Dear Students & Families of Lakeland Central School District:

The 2019-2020 Program of Studies provides important information concerning all of our course offerings at both Lakeland and Walter Panas high schools.  We strongly encourage selecting courses that are meaningful to your personal goals and interests.

Students will begin scheduling for the 2019-20 school year at the beginning of the 2nd Semester.  We begin the scheduling season with an evening scheduling assembly for families, followed by grade level assemblies and elective fair.  Students will then meet with their school counselor to  discuss his/her progress and selecting courses for the following year.  

The Lakeland CSD School Counseling | Guidance Department staff will work in partnership with students, families, staff and all community stakeholders to prepare students to achieve success in school and live successful and rewarding lives.  All students must believe they belong in our academic community, they can succeed, their ability and competence grow with effort, and the work they do in school has value to them as we prepare all our students for their unique post-secondary journey, to be college & career ready, and to successfully manage their lives as responsible and productive citizens.  We are deeply committed to your child’s success and transition to a meaningful post-secondary choice.

Frank Accetta
District Director of Guidance and Counseling
