Lake Local has developed curriculum based upon the Ohio’s Learning Standards. Our teachers regularly participate in professional learning communities and are heavily involved in staff development opportunities focusing on standards based-education, data analysis, assessment, instruction, technology integration, and project-based learning. Our district vision is "to be the leader in addressing the educational, social, and physical needs of our students and staff." Staff from each building has developed action plans consistent with our district goals and objectives.
Lake identifies every opportunity to embed technology across the curriculum, exposing students with the 21st century tools they will need when they enter the workforce. Our curriculum maps are formatted electronically to enable teachers to constantly update lesson plans, resources and assessments during collaborative planning. Teachers regularly use wall mounted monitors, interactive displays, and laptops to share information with students. We have implemented one to one computing for grades 2-12. Our staff works collegially and is very involved in teaming at all grade levels and content areas. Teachers have common planning which allows us to effectively collaborate and team together. We are pleased with our 2018 School Report Card. Our district finished 1st in Stark County for the 3rd straight year with our performance index.
