Superintendent’s Message

September 2014


Parents, teachers, District staff, and students our first week of school has come to a close and I am pleased to announce that our enrollment has increased since last year.  After several years of declining enrollment and having to adjust our staffing numbers to align with our decrease in enrollment, we are now seeing an increase in some of our classroom sizes across the district.  We will do our best to support the classroom teachers and serve the students in our largest classrooms the best we can with the resources that are available.


Projecting student enrollment numbers and building a school budget is based on year to year growth or decline in enrollment.  Since 2008, our yearly enrollment numbers have declined and Lakeland Jt. S.D. has made the necessary adjustments by reducing staff.  At the beginning of every year and throughout the year, we track enrollment and class size knowing full well that we will face unexpected challenges and opportunities as the year progresses. We will do our best to address critical issues transparently, involving community members in the difficult decisions that must be made about our classrooms, schools, students, and District.  We will also maintain our track record of inclusion and collaboration with our parents and community members in this effort. 


It is a relief to our district to have the challenge of dealing with the current enrollment increase rather than a decrease.  At the time of this writing our elementary student population is up 32 students from the same time last year and our secondary student population is up 48 students in that same time period. One of our biggest challenges that we will begin working on this fall for next school year will be the realignment of elementary school boundaries.  In order for us to provide the very best educational opportunity for all our students, while maintaining smaller neighborhood schools and smaller class sizes, we must have an equal distribution of students throughout our elementary schools.  In doing so, we will create and maintain classroom and school environments that are conducive to high levels of learning.


A Community Committed to Academic Excellence and Dedicated to Student Success is not just a slogan, but it is our practice and our promise to you! We acknowledge and celebrate that all staff, all entities, and all community members raise students and student achievement.  In so doing, we prepare each student to be successful, and our students develop a strong sense of community.


On behalf of our District, please accept my thanks for your support of our schools and our students and, on a personal level, for the opportunity to lead and work with you as your superintendent.
