District Administrator's Welcome


Welcome to School District of Lodi

“Bright Futures Start Here”

On behalf of the staff, administration, and the Board of Education I want to welcome you to the School District of Lodi where our mission is to create a bright future for each and every one of our students.

The Lodi staff, administration, and Board of Education are committed to providing a great education that is coordinated with the individual learning needs and learning styles of our students. To achieve that goal, the Board of Education is committed to maintaining smaller 4K-3rd grade class sizes and multiple instructional options across all district grade levels. These multiple instructional options include multi-age classrooms, project based learning, creative and problem-solving based science-technology-engineering-art-math labs (STEAM), accelerated mathematics, and multiple Advanced Placement classes, just to name a few. All of our curriculum is standards based with a focus on skill development, problem-solving, and individual student discovery.

Our staff and our students are committed to excellence as evidenced in the yearly academic success of our students and the continuing success of our music, art, FFA, forensics, mock trial, and our district sponsored co-curricular sports programs.

Our staff strives each and every day to help each student learn fundamental and problem-solving skills and grow their own talents and leadership potential.

Bright Futures Start Here – Welcome to the School District of Lodi.
