Meet Superintendent Van Zyl

July 27, 2022

Lakeville Area Schools families and community, 

It is my pleasure to welcome you back for the 2022-23 school year. I am excited to be serving as your new superintendent as we begin a year full of new opportunities, new relationships and a new strategic plan. I look forward to working in a community that strives for excellence in everything it does, whether through academics, activities or athletics.  

As the new school year draws closer, I am eager to meet Lakeville Area Schools students, families and community members. I know that our students’ success is highly dependent on the support of our families and community members. To best serve our students, it is important for me to hear from you about the goals and challenges of our community. 

To get to know each other better I would like to invite you to join me for a Coffee and Conversations event. Event details are as follows:

    • Date: August 23, 2022
    • Time: 5:30-6:30 p.m. 
  • Location: Lakeville Area Schools District Office (17630 Juniper Path, Suite A, Lakeville, MN 55044)

If you have any questions about Coffee and Conversations please contact Kim Elsen at

Enjoy the rest of your summer! 

Dr. Doug Van Zyl
