District Mission

The Hartland/Lakeside School District’s Mission is to provide a diverse and dynamic educational program that meets the unique learning styles of all students.

District Vision

The district identifies seven key themes that represent our views and beliefs in how we will provide high quality education for our students.

Our district will provide:

• A rigorous and consistent curriculum emphasizing an accountability of high expectations and quality instruction that educates the whole child (skills and talents not measured on standardized tests) and demonstrates the importance of
the fine arts.

• A climate and culture of a highly collaborative and productive staff that take ownership of student performance, encourages parental involvement, displays a positive responsiveness to student issues, and meets the expectations of the
district’s business model.

• High quality teachers, administrators, and support staff and ongoing professional development to ensure excellence in teaching and learning.

• An understanding that children have different learning styles and that the educational program, instructional delivery, and assignment of resources must vary for the benefit of individualized learning needs.

• Aesthetically appealing and well maintained physical areas that have a productive influence on student learning.

• Frequent and clear communication to parents, staff, and the community pertaining to our educational operations and objectives by utilizing multiple venues.

• An engaged community where the district seeks connections and expresses the view that “We are more than a school system, we are the community”.

The above themes outline the district’s three year vision, each of these include a comprehensive action plan.


State of the Art Facilities

As of 2002, Hartland-Lakeside offers newly remodeled and renovated elementary schools at Hartland North and South. North Shore Middle School was constructed in 1997. The original Lakeside School, now called “The Little Red Schoolhouse,” has been updated and renovated to its original look.

High Test Scores

Our students consistently score well above the state average on the WKCE (Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination) in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.

Smaller Class Sizes

Hartland-Lakeside offers a low student/teacher ratio, making class sizes smaller than state requirements.



Hartland-Lakeside offers interscholastic and intramural sports programs in all grade levels. Middle school offerings include basketball, volleyball and cross country. Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade  participate in soccer, basketball, flag football and track and field.   All students in good standing are able to participate.


Hartland-Lakeside offers a variety of programs geared towards the arts, including drama, creative writing, music, band, choir, and art classes.

Leadership Programs

Student leadership clubs such as Student Council, the Builders Club (a service club sponsored by the Kiwanis Club) and the Buddies club offer students in grades 6 – 8 the chance to develop and display leadership capabilities within their peer group.

Staff Picture

Over the past several years, Hartland/Lakeside has worked hard in providing a quality well rounded educational program for our students. In meeting the objectives of our strategic vision, our district understands the value and importance of sound and meaningful instructional practices. Our district emphasizes the value of hiring and retaining quality teachers. We know that in order to meet the challenges of state mandates and changes in educational expectations our teaching staff will need to be highly skilled and knowledgeable.

Our teachers participate in intensive training and professional development throughout the summer and school year. All of our teachers have received in-depth professional development, based on Columbia University’s Teacher College. In addition, teachers in the primary, intermediate, and middle schools assist in facilitating the Arrowhead K-12 math initiative and have received accolades for their work with all the feeder schools in Lake Country.

As a result of our supportive community and support for teachers, we have been fortunate to be able to recruit highly skilled and experienced teachers that desire to work in the Hartland/Lakeside district. Our innovative and unique pay for performance model is a tier promotional advancement process that recognizes teachers’ curricular knowledge, experience, and instructional skills. In visiting our classrooms, you will see teachers constructing many enriching and creative methods in teaching high-level curricular objectives. We are proud of the fact that our teachers seek every opportunity to collaborate and continually monitor student learning to evaluate their instructional practices.

Board Meetings and Agenda

Public Notices


HLSD-3The Hartland Lakeside School District is dedicated to nurturing the natural curiosity and love of learning that all children possess. We are committed to educating the whole child by supporting the intellectual, social, and emotional growth of each individual. We believe that students’ needs are best met in the classroom alongside their peers. Our rigorous curriculum sets high standards for all students in reading, math, science, social sciences, and the arts. Technology is utilized in classrooms to enhance communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. Our students develop the ability to transfer learning to new situations, a necessary skill for success in the every changing global economy.

Research demonstrates that the single most important in-school factor in student achievement is the expertise of the teacher. The Hartland Lakeside School District understands this and invests in the professional development of its teachers to improve classroom instruction. We have created a learning community in which teacher teams come together on an ongoing basis to analysis student work and plan instruction that meets the needs of all learners.

What is Public School Open Enrollment?
Wisconsin’s inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they live.  Applications may be submitted to up to three nonresident school districts.

Who may participate in open enrollment?
Students in 4-year-old kindergarten to grade 8 may apply to participate in open enrollment. Parents should call their resident school districts to find out if their 4-year-old children qualify for open enrollment.

How and when may parents apply?

The open enrollment application period for the 2017-2018 school year is from February 6 – April 28, 2017.  The application period closes at 4:00 pm on April 28, 2017.

Parents may apply online at http://dpi.wi.gov/oe or by submitting a paper application to the non-resident school district.

What is an EXCEPTION to the open enrollment application period?

Parents normally apply for open enrollment for the following school year during a three-month application period, which begins in February and ends on the last weekday in April.  However, 2011 Act 114 established a procedure by which parents may apply for open enrollment outside of the regular application period.

Under what circumstances may parents apply for an exception?
There are seven circumstances under which a parent may apply for an exception:

  • The student’s parent and the nonresident and resident school districts agree that attending the nonresident school district is in the best interests of the student.
  • The student’s resident school district determines that the student is a victim of a violent crime.
  • The student is or has been homeless in the current or preceding school year.
  • The student has been the victim of repeated bullying or harassment that has been reported to the resident school district and continues in spite of action taken.
  • The student’s place of residence has changed due to the parent’s military orders.
  • The student moved into this state within the past 30 days.
  • The student’s place of residence has changed as a result of a court order or custody agreement, or the student was placed in a foster home or with a person other than the student’s parent or removed from a foster home or the home of a person other than the student’s parent.
