Superintendent's Message




Dear Lakewood Families:

At Lakewood City Schools our Vision of a Lakewood Graduate and our Vision of a Lakewood Educator are our north stars. Everything we do inside and outside the classroom is focused on developing the six core competencies of our vision - critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration, growth mindset, global citizenship/awareness and empathy - in our students beginning in preschool. 

We now add our three-year strategic plan to our roadmap in decision-making. The plan arose from a months-long process that began in early 2022. In partnership with The Impact Group, we gathered input from approximately 1,600 stakeholders including Board members, families, students, business leaders, nonprofit leaders and the greater Lakewood community. 

Through the process of listening to our stakeholders, themes emerged that helped us focus our plan on seven goals and objectives:

  1. Academic Achievement and Technology
  2. Climate, Culture and Wellness

  3. Communications

  4. Human Resources and Business Operations

  5. Curriculum & Professional Development

  6. Extracurriculars - Athletics, Arts and more

  7. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

We believe these goals reflect the core values of our district and provide actionable objectives that will inform all our decisions moving forward.

We are grateful for our community's interest and dedication to our district. Together, with our Vision of a Lakewood Graduate and our new strategic plan, we will continue to build on the excellent legacy of the Lakewood City Schools.
