Lodi Unified School District (Lodi USD) encompasses 350 square miles and serves the Cities of Lodi, Stockton, and the communities of Acampo, Clements, Lockeford, Victor, and Woodbridge in the Central Valley of Northern California.
Lodi USD 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.
Lodi USD is a major contributor to the economy of the area, employing over 3,000 people. In addition, over the last 12 years, Lodi USD has obtained over $100 million in State bond funds for the construction and renovation of school facilities.
Student enrollment is nearly 29,000 in kindergarten through grade 12. There are 49 school sites: 28 elementary schools, three K through eighth schools, six middle schools, four comprehensive high schools, two continuation high schools, and six special programs. In addition, Lodi USD has several preschool programs. The top five primary languages other than English are Spanish, Hmong, Urdu, Cambodian and Vietnamese.
