Board Policy for Public Input:

The Lakeland Montessori Schoolhouse and Montessori Middle School Governing Board follows the same policy as the Polk County Public Schools Governing Board’s policy for public participation at board meetings. The policy can be located at this link: policy 0169.1 Public Participation at Board Meetings.

The Lakeland Montessori Governing Board has adopted the parent concern process here: Parent Concern Process Flow Chart.  The Governing Board is a policy board and does not resolve disputes between between parents and the school. They have appointed Josie Hill as the representative for Lakeland Montessori Schoolhouse and Heather Manrow as the representative for Montessori Middle School.  The representatives facilitate parent involvement, provide access to information, assist parents, and assist in resolving disputes.  Mrs. Hill can be contacted at via email or phone 863-698-0003 (cell phone). Ms. Manrow can be contacted via email at or phone 863-413-0003 (school office).
