Lakeside Legacy Project
The Student Government Association would like to introduce every incoming freshman and new teacher to the legacy of Lakeside pride, spirit, and excellence by giving them a Lakeside spirit shirt. We are collecting gently used Lakeside spirt wear to gift the newest members of our community in the fall.

Current students can drop off to Mrs. Boggs in room 1215 and community members can drop off in the LHS main office between the hours of 10:00am-1:30pm.

Please make sure all spirit wear is washed before donating.

If you do not have any old spirit wear but would still like to contribute, the Walgreens located on the corner of Lavista and Oak Grove Road has Lakeside spirit wear available for purchase.

If you live in any of our surrounding neighborhoods or happen to be a former Viking yourself, please share SGA's Instagram post or the flyer in this news post on your social media or on the Next-Door app!
Work Based Learning Information
Work-Based Learning Programs (WBL) are structured educational experiences that integrate classroom learning (school based) with productive, structured work experiences (work based), related to a student’s career goals. This will increase their knowledge, skills, and abilities, for obtaining employment and/or post-secondary education. Click here to read the brochure on WBL!

Bus Routes

Providing safe, reliable, on-time service requires professional drivers, well-maintained buses and a competent support and management staff. As of 2013, the Transportation department manages 945 buses and 850 drivers to transport more than 65,000 students daily. Two-thirds of the District’s 99,000 students ride the school bus.

Mission & Vision

The vision of the DeKalb County School District is to inspire our community of learners to achieve educational excellence. Our mission is to ensure student success, leading to higher education, work, and life-long learning. We are making this vision and mission a reality – every day, in every classroom throughout the District.

Through community forums, focus groups, listening sessions, and more, we have engaged our stakeholders, refined our objectives, honed our procedures, and formulated a robust, highly-structured yet agile and adaptive strategic plan. We are pleased with the progress we have made thus far, and excited about the future – of our District, our community, and, most importantly, the 100,000+ students who daily bring to us their limitless potential.

The District has created performance measures, targets, and initiatives to ensure success in each goal area. A monitoring and data collection process has been developed, and rigorous progress check procedures have been implemented. At the local level, on-going training sessions are offered to all principals in order to support the work of aligning, refining, monitoring, and evaluating the continuous improvement efforts of each individual school.

As a community of learners, we are committed to excellence in everything we do – within the classroom and throughout the District. This continuous improvement process permeates each aspect of our Strategic Plan, and we are honored to partner with you to make it a reality for all.
