Technology Department Receives Award
Extreme Networks recognized the Lewis-Palmer School District Technology Department with their Exemplary Schools Award as "A Visionary 21st Learning Environment" - Recognized for Enabling Personalized Education through the Use of Technology. Extreme Networks recognizes two school districts in the country each year.
During the award presentation, Extreme Network representatives stated that this award is about "recognition for driving student success through the use of technology as opposed to just having technology." When asked what set LPSD apart from other school districts, the reply was, "It is the vision you have for your students." They said, LPSD "has not only put the infrastructure in place but put the right infrastructure in place - infrastructure which is expandable and can handle the rigors put on by various environments and various teachers."
Congratulations, Technology Department. You take really good care of our students and staff.

Previous Community Open House Information
Lewis-Palmer School District, RTA Architects, and Western Demographics hosted community open houses on February 13 and March 14 in order to provide opportunities for the community to hear demographic growth data about the Tri-Lakes area and its impact on Lewis-Palmer School District.
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. These open houses provided the opportunity for the public to hear these initial findings and provide feedback.
