Superintendent’s Message

Dec. 2015/Jan. 2016


Lakeland Jt. School District Goal #1 is to keep our students safe and focused on high levels of learning.  With safety in mind, our district administrative team has ongoing safety assessment discussions and we have implemented a number of recommended measures. 


  • All of our elementary schools have security controlled access doors to limit unauthorized access during the school day. 
  • The district has an upgraded video phone system in all of our schools and classrooms.
  • Classrooms are clearly numbered to the outside to assist and coordinate any type of emergency response that might be needed. 
  • Building staff member teams have engaged in safety training with local law enforcement agencies covering a variety of possible scenarios. 
  • All of our schools routinely practice emergency procedure drills. 
  • Our secondary schools have upgraded video cameras within the school hallways. 
  • The City of Spirit Lake has a Student Resource Officer (SRO) who is available to all Spirit Lake Schools.
  • Our district is thankful for the close working relationship we have with Rathdrum Police Department, Spirit Lake Police Department, and Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department.


As we prepare ourselves for the next few months of inclement weather, we will do our best to keep schools open and operational as we have done in the past.  We will pay close attention to winter weather conditions to determine whether school will be in session. Our process for any type of snow closure includes our transportation director and me driving our district roads as early as 4:00 a.m., we communicate with the highway districts, local law enforcement agencies, and our own district snow plowing crew to determine if our buses can safely travel the roads and if school parking lots can be cleared.  News of any closure will be communicated through local news stations, district email/text announcement system and on our district webpage. 


Town Hall Meeting

The purpose of these meetings is to provide our public stakeholders an opportunity to engage in dialogue with our school and district administration and trustees.  The district will briefly provide current information about the Lakeland Jt. School District, discuss public education at the local and state level, and highlight some of the dynamic programs taking place in our schools and answer questions.


Town Hall meetings – start time is 6:30 p.m.:


Thursday, February 18-John Brown Elementary

Thursday, March 3-Betty Kiefer Elementary


As a result of the Town Hall meetings we will work to address critical issues transparently, involving community members in our 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.


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.


We look forward to meeting you at one of our Town Hall meetings!
