Teacher qualification information

Parents may request and the District will provide information regarding the professional qualifications of their student’s teachers and paraprofessionals.

Volunteers make an impact

Once a week, artist Dave Christiansen volunteers at Everett Elementary to work with students interested in learning about drawing and painting.
Today, Dave surprised his students with handmade easels donated to the school by craftsman Terry Stolle.
Thank you Dave and Terry for sharing your time and talents with our “budding artists” at Everett school. We appreciate you!

Climate Survey

Dear families,
Each year the Assessment Department at Lincoln Public Schools conducts ‘climate surveys’ to measure parent satisfaction. The survey comes in an email from LPS-ESU18@qualtrics-surveys.com, and each school’s email will look different. You may receive multiple emails but you only need to take the survey once. The deadline for completion is March 17. Thank you for helping us better serve our families.

Queridas familias,
Cada año, el Departamento de Evaluación de las Escuelas Públicas de Lincoln realiza ‘encuestas climáticas’ para medir la satisfacción de los padres. La encuesta viene en un correo electrónico de LPS-ESU18@qualtrics-surveys.com, y el correo electrónico de cada escuela se verá diferente. Es posible que reciba varios correos electrónicos, pero usted sólo tiene que tomar la encuesta una vez. La fecha límite para completar esta encuesta es el 17 de marzo. Gracias por ayudarnos a servir mejor a nuestras familias.

Уважаемые родители,

Каждый год Отдел Аттестации и Тестирования общественных школ города проводит «оценку общественного мнения» с целью ознакомления с мнением родителей. Анкета будет выслана вам по электронной почте. Она придёт с адреса LPS-ESU18@qualtrics-surveys.com, причём сообщения приходящие из различных школ будут выглядеть по-разному. Вы можете получить несколько сообщений, но вам нужно принять участие в опросе лишь один раз. Просим вас заполнить анкету до 17 марта. Благодарим Вас за уч� �стие в процессе улучшения обслуживания семей общественных школ.

Digital Citizenship

LPS hosting six ‘Digital Citizenship’ events this fall

Lincoln Public Schools will host six community events this fall centered around safety in technology and social media. LPS has partnered with Ryan Sothan from the Consumer Protection Division of the State Attorney General’s office, a state leader in best practices for the use of technology for families and students.

Each presentation is the same, and all are free and open to all ages. Attend the presentation that fits your family’s schedule best:
● Mickle Middle School – Sept. 22, 6:30 p.m.
● Culler Middle School – Sept. 27, 6 p.m.
● Scott Middle School – Oct. 3, 6:30 p.m.
● Pound Middle School – Oct. 24, 7 p.m.
● Park Middle School Nov. 14, 7 p.m.
● Schoo Middle School, Nov. 17, 6:45 p.m.

About Sothan’s presentation: Think of “Digital Citizenship: Rules of the Road for Safely Navigating the Information Superhighway” as Driver’s Ed, a primer designed to raise awareness and prepare families and students to drive and interface with today’s information technology—including social media and smartphones—in a safe, responsible, and respectful manner.

About Sothan: As Outreach Coordinator within the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office, Ryan has statewide responsibility for developing and implementing community-based initiatives for educating Nebraskans in the areas of consumer fraud, predatory and illegal business practices, and Internet safety.

After each presentation, LPS will have staff available for parents to ask questions regarding technology in schools, including Chromebooks – a device being rolled out to LPS students over the next two years.
