Welcome to the Lauderdale County School System. These are exciting days in Lauderdale County. We began a one-to-one technology initiative, the STEP program, in 2014 by giving all eighth-grade students a Chromebook, and that program has grown now to include all students in grades 7-12. In its third year, our Linking Lauderdale program continues to grow, building mutually beneficial programs and relationships between our system's students and our county's employers. Our elementary and secondary teachers continue to receive crucial training on reading strategies that ensure the success of every student. These and other programs and initiatives make for very exciting days in Lauderdale County. I invite you to join us in our continual journey to achieve excellence in education!
