News & events

Ever wonder how to easily find school lunch menus or even the specific Lakota events, news and people most important to you? Well, there’s an app for that! 

Results of the fall 2023 district communications survey uncovered a need for more promotion surrounding the benefits of Lakota’s downloadable mobile app. In response, Lakota launched a social media campaign in January and February to highlight the convenient and customizable features wrapped into the district’s app.

A two-part series kicks off with a session that explores the range of educational options available to Lakota's secondary special education students and their families. "Transition Planning," scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 22 from 6-7 p.m., will provide an introduction to opportunities like Lakota's unique work study program as well as post-secondary options like Project Life and Project Search.


Everything WE do is designed to provide a future-ready, student-centered learning experience for every single child.

Points of



Culturally Diverse:

With 42% of students celebrating their multicultural backgrounds, Lakota provides a culturally-diverse experience where respect and inclusion are taught as core values.

Fiscally Responsible:

Fewer than 4% of all entities that are audited annually earn the "Auditor of State Award with Distinction" - and Lakota has received the honor nine years in a row. 

1:1 Technology:

Through Lakota's WE are Empowered initiative, 100 percent of all students in grades 3-12 have access to their own Chromebook for daily learning.

Dogs of Lakota:

Lakota's pack of ten therapy dogs, and growing, are wagging their tails around the district, providing therapy and emotional support to even our youngest learners. 

The 4Es:

We believe in preparing every student for success after graduation in one of the 4Es: Enrollment in higher education; Enlistment in military service; Employment as a contributing member of our community; or Entrepreneurship.
