Lyman Elementary School serves 605 students, kindergarten to sixth grade, through 82 dedicated faculty members. It offers its students a state of the art learning environment with Internet access in all classrooms so all students can become part of the global society. Most classrooms have four computers for students to use during the school day. Students have access to a fully automated library and media center as well. A variety of educational programs such as after-school tutoring, Enrichment courses, and online curricula provide students with a wealth of opportunity to excel and achieve. Each teacher can better meet student needs as well with data warehousing resources developed by district personnel. These resources allow teachers to profile the past performance of a student and better meet the specific needs of the individual student.

What's New at Lyman?

Lyman Elementary School is a Title I School-wide School, which means that we receive federal funds to assist us in meeting our student's educational needs. One percent of those funds are designated for parental involvement which is how we purchase the student planners that are sent home daily and used as a communicative tool between home and school.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is the primary piece of federal legislation dealing with the education of children and youth in homeless situations. In compliance with federal and state regulations, the district and Lyman Elementary strive to meet the educational needs of homeless students. Through the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, the district and Lyman Elementary are able to provide homeless students access to school and appropriate services while reducing school transfers and enhancing educational stability and continuity. Some of the services offered to qualifying students include: IN-SCHOOL TUTORING, ASSISTANCE OBTAINING VITAL RECORDS/DOCUMENTS, SCHOOL SUPPLIES, AND MEDICAL RESOURCES OR REFERRALS (WHEN APPLICABLE)

It is also our goal to strengthen parental involvement and to ensure the educational rights of unaccompanied youth. If you should have questions about the services and resources available, please contact Mrs. Lawrence, Lyman Social Worker, @ 228-832-2257
