From the Superintendent
Thank you for visiting Lakeport Unified School District’s website.
Our district is unique in its composition, housing both comprehensive and alternative school sites and programs. The three comprehensive sites include Lakeport Elementary School (TK-3), Terrace Middle School (4-8), and Clear Lake High School (9-12). Meanwhile, Lakeport Alternative Education Center offers three separate programs: Lakeport Community Day School (6-10), Natural High Continuation School (10-12) and Lakeport Alternative School (K-12 homeschool). All of the district’s schools and programs are nestled together on one large, sprawling campus which allows for a collaborative, close-knit climate for students and staff, alike.
We are a district that prides itself on engaging, challenging and nurturing our students. The Administrative Team is proud of its work to recruit and retain fantastic teachers who are knowledgeable, dedicated and compassionate. All staff are committed to providing high-quality academic, athletic and extracurricular programs and opportunities. Our schools strive to provide our students with regular access to numerous forms of technology to prepare them for our constantly changing world. In addition, we focus to ensure our course offerings are numerous and ever-growing for a small district.
Our commitment to academic excellence is made possible by our amazing staff and a strong partnership with the exceptional community of Lakeport. Every year, we collaborate with numerous parent groups, service organizations and businesses to create new and exciting learning opportunities for our students. The Lakeport Enhanced Education Foundation has been financially supportive of LUSD for over twenty years, combined with our Parent Teacher Organizations, Booster Club, and Clear Lake High School Sports Foundation. Other local community groups we have been fortunate to work with over the years include the Kiwanis Club, the Early Lake Lions Club, and the Lakeport Rotary Club. I encourage you to visit our schools and be involved in your child’s education in any way you can. Our partnership is an essential component in preparing your child for the world that awaits them upon graduation from high school.
I have worked in the Lakeport Unified School District for almost my entire thirty-year career. In various capacities, I have been fortunate to have worked at each of the school sites. As such, I wholeheartedly believe in this district and its future. My role as Superintendent is to support staff, students, and the community. Please contact me and share with me your ideas about how the district might better serve you or your student: firstname.lastname@example.org or (707) 262-3000.
