of Directors, our faculty, staff, and students, it is my privilege to welcome you to our brand new district website. We hope you like our redesign and enjoy the easier navigation that is now ADA compliant.
We are also working on improving our communication with the Lakewood community by adding more social media push-out venues for our public to access up-to-date information regarding our schools and district. One of these new push-out venues will include offering the Blackboard Mobile Communications App for iPhones and Android phones. The custom, branded mobile app will be available soon for our parents and other community members to download for quick mobile access to district information without having to navigate the website. The district will also be launching our own Facebook account in the fall. This will be an excellent opportunity for us to connect with families and share information rapidly.
Along with our new website and new push-out communication venues we also have a new logo. The district’s logo has been updated, with refreshed colors and a more modern twist that is now compatible with today’s technological needs.
As you navigate the pages of our website you will find a wealth of information about our schools, programs, and more. Lakewood is an outstanding school district with an exceptional faculty, a wonderful student body, and a school community that values high-quality education. We take great pride in our achievements and are passionate about the service and opportunity we provide each and every one of our students.
For the upcoming school year (2018-19) the district will continue our focus on teaching and learning so that our students graduate college and career ready. We have a K-12 districtwide commitment to creating a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) for all students through the lens of literacy and will be partnering with the University of Washington’s Center for Educational Leadership (CEL) to achieve this. We have also expanded our Teaching and Learning Department to aid us in this work. Although we have accomplished a lot so far, we must build on the excellence that already exists within our schools and push for continuous improvement.
Our commitment to you this school year is to become the best we can be at our craft of educating our students, enhancing and improving our culture and climate, and supporting our schools with the necessary resources. Together, we can ensure that all of our students are succeeding in and out of the classroom.
Thank you for your continued support of Lakewood School District.
