Message from the President

It is an honor to serve on the Board of Trustees for the Lowell Joint School District.  The staff of LJSD works hard each and every day to provide our students with a challenging and enriched educational experience.  All six schools in the district have been recognized for excellence in education from California Distinguished Schools to Golden Bell Awards to National Schools to Watch.  As important as academic achievement is, what makes Lowell Joint special is our commitment to the whole child.  In addition to setting high academic standards we also believe in teaching students about the importance of honesty, integrity and social responsibility.  We accomplish this with our Character Education programs.  Our entire staff shares a common goal, provide the best environment that will engender student success, we do this through open communication, collaboration and transparency.  I know this first hand not just as a board member but as a product of these schools and as a parent whose children attend them.  The only word that can be used to adequately describe the Lowell Joint School District is “family”. 


Sincerely, Anastasia 'Staci' Shackelford
