    LEF

    Through the generosity of our donors, the LEF has funded more than 70 academic projects, 40 hardware and software projects, and a wide variety of outreach, cultural and aesthetic programs, many open to the entire community. In 2016, we successfully completed our largest infrastructure project to date by investing $600,000 to transform all of our libraries into 21st Century Learning Centers. We are now poised to again reach higher: we’re reaching out for contributors to help us support the implementation of STEM throughout all grades levels at Lakeshore Public Schools.

  • JULY 2021 - BOARD OF EDUCATION STATEMENT ON RETURN TO LEARNING PLANS

    Throughout the course of the 2020-2021 school year, the Lakeshore Board of Education and the LPS Administrative Team have been managing the plans for learning.  Lakeshore is proud to have provided in-person instruction at the highest rate in the state.  Each month, the Board has approved the district’s learning plan.  This work has been fluid given the changing government mandates and conditions of the pandemic. 

    At this time, we anticipate Superintendent Eding to present a draft Return to Learn Plan to the Board of Education sometime in the next few weeks and to publish a plan by the first of August.  A key feature of the draft Return to Learn Plan will be “flexible mitigation,” meaning that as transmission rates increase, additional mitigation measures may be implemented.  As transmission rates decline, so too would mitigation strategies.

    Transmission rates in the county and within the Lakeshore community are currently low. If they remain low, then we have confidence the upcoming school year will look and feel very much like a normal school year. Below are some specific details of our draft plan that would be implemented if transmission rates remain low. 

    • Schools will open and operate on a full, daily schedule with in-person instruction.
    • Staff, students, volunteers, and visitors will NOT be required to wear face masks, regardless of one’s vaccination status. Face coverings will be optional. While no longer mandated, local and state public health officials recommend that unvaccinated individuals continue to wear a mask in indoor public settings. As a public school district, we must comply with local, state, and federal laws to ensure continued financial support. We also anticipate that the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and/or the Berrien County Health Department will issue a face covering order if high levels of community transmission return, with which we would comply as a public school district.
    • Students and staff will NOT be tested for COVID, unless mandated by the MHSAA, MDHHS, or BCHD. COVID vaccination is NOT required for school enrollment or attendance. The district encourages staff and students to become vaccinated, yet the district is NOT requiring staff or students to be vaccinated.
    • While public health officials expect positive cases of COVID to be far more infrequent, people who do test positive will need to stay home until symptom free and any students or staff who are not vaccinated and are designated a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case will have to quarantine for 10 days.
    • Finally, we look forward to students engaging in athletic, enrichment, and extracurricular activities before and after the school day.

    These expectations are based upon COVID cases remaining at low levels. Public health officials expect case levels to remain low due to the protective effects of vaccinations and antibodies derived from prior exposure. If transmission rates increase, then increased mitigation measures will be implemented in line with mandates by local, state, or federal agencies and in as inclusive and non-discriminatory manner as possible.

    As one of the public school districts in Berrien County, we will continue to partner with our neighbors. There are synergies to our collaboration and, thus, we will continue to align our actions where and when appropriate. That said, we serve the students and parents of Lakeshore Public Schools and any actions we take will be those that most effectively support the safety and well-being of our students while complying with the rules, laws, or emergency orders established by local, state, or federal agencies.

  • JULY, 2021 - BOARD OF EDUCATION STATEMENT ON SAFE, INCLUSIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS, DEI PLANS, AND CRT

    There exists in our nation and community considerable discussion around the teaching of Critical Race Theory in K-12 Public Schools. Critical Race Theory is not included in the curriculum of Lakeshore Public Schools. Our curriculum follows the state of Michigan K-12 education standards and Critical Race Theory is not part of those state required curriculum standards.

    Our teachers are charged with teaching students to think objectively about a breadth of topics and to analyze and evaluate information from multiple perspectives. To support students’ application of analytical and evaluative thinking, teachers present information in a developmentally appropriate and neutral manner.

    The Board of Education and our Lakeshore staff recognize that diversity among our students, staff, families, and community members exists and is integral to the District's mission to prepare students to successfully meet the challenges of the future.  The recently passed resolution to create a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion action plan has unfortunately been portrayed as a vehicle for teaching Critical Race Theory.  This is not accurate.  The goal for the DEI action plan is to support the academic, physical, social, and emotional needs of ALL Lakeshore students and in no way aims to divide, blame, or advantage one group over another, as alluded to in some conversations around Critical Race Theory.

    The Board is proud of this student-centered goal of sustaining a tradition of educational excellence within a safe, stimulating learning environment that recognizes and accepts the value of diversity.
