The Lakeland School District is committed to the complete education of its students by providing the highest quality educational environment and expecting the highest standards of scholarship, conduct, citizenship and character from all members of the school community.
In addition to the intellectual, social, and physical development of our students, we believe that their ethical development is of equal importance and it promotes a safe and nurturing learning community for everyone. Success in achieving these goals requires the commitment of students, parents, staff, and others in the school community.
We believe that people of good character are respectful and compassionate, tolerant, just, and fair. In addition, people of good character are responsible, loyal, trustworthy and honest, and demonstrating integrity in their daily conduct. It is these qualities that are the benchmarks of good character in the Lakeland school community and the foundation for a character education program in the Lakeland schools.
