Application Results

Now that many of the college applications are done, the acceptances are starting to roll in. Please remember to bring a copy of your college acceptance letters in to the guidance office. If your notification was in an email or on an online college account, you could forward the email or screenshot the screen showing the acceptance. My email address is ddequevedo@lakelandsd.org

We will not announce your college of attendance if we do not have evidence of your acceptance. It is also helpful for us to collect this data as it will help us guide future applicants to each college. Even if you receive a denial letter, it is very helpful if you can provide that information to me. Certainly, I won't share your individual information with anyone but would like to collect the data to better assist future students.
