District Mission

The mission of the School District of Lodi, a strong partnership of families, community and educators, is to inspire students to become lifelong learners who seek new understanding and skill to assume the role of responsible and contributing members of society by creating a world-class, innovative learning environment that stimulates academic and personal excellence.

District goals 2018-2020

1. STEAM: From the fall of 2018 to the Spring of 2020, the School District of Lodi will integrate STEAM learning opportunities into all grades K-12, including specific STEAM classes at the middle school and high school levels. Determine how to measure growth in the STEAM area by 2020.

2. Literacy: From the Fall of 2018 to the Spring of 2020, the School District of Lodi will implement a benchmark writing assessment for grades 2-11. During the 2018-2019 school year, the assessment will be in the "pilot" phase, so rubrics and prompts will be developed across grades, with full implementation during the 2019-2020 school year.

3. Literacy: The School District of Lodi will improve writing scores in grades 3-6 to at least 60% proficiency on the Forward Exam by the Spring of 2020.

4. Family Support: The School District of Lodi will increase social and emotional student and family support in order to maintain or decrease the percentage of students in grades 6-12 that report feeling sad and hopeless almost everyday for two weeks.

5. ACT: The Board of Education, administration and staff will continue to focus on academic achievement in order to improve district ACT scores to a level that remains above the state average and is within the top 2 districts in our conference, top 2 in CESA 5, as well as the top 3 districts in our geographic area.
