Dear Students & Families of Lakeland Central School District:

We present to you the High School Program of Studies of the Lakeland School District. This publication contains the information you will need to create the best possible academic program for the 2019-2020 school year and beyond.

Our school district program provides students with a complete array of course offerings. As you choose your courses for the 2019-2020 school year, please carefully consider graduation requirements, promotion policies, instructional level guidelines and course descriptions.

Please take note that the high school program of studies provides information for Lakeland and Walter Panas high schools and for courses for self-contained special education students as recommended by the Committee on Special Education. Courses offered only at Lakeland will appear with the letter “L”, and those courses offered only at Walter Panas will be designated with a “P”.   Please note that some courses may be offered in alternate years. Please consult your school counselor for more information.

Please be aware that this publication is not designed to answer all questions about a student’s schedule. It is our expectation that you will pursue all avenues available in planning your high school schedule and program. Our school counselors are ready to assist you in this process. They welcome any questions and concerns you may have about requirements, changes, and sequences affecting your high school plan of study and final course selections.

In closing, we ask that you read this information carefully and vigorously utilize the services offered by our school district. School counselors, teachers, subject area chairpersons, and administrators are willing to discuss the many educational opportunities available at our high schools.

We wish you a successful, challenging, and rewarding academic year and career at Lakeland High School and Walter Panas High School.
