    School starts on Aug. 24! I hope everyone had a chance to recharge and is ready to jump into the new school year. Before we begin the school year, parents and guardians are reminded to help prepare their students for the start of school. I look forward to the successful start of the school year, and I appreciate your partnership to ensure that we have a tremendous year in LCPS!

    A Message from the Acting Superintendent, June 22, 2023

    Looking back on the 2022/23 school, we are grateful for the support of families and our dedicated staff. Over the next several months we will prepare for the coming school, including the construction of new schools and the availability of new programs. One of the key transitions we will prepare for is the arrival of Dr. Aaron Spence, who was named as LCPS’ next superintendent and whose tenure will begin on September 1.

    A Message from the Acting Superintendent, June 1, 2023

    May is an amazing month, as our students have the opportunity to demonstrate their growth and achievement, and it's also a time full of events, recognitions and celebrations. This May we celebrated the rededication of the Historic Douglass High School Education and Development Campus. It was humbling to be in the presence of such history. We also prepare to celebrate our graduating seniors and recognize the achievements of our students.

  •  Acting Superintendent Message

    A Message to Staff from the Acting Superintendent, April 26, 2023

    I want you to know that taking care of our exemplary staff, especially when it comes to compensation increases, is and will continue to be prioritized in the Adopted FY24 Budget. Due to uncertainty at the state level, the School board has taken action to implement a two-phased approach to providing these pay increases.
