Dear Lakeland School District Community,

As school districts in our region collectively prepare plans for reentry in some capacity for fall 2020, the Lakeland Central School District is joining with districts within the Putnam Northern Westchester BOCES region to learn what you believe is most important.

We are using the Thoughtexchange tool to capture a broad range of perspectives and to gain a better understanding of what is important to those in our school communities and throughout our region about reentry.  Please help the district by taking part in this exchange, which will close at midnight on Monday, July 13, 2020. Feel free to revisit the Thoughtexchange site often to rate new ideas.   We will share the results of the survey in the future.
To access the Thoughtexchange, click the following link:

After entering the Thoughtexchange, click the participate button to share your thoughts and then rate at least 20-30 of the thoughts shared by others. 
When participating, please keep the following in mind: 

  • This exchange is confidential. Your thoughts will be shared, but not your identity.
  • Please be polite and respectful as you share and rate thoughts.
  • If you see a thought that is rude, hurtful or identifies a person or group, you can report it by clicking in the upper right corner of the thought.

Thank you for participating and sharing your thoughts to help our school communities and our region best plan for a smooth and successful reentry. 
Participating school districts include:
Bedford CSD
Brewster CSD
Carmel CSD
Chappaqua CSD
Croton-Harmon UFSD
Garrison UFSD
Katonah-Lewisboro CSD
Lakeland CSD
Mahopac CSD

North Salem CSD

Thank you for participating.

Last Friday, Governor Cuomo issued an executive order stating that districts may provide Extended School Year services to students with disabilities who are otherwise eligible for them. The governor’s unexpected decision to permit in-person special education services despite closing schools for the current school year created rather involved conditions. We understood we would have to carefully review the situation in terms of many factors before deciding how to best proceed.
