Mission and Beliefs
Together with our families and community, Lakeville Area Schools provides educational opportunities to ensure academic, social, civic, and personal readiness for every student.
To provide a safe, respectful, engaging, rigorous, and collaborative learning environment for all students, families and staff where every person belongs, is valued, and can succeed.
During the 2021-22 school year, Lakeville Area Schools launched a comprehensive strategic planning process. The overall process and strategic plan was created with input from Lakeville Area Schools students, staff, families and community members focused on future system-wide improvements to improve outcomes for students.
Based on the work of the District's new strategic plan, the following core values were established.
- Students First: Student needs drive our decisions and actions.
- Excellence: High expectations for all with everything we do.
- Collaboration: Working together for common goals.
- Integrity: Being honest and authentic in every interaction.
- Responsible: Individually and collectively we are good stewards of our resources.
