About LGSD

Welcome to the La Grande School District Website! This site is designed to provide our community and visitors with the most up-to-date information about the district, activities, and programs. 
LGSD Mission Statement 

In the La Grande School District we believe every student can learn and deserves a safe, motivating, and challenging school environment.

Therefore, it is the mission of the La Grande School District to provide a learning environment where educators work collaboratively to ensure that each student maximizes their learning. To accomplish this mission we will use best practices and data to ask and answer:
  • What do we want our students to learn? 
  • How will we know what students have learned? 
  • How do we respond when they don't learn? 
  • How do we respond when they do learn?
Our Schools
