Superintendent Welcome

Greetings!  

As Detroit Lakes Public Schools prepares to graduate its 134th class of seniors, I am excited to begin the 2023-24 school year.  We are pleased to offer state-of-the-art facilities for our students and staff and programming to suit the needs of all our students.  Along with that, we have an incredible staff that helps make your child’s school day an exceptional experience.   Support staff, teachers, custodians, food service, bus drivers, and administrators, are all working to instill our values around Laker Pride.

Starting a preschool and ending with our high school seniors, our mission comes to life each and every day. To fill all of our sails with Laker Pride. These values of Purpose, Relationships, Innovation, Development, and Equity are the cornerstones for our district to chart a new course and prepare each and every student for the 21st Century.

So, I want to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year whether you are just starting to set sail on your journey with us or your voyage will be concluding this year, we are excited to have you on board and look forward to an amazing year.

Sails Up!
