OUR VISION
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.
 
OUR MISSION
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.

Welcome

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 the following changes to the 2014/15 school calendar:

- April 27 and May 4 were originally scheduled as scoring and professional development days.  Both days will now be regular school days and students, faculty and staff are required to report to school.

 

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!

 

Sincerely, 

 

Anne G. Spadone
Superintendent
