LASD Water Testing Results

Given recent concerns regarding drinking water safety, we made the decision to test our City drinking water throughout the school district. The City is responsible for testing the water they provide to the community. We are required to test our pool water and drinking water coming from wells.

Ludington Area School District tested 51 taps, and two of the 51 exceeded the threshold for parts per million of lead. Both taps testing over the threshold were taken out of service, and replaced with lead-free fixtures.  

Meanwhile, we continue to replace old water fountains with modern fountains which allow the public to fill water bottles.  We have at least one of these stations in each of our school buildings, and they have already saved nearly 100,000 water bottles from going to landfills.

Community Feedback Survey

As we look to the future of educating our community’s children, it’s important to understand and

Facilities Study Information

The five (5) year Strategic Plan that was adopted by the Board of Education on January 19, 2015 called for the creation of a committee of administrators, teachers, other school personnel, and community members to develop a long term facilities plan through consultation with a construction management company and an architect and engineer. This plan also called for the development of a facilities improvement plan that evaluates the cost effectiveness of upgrading existing facilities vs. new construction. For more information on the project see the Facilities Assement page.
