District Guidance
Lakeland Central School District

Dear Students, Families, Staff, and Community Members of the Lakeland CSD,

Welcome to the District Guidance page.  Our goal is to provide a comprehensive site that serves as a resource for your family as you navigate the middle and high school years.  Though high school and post-secondary planning are important aspects of our daily responsibilities, it is important to note the unique responsibilities school counselors and guidance staff have as advocates for all our students.  Many of our greatest successes will never be known as we provide critical support and guidance in their social and emotional journey - making a difference, one student at a time.
Thank you for visiting our web page and we look forward to working with all our families during these exciting and memorable years.
