Located the the Santa Cruz Mountains just south of Los Gatos, Lakeside Joint School District has served the families of our  Mountain Community for over 135 years!


Lakeside Welcomes Our New Superintendent/ Principal!

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Lakeside Joint School District, I’m pleased to announce the appointment of Shameram Karim — “Shammy” — as Superintendent/Principal, effective July 1, 2017.  Shammy is a principal in the Tracy school district, currently at Villalovoz Elementary School. Previously she was a teacher in general and special education classrooms.  She holds BA and MA degrees and is pursing her doctorate in education.

The Board would like to thank the teachers, staff, and parents who assisted in the interview process.  Their input and insights were invaluable in helping to review a very strong pool of applicants.  Going forward, we encourage everyone to help welcome Shammy and introduce her to our wonderful school and community.  She is very excited to come to Lakeside and to get to know everyone.  Shammy will attend Spirit Day on June 2; please join us and help make it a warm welcome to Lakeside!
