All parents have the right to request information about the qualifications of their child's teacher(s). Please contact Jon Abrams, Superintendent, at 245-4050 for more information.
Every child in LCSD#2 will have equal access to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE), including public preschool education.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act of 1987, reauthorized in December 2001 as Title X, Part C of the No Child Left Behind Act, and most recently re-authorized in December 2015 by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), defines the term "homeless children and youth" as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
- Children and youth who are:
- Sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason (sometimes referred to as “Doubled-up”;
- living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations;
- living in emergency or transitional shelters; or abandoned in hospitals;
- Children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings;
- Children and youths who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and
- Migratory children who qualify as homeless because they are living in circumstances described above.

School Attendance Area
The Board of Trustees believes that children learn best when they are in an environment which is comfortable for them. We believe their designated attendance area affords that comfort level for them. All students are urged to attend that school in the area in which they reside. Those children who desire to attend schools within the district outside their residential areas may do so. For more information please refer to section JC of the Policies and Procedures Handbook for more information.
