Lodi Unified School District encompasses 350 square miles and serves the cities of Lodi, North Stockton, and the communities of Acampo, Clements, Lockeford, Victor, and Woodbridge in the Central Valley of Northern California
Lodi Unified School District was created in 1967, when voters approved the merger of 18 elementary districts and the union high school district. The boundary, established in 1922, followed that of the old Lodi Union High School District. Over the last 30 years principally uninhabited territory was ceded to adjoining districts south of the Stockton Deep Water Channel north of Jahant Road (at Highway 99) and south of Hammer Lane. The district is a major contributor to the economy of the area, employing over 3,000 people. In addition, over the last 12 years the district has obtained over $100,000,000 in state bond funds for the construction and renovation of school facilities throughout the district.
Student enrollment is 29,800 in Kindergarten through grade twelve. There are 49 school sites, 33 elementary, 7 middle, 4 comprehensive high schools, and two continuation high schools. In addition, the district offers two elementary community day schools, and one middle community day school, a Middle College High School, an adult school, an Independence School, a Career Center, Children's Center, a Developmental Center for disabled students, and several pre-school programs. The top five primary languages other than English are Spanish, Hmong, Urdu, Cambodian and Vietnamese.
