Welcome! The School District of La Crosse is a recognized leader in providing unique, engaging experiences for our students. Believing that ‘one size does not fit all’ when it comes to education, the District provides both traditional, neighborhood school options as well as several choice programs and charter schools.

Led by an outstanding Board of Education, the District’s vision is for students to discover their talents and abilities and be prepared to pursue their dreams and aspirations while contributing effectively to their local, national and global communities. We hope this website will give you insights into our outstanding programs and services available to our students and families.

Yours in education,

Randy Nelson, Superintendent of Schools
