The Lemon Grove School District has been struggling with budget cuts in recent years, but has managed to keep a vibrant educational program alive. Even though one middle school was closed, and the sixth-grade camp program cut, the school board recently managed to find enough money to re-hire some badly-needed teachers' aides and janitors. The board president, as of Oct. 2010, is Tim Shaw. Other board members are Katie Dexter, Larry Loschen, Blanca Brown and Jay Bass.
The school board meets in the Community Center twice a month, every other Tuesday.
The district includes six elementary schools and one middle school. Lemon Grove Middle school is closed for two years, to save money and for renovation as part of a planned school/library project.
