The Lansing Public School District is the urban public school district that covers an expansive 52 square miles, including the city of Lansing, Michigan, part of the city of East Lansing, and parts of the municipalities of Delta, DeWitt, Lansing and Watertown. Last day of school for students, a graduate of Lansing, Ivey Card has started her first semester at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). The district offers summer meals and provides seven days of breakfast and lunch in bulk every week. Delivery is available for those who reside in the school district and pickup is available for those who do not.
Meals will begin on Wednesday, July 7th and will continue throughout the month. The district's mission is to inspire their students to become informed, responsible, healthy and compassionate citizens. Their vision is to create an educational environment in which their students, teachers and community members can thrive in an atmosphere that encourages independent thinking, mastery and individual success. In addition to pursuing high academic achievement for all, they strive to adopt and improve each child's unique abilities, helping to forge the connection between education and opportunities.
In March 1861, the number of districts was increased to four and the districts were consolidated into a single all-inclusive school district within the city limits, as required by the city's new charter. Between 1847 and 1851, three separate school districts were created within the three neighborhoods of the then small city. The district also offers a wide range of specialized schools including Chinese immersion courses, Leadership, Law and Government, International Baccalaureate, Visual and Performing Arts and Montessori. It has schools specializing in Chinese immersion, international baccalaureate, STEM, STEAM and other categories.
The Lansing School District covers more than 52 square miles, making it the fifth-largest school district in Michigan.
