April 28th Capital Facilities Bond
We're pleased to announce that after 6 months of research by a variety of community members on our Facility Committee, feedback from the community, and consideration from the School Board of Directors, voters in the Lynden School District can expect to see a ballot measure in April, 2015 that addresses urgent needs in the Lynden Middle School and Fisher Elementary School buildings. The $48,000,000 capital facility bond request will address problems of outdated facilities and enhance our children's learning environment and security.

Strategic Plan
During the 2013-2014 school year 16 focused group sessions were facilitated with students, staff, and community involvement. The information gathered was reviewed by Focus Group participants, School District Administration and School Board Members, it then became a final plan approved by the school board. Our Strategic Plan identifies our focus of work for the next three years. It is the guiding document that provides the road map for our focus, energy, efforts, and resources. Thank you to everyone who participated in this important exercise for our schools and district. Please read the documents revealing the areas of focus.
 
 
 
Get Involved
Our schools have many opportunities to become involved in your students education. We take immense pride in our educators and to partner with our community is a priority to ensure that our students are given the tools and relationships to be college, career, and citizenship ready. Please check with your school or the district office about how you can make a difference.
