Lancaster School District, established in 1885, is dedicated to providing a high quality education to the more than15,000 preschool through grade eight students that we serve. As District Superintendent since 2012, I am privileged to be part of an amazing team of professionals – Teachers, Administrators, Support Staff, and our Board of Trustees.   Now, more than ever before, you will find that we are fully committed to ensuring Options and Excellence in Education for Every Student, Every Day”!   

We are excited to return to full day in-person instruction for all students in August 2021.  In preparation for the new school year, we have been working hard to ensure the following:

  • Safety first! Please review our Safe Schools Reopening Plan.
  • Full day in-person instruction Monday through Friday at all schools.
  • Breakfast and lunch served at all schools Monday through Friday.
  • Independent study programs for families that wish to continue using a virtual learning platform.
  • Additional small group and individual support for student success.
  • Engaging expanded learning options and activities – in-person and virtual.
  • Technology for every student – at home and in school.

We know how vitally important it is that we work collaboratively (staff, parents, and community) to prepare our students for success in High School, College, and careers. Our educational program design, The AAA+ Learning System, is a systematic approach to provide students, and their families, the resources, tools, instruction, guidance, and individualized support needed to accelerate and enrich learning.  In addition to providing intervention and remediation to mitigate learning loss, we will offer a variety of extended learning opportunities that provide students enrichment and exciting project-based learning experiences at school and at home.

Thank you for visiting our webpage and for your interest in learning more about Lancaster School District.  I welcome and greatly value parent and community involvement and encourage you to get involved at your child’s school and stay connected. Take time to participate in our periodic community surveys and forums as this information is extremely valuable to us as we strive to continually improve programs, supports, and services that promote student success. I also would like to invite you to “like us” on Facebook where it’s easy to stay up to date on what’s happening in our district and see some of the wonderful things happening in our schools.

Together we can, and will, make GREAT things happen for children!  They’re counting on us.
