Safety and Security in Our Schools
While we believe our schools are very safe for our students, we know we can continue to make improvements. District administrators are meeting with principals in each of our 11 schools to review plans and to listen to concerns. As a result of those meetings, we will most likely need to reallocate some resources to shore up any areas of concern. A few weeks ago a meeting was held with Bonner County Sheriff's Department along with Sandpoint City Police. During the meeting we discussed ways to make our schools safer both in the short term and the long term. Read more....
Dear Community Members,
It is with gratitude that I write this letter of appreciation on behalf of the Lake Pend Oreille School District. As you know, we just recently passed out Supplemental Levy Election with 58 percent of our voters supporting the levy. We are thankful and appreciative of the fact that this community consistently supports quality education for our students, even in challenging economic times. We will do what it takes to continue to inspire confidence in our stakeholders by careful reflection of practice and the impact of our practice on student learning.

New Accountability System Approved for Idaho Schools - The U.S. Department of Education announced recently it has approved Idaho’s new accountability system.
Under this new system, Idaho is able to move away from certain provisions of No Child Left Behind and create a new system of increased accountability that is based on multiple measures of student achievement, including academic growth. This new system will replace the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) provision with the Five Star Rating System.
This means elementary and middle schools will be evaluated on achievement, growth to achievement and growth to achievement – at risk subgroups including minorities, students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged students and English as Second Language (ESL) students. Schools that include grade 12 will be evaluated on the same areas but will also include a post secondary category. The post secondary area includes graduation; advanced opportunity which includes Dual Credit, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Professional Technical courses; and college entrance/placement exams.
