The Lansing School District logo was developed in 2014 and presented to the Board of Education for approval on August 14, 2014 under superintendent Yvonne Caamal Canul. The board approved with a unanimous vote.
A committee including students, administrators, staff, teachers and parents were charged with developing ideas for a new Lansing School District logo that would better represent the district and be a mark that is simple, clear, appropriate, widely recognizable, versatile, memorable and unique. The effort launched a rebranding and communication effort for the Lansing School District with a slogan of Caring, Collaboration, Excellence.
The logo features a graduation cap in black with a gold tassel. The graduation cap is a clear message to students and parents of all ages that the ultimate goal of a Lansing School District education is a graduation. Gold is used in the tassel as the ultimate color of honors and achievement.
The cap and tassel are fixed on top of a circle symbolizing a globe and the effort to have a student earn a Lansing education in a global environment. Rather than a map on the inside of the world, the circle shape includes shades of blue representing the diversity in our district and even the Grand River appearing in white.
The core of the logo pulls out the skyline of Lansing including the Capitol to truly be an absolute unique feature no other community in Michigan can claim. The skyline of the city appears with a star in the sky to feature our individual students and their potential as stars in our community.
