The Lewis-Palmer School District is situated at the north end of El Paso County, north of the United States Air Force Academy. Serving over 6000 students, the district encompasses Palmer Lake, Monument, Woodmoor and the northern part of the Black Forest area.
In addition to the core curriculum, all district schools offer programs to meet the unique learning needs of students who qualify for Special Education services, Gifted and Talented services, and for those students who speak languages other than English.
Indicators of student learning, as measured by state and national tests, confirm that District 38 ranks among the highest in the state. Our high school graduation rate is over 95%, and approximately 85% continue on to college.
The district provides bus transportation and a hot lunch program, and school-sponsored athletic programs are available for boys and girls at the middle and high school levels.
Please call (719) 488-4700 or explore our website for additional information.
Lewis-Palmer School District along with RTA Architects and Western Demographics hosted a community open house on February 13.
This past spring, Lewis-Palmer School District contracted with RTA Architects to provide long-range facilities planning and consultation services in light of the significant growth in the Tri-Lakes area. RTA recently completed a physical assessment of LPSD buildings and a demographic study. This open house provided the opportunity for the public to hear initial findings and provide feedback.
This is the PowerPoint presentation shared at the open house.
More information regarding the February 13 presentation is available here.

Educator Effectiveness Metrics
On February 6 for the first time, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) will release a limited number of Educator Effectiveness Metrics that reflect teacher and principal ratings from the 2014-2015 school year. The department will report on only four metrics for teachers and four for principals. The publicly reported metrics will only show how teachers and principals are doing as a group at the school, district, and state level. Once published, the release will be available on CDE’s news release webpage, where you can also link to SchoolView to view state-, district-and school- level Educator Effectiveness Metrics data. Please note: the CDE's reporting of LPSD "not rated" data is incorrect. CDE is addressing this issue.
LPSD continues to be rated as Accredited with Distinction by the state of Colorado:
The CDE released PRELIMINARY DRAFTS of District and School Performance Frameworks (DPF and SPF) on Tuesday, October 4. This information may be accessed under the Assessment and Accountability Department page.
7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
