You won't find a town called Lakeshore on a map, but you'll soon feel the Lakeshore community - and LANCER PRIDE - in your heart. We believe all children deserve an engaging and inspiring education - and the opportunity to discover and pursue their own paths. With Passionate educators, the latest technology and unique opportunities, Lakeshore does more than equip our students to succeed in life - we empower them to lead their lives with character and integrity.
Lakeshore Excellence Foundation
Through the generosity of our donors, the LEF has funded more than 70 academic projects, 40 hardware and software projects, and a wide variety of outreach, cultural and aesthetic programs, many open to the entire community. In 2016, we successfully completed our largest infrastructure project to date by investing $600,000 to transform all of our libraries into 21st Century Learning Centers. We are now poised to again reach higher: we’re reaching out for contributors to help us support the implementation of STEM throughout all grades levels at Lakeshore Public Schools.
The date for the 2021 Graduation Ceremony has changed to Friday, June 4 at 7:00 PM. The Rain Date is Sunday, June 6 at 3:00 PM. Due to COVID, public attendance will be limited.
LPS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Leadership Team
Lakeshore Public Schools’ Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Leadership Team is now recruiting for committee members. Applications close May 21, 2021.
In April, LPS Board of Education announced the creation of a DEI Leadership Team, a group dedicated to furthering initiatives that support marginalized students and staff. How equity is acknowledged, understood and incorporated into our school structure will impact our practices and programs, student opportunity and, ultimately, achievement. In our Mission Statement, we commit to working in partnership with families and the community to this end. Lakeshore Public Schools is committed to sustaining a tradition of educational excellence within a safe, stimulating learning environment that recognizes and accepts the value of the diversity among our students, staff and community. As leaders in their own lives, students will achieve their greatest potential learning cooperatively alongside those whose perspectives and backgrounds are different from their own.
The DEI Leadership Team will be charged with creating an Equity Action Plan, actively contributing to discussions on a regular basis, and assisting district leadership in holding the district accountable for implementing DEI goals and measuring progress towards them.
We encourage anyone with interest in this opportunity to apply.

On Monday, March 22, the Lakeshore Board of Education moved forward on hiring Mr. Greg Eding as its next Superintendent of Schools, contingent upon successful contract negotiations.
Board President, Dr. Jason Beckrow stated, “Mr. Eding’s calm, stable leadership; his focus on collaboration and continuous improvement; and his passion for children and for the Lakeshore community will serve the district well. His plan for the next 90 days includes enhancing relationships and partnerships, increasing the use of relevant data, establishing a team first culture, fostering community engagement and ensuring staff support. The Board looks forward to working with him to drive that work and more well into the future.”

Throughout the process the board received guidance from the Michigan Leadership Institute and input from the staff and community. “We’re incredibly grateful to the administrators, teachers and community members who gave us their thoughts on various candidates throughout this process,” Beckrow said. “We will rely on everyone’s passion for Lakeshore and our students to continue to move the district forward.”
