Bring Your Own Device Begins November 3rd
Dear faculty, parents, and students,
On Monday November 3rd we will begin gradual and careful implementation of our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program at Lackawanna Trail.á I am excited that we have come to the point when students will begin using their mobile devices during classroom instruction. I am confident that BYOD will give our students a competitive, academic edge.
I would like to thank the teachers, parents, students, and community members who have given their input on BYOD. As you know, district policy has been adopted as a result, student handbooks have been modified, and information has been shared throughout the process. We are ready to go!á
Here are a few areas which I want everyone to be aware of before we begin:
  • Students must register their devices with the administration in order to use them in school (registration form will be available next week).
  • Students may only use their devices when teacher/administrator directed, and for academics only.
  • We will begin using devices in the classroom with the basics (looking up information), and expand to more complex lessons as teachers and students become comfortable with this new resource.
  • Our BYOD program will supplement, not replace lessons.
  • We will encounter problems, and we will work together to solve them.
  • BYOD will look different at each grade level, and even within a grade level.
  • I encourage everyone to review the policies related to BYOD, ask questions, share ideas, and help us make this a success for our students.
I can't wait for implementation of our BYOD program on November 3rd!á I hope you share my excitement.áá As we move closer to the BYOD start date, we will continually send messages of this nature to you from various administration and staff at Lackawanna Trail.
Sincerely,
Matt Rakauskas
Superintendentá

Vision Statement
Each building in the Lackawanna Trail School District has a vision statement that embodies what each building believes it must do in order to accomplish the overall mission of the school district itself.  Vision statements were crafted after a review of current literature that stresses such statements should be focused, measurable, and doable.
The vision of the Lackawanna Trail Junior-Senior High School is to provide an educational atmosphere where all students are safe, nurtured both academically AND socially, with access to a wide variety of challenging courses.  During their high school years, students will be able to measure their acquired knowledge by achieving proficiency on standardized, as well as teacher created, assessments because of the education they receive from a highly qualified faculty.  Upon fulfilling all graduation requirements, students will have then mastered the standards-based curriculum--making them fully prepared to enter college, post-secondary vocational school, the armed services, or the work force.  Regardless of their post-secondary choice, students will graduate being technologically literate, being able to access pertinent information, and will be able to effectively collaborate with others--making them productive citizens.
