Lake County School District’s SMARTER goals

Lake County School District (LCSD) was growing rapidly, but the revenues needed to keep up with growth weren’t materializing and student achievement was suffering as a result. LCSD decided to embark upon the Smarter School Spending journey to put an end to reactive, short-term budget cutting and, thereby, enable a coherent long-term approach to reaching its student achievement goals. Setting SMARTER goals was an important part of LCSD’s success.
