    Principal's Message

    Dear Lakewood Students, Staff and Parents,

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  I am very excited to serve all of you in my fifth year as your Principal and I am happy to welcome a new Vice-Principal, Dr. Tomika Romant, an experienced high school administrator, who will be working alongside me to lead our school this year.  We are lucky to have her joining our administrative team to replace the Co-Principal position, which was restructured at all LBUSD comprehensive high schools last year. In addition, we are fortunate to have Miruna Lascar and Chris Thompson joining Jonathan Hayes to create a new, yet experienced, team of Assistant Principals this year.  Another exciting change is the structure of our administrators as Pathway Principals with each of us serving as an autonomous leader for each of our Pathway communities. Together, we would all like to welcome you to the new year and thank you for the opportunity to serve as your school administrative leadership team!

    Last school year was another successful year for our school in many areas and we once again received a Silver Medal designation for being one of the “best high schools” in the nation by US News and World Report! As great as the last school year was for Lakewood, the 2019-2020 school year provides the opportunity for us to embrace the Lakewood philosophy to “better our best” and make this year surpass last year’s achievements. To do this, your continued help, leadership, teamwork, and support will be needed to keep our outstanding high school moving forward to better reach our shared vision of success for all.

    Looking back at our previous school years we have much to celebrate and be thankful for! Our staff, students and parents helped our school to earn a six-year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). This was a six-year effort by our school community and we are so proud to have earned this distinction for our school this past year! 

    Our staff continued to engage in the review and revision of our instructional programs with the implementation of single-subject integration and systematic student support systems as part of a long term goal to receive Linked Learning Certification in all Pathways. This goal to restructure around the Linked Learning framework will lead to all students performing at the higher levels in the classroom, while better meeting the demands of the 21st Century high school graduate, who must be college and career ready to succeed. Last year, our Pathways were acknowledged by our WASC Visiting Committee as an area of strength thus providing a solid foundation of success to build on to provide even better student outcomes in the future.

    So far, the growth of our Pathways has definitely paid off as we have had over a 12% growth over the past three years in the percentage of students meeting the state criteria for college and career ready, a new state measure for student success.  Lakewood can also be proud of last year’s graduation rates above 92% which exceeds state averages by nearly 10%! We will take this data and celebrate our students’ success and continue to look for areas to increase student achievement in the classroom. 

    The 2018-2019 school year was also very successful for both athletics and activities. Some of the highlights of last year’s athletes include a Varsity Moore League Champions in Boys Volleyball and Softball and over 15 of our athletic teams qualified for the CIF Academic Team Awards for having a team GPA of 3.0 or higher – our athletes are truly student-athletes. Our LHS Dance won 19 awards along with a Division Championship, and two Grand Championships. Our Lakewood ASB did an outstanding job of starting the year with tons of school spirit and continued to encourage our Lancer Nation Pride by planning events, dances, rallies, and campus fairs. I also am proud to say that our Lakewood students, parents, and staff were very involved in our local community with participation in a fall Blood Drive, Project Sheppard Food Drive, and many other local charitable and community events.  We can all be proud of how our Lancer Pride shows in athletics, activities and the community!

    In the 2019-2020 school year, we eagerly look forward to building upon our successes in academics, athletics and our efforts to be a positive influence in the community. During this school year, we will be focusing on our WASC Action Plan, continue to review data and to refine our programs to ensure success for all of our students. In addition, we can all look forward to the completion of the Measure E classroom HVAC project this year and enjoying the benefits of the newly air-conditioned classroom space along with updated audio-visual systems.

    Thank you to all of our staff, students, and parents who supported our outstanding achievements last year. I am looking forward to another amazing school year in service to the Lakewood High School community.

    Class Change Policy

    Change of Program and Class Change Policy 2019-2020

    At the time of course selection and again at pre-registration in August, students are provided counseling regarding the choice of elective subjects. Therefore, all students are given ample opportunity to make changes to their program during the spring and summer before school starts. Student requested program changes cannot be made during the school year; however some changes will be made for administrative purposes, i.e. class balancing, scheduling error, staffing changes, etc.

    Unless and until such a permit is issued, the original program must be followed, and any absence occurring without a permit will be considered a truancy and treated accordingly.

    Students and their parents are counseled on the benefits of remaining in a course for the duration of the course. The student’s continued participation in the course may increase his/her opportunity for success when the course is retaken and taking challenging classes will result in better preparation for college and career. In addition, required courses must be repeated and thus the additional knowledge gained from remaining in the course is helpful.

    LBUSD Board Policy for Class Withdrawal:

    · Withdrawals during the first four weeks of a semester (first 20 days) – Student receives no credit and no grade. No record is made on the student’s Cumulative Record. A student may drop a class by bringing a note signed by the parent requesting the program change to his/her counselor. For students withdrawing from the school, no record of enrollment is made other than dates of entrance and withdrawal.

    · Withdrawals during the middle weeks of a semester –Student receives no credit and no grade. Any class dropped after the fourth week of a semester requires the approval of a student’s parent and counselor. Any student who drops a class after the six (6) week drop period will receive an "F" on his/her semester report card for that class. Students withdrawing from the school receive the grade that has been earned up to the date of withdrawal. The grade is recorded and the receiving school will determine credit status.

    · Withdrawals during the last four weeks of a semester (last 20 days) – Student receives a grade of "F" (unless moving on to another school) and the date of withdrawal is also recorded on the student’s Cumulative Record. No credit is given unless granted by the school. If illness warrants a grade of Incomplete, the student will be expected to complete the remaining work to receive an official grade by the end of the following quarter. A grade of "F" will be given should the incomplete not be cleared.

    · Students withdrawing from the school receive the grade that has been earned up to the date of withdrawal. The grade is recorded and the receiving school will determine credit status.

    Child Safety

    Beginning March 25 the Sheriff’s Department will be giving citations to cars parked in the loading zones around campus. Any area that is marked 3-minute parking is considered a loading zone.  

    Also, per Lakewood Municipal Code - Section 3273, Lakewood has a child safety law that forbids drivers from loading or unloading students from the roadway adjacent to the school that encourages them to jaywalk through traffic to get to or from school. This means that all drop-offs need to happen on the school side of the street or it will result in a citation of a minimum of 100.00.
