Welcome to Lincoln Public Schools and the Instruction webpages.  I am Matt Larson, Associate Superintendent for Instruction. I am proud to be part of a school district that is synonymous with a quality education and excellent programs.

Instruction at Lincoln Public Schools covers a rich and broad umbrella of services – all linked to teaching and learning – that ensure each student here has every opportunity to learn, grow and reach their full potential.

Instruction includes special education and gifted services, library media, early childhood education, federal programs and special student services such as counseling and attendance. Instruction oversees school improvement plans and staff development as well as assessment and evaluation.

In addition, Instruction coordinates curriculum and instruction for all our major subject areas at Lincoln Public Schools: Business, Character education, Career and Technical education, English and Reading, Family Consumer, Health and Physical education, Industrial Technology, Math, Music, Science, Social Studies, Technology, Visual Arts and World Language.

Our goal is to serve every classroom, every child, every day and we invite you to be our partner in learning for all children.
