The Lansing Public School District is the urban public school district covering 52 square miles including the city of Lansing, Michigan, part of the city of East Lansing, and parts of the townships of Delta, DeWitt, Lansing, and Watertown.


Public school in Lansing began in May 1847. Between 1847 and 1851, three separate school districts occupied the then-small city. The districts were consolidated into a single school district in 1861 as required by the new city charter.[1]
