Welcome to Lakeland Schools

Women's History Month


In honor of Women's History Month, the Lakeland Central School District recognizes and honors all the women across our district who make a difference in the lives of our students each and every day. We are truly grateful for all you do!

This month, we would like to highlight some of the women who are leading our district. Please join us in celebrating the Women of Lakeland!

Throughout history, women have played crucial roles in shaping the world we live in. Yet, their stories have often gone untold. This month, we embark on a journey to highlight the voices and remarkable achievements of women - but not just any women - the women who are leading the way right here in the Lakeland Central School District.

From defying societal norms to breaking glass ceilings, from leading revolutions to pioneering scientific discoveries, women have consistently pushed boundaries and made significant contributions in every field imaginable. The same is true of the women right here in our district. 

This month we explore the contributions of the women leading our school district and making a real difference in the lives of our students each and every day. This month, we are excited to celebrate the extraordinary individuals who help pave the way for a more just and equitable world. 

Many women have gone before us, contributing to the advancement of every discipline. Here is a wonderful resource about Women in STEAM.
