Laguna Department of Education

Laguna Department of Education The Laguna Department of Education (LDoE) is a tribal education system focused on the education needs of the Laguna People.

Welcome to the Official Laguna Department of Education page. We will cover all departments, Laguna Elementary, Laguna Middle School, Division of Early Childhood and Partners for Success. The Pueblo of Laguna, through tribal sovereignty and the establishment of the Laguna Department of Education (LDoE), has been determining its own educational destiny since its inception. It is a young and progressive tribal education system built upon a model of shared decision making and focused on providing quality programs that address the educational needs of all Laguna people. We strive to improve and strengthen academic achievement by creating a disciplined, healthy and safe environment that is conducive to learning. The Pueblo of Laguna's Tribal Council took a historic educational step when it won the right to build a new middle school through a judicial decision. Original plans called for the B.I.A. to construct the new facility; however, the Laguna Tribal Council developed the strategy of acquiring the funds from the Bureau of Indian Affairs through a Public Law 93-638 contract. The construction process was an overwhelming success, and the B.I.A. acknowledged the success of the approach the tribe took in building the facility. The Department of Education The success of the Laguna Middle School construction project was the impetus for the Tribal Council to establish its own Department of Education to operate the new middle school and other programs such as Administrative Services, Early Childhood Programs, and Facilities Management. More recently, the Laguna Elementary School and the Partners for Successprogram have been added to the Department. A Board of Education was appointed by the Tribal Council to oversee the operation of educational services and in 1992 the Department began operations. Over the past several years, the Department has experienced tremendous growth with the reorganization of the Division of Early Childhood, and the transfer of the Laguna Higher Education program. The Laguna Early Childhood program was established in 1993 as a home-based early intervention program for children with special needs under the age of three. Later that same year, the program received a Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) to fund the Laguna Child Care Center. By November, 1994, the Tribal Council made a formal decision re-establishing the Laguna Head Start program under the Laguna Dept. of Education. With these programs now serving over 250 children and their families, the LDoE School Board established the Division of Early Childhood to manage these programs jointly. In May of 1995, a revised Educational Scholarship Ordinance was passed by the Tribal Council, providing almost three times as much funding than in previous years for higher education. Originally, the Laguna Higher Education was under the administration of the tribe but was later transferred over to the LDoE

Family Engagement Event

How Children Learn Best - By Playing!
Play Workshop: “Uncovering What is So important About Play”

Participants will explore memories of their own play for the purpose of understanding how their own play was essential to learning. We will discuss how our early experiences inform how we can best support the play (and development) of our children. The design of this workshop mirrors how children learn through different types of play.

We look forward to seeing you!
