Our Vision is to educate and support all of our students in meeting or exceeding the New York State Learning Standards necessary to graduate from the Lackawanna City School District and to become contributing members of the community.
All Faculty and Staff of the Lackawanna City School District will implement and continually refine a well-defined standards-based curriculum which is culturally responsive to the needs of all students in order to develop their academic knowledge and skills, educational and career pursuits, lifelong learning and social responsibility.


Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Community Members:

Welcome to the second half of the 2014-2015 school year.


Due to school cancellations during the November snow storm, there was some concern that we may need to make up days.  The Board of Education has approved changes to the 2014/15 school calendar.  Click here to view the revised calendar.


At this time, the District does not need to make further adjustments to the 2014-15 school calendar. In the event that additional emergency closures are needed, we may need to consider rescheduling student attendance days and will communicate calendar adjustments to you immediately.


On behalf of the Board of Education, Administrators, Faculty and Staff, we look forward to a successful and productive finish to the school year and to warmer days ahead!
