The Lincoln Parish School System boasts many specialized services in many areas. Here are just a few brief descriptions of some of the services we offer in Lincoln Parish.
Lincoln 21 ACHIEVE (Click for more info on ACHIEVE)
When Danny Bell became superintendent of Lincoln Parish schools, he had one goal at heart--strengthen our public schools while accelerating student academics at all grade and ability levels. Research has shown that the most successful schools not only have solid community support, but active interest and participation from its members. Therefore his vision included the implementation of a critically important component—effective community partnerships. Toward this effort, Lincoln ACHIEVE was launched. And from its beginning in August of 2006, this new initiative has worked to promote “Accelerating Children Higher In Educational Values Everywhere.” Coordinated within the parish’s fourteen public schools, ACHIEVE provides a mechanism for strategies and resources to be customized in order to meet the unique needs of a school’s student body while positively impacting academic achievement.
The Lincoln Parish School Board operates 68 school bus routes, 5 of which are special Education routes.

A Major goal of the Lincoln Parish Title I Family Involvement Program is to encourage greater involvement of parents in the Education of their children. Research shows that greater involvement in children's learning is a critical link to achieving a high quality education, better grades, and fewer discipline problems. The title I Family Resource Center has been established to promote a stronger home-school partnership. Through the family resource center families can receive information, instructional materials, personal assistance, training and support in order to help themselves and their children.
