The search for Lakota’s next superintendent continues to move forward. The Board of Education contracted with national education recruiting firm Finding Leaders to lead the process.

After reviewing feedback the district received over the past year, and all three sources mirroring one another, Finding Leaders has moved forward to begin the search.

Walking into Julie Egbers’ STEAM classroom, you could hear sixth graders playing over a dozen keyboard renditions of London Bridge and Mary Had a Little Lamb.

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 5% of all entities that are audited annually earn the "Auditor of State Award with Distinction" - and Lakota has received the honor 10 years in a row. 

1:1 Technology:

Through Lakota's WE are Empowered initiative, all students in grades K-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.
