On Friday, Nov. 22, Save Our Schools Los Alamos met with Deputy Secretary Paul Aguilar of the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) to ask that PED modify its policies and allow local jurisdictions to supplement K-12 education operating funds with local monies, a practice currently prohibited in New Mexico but something that is practiced in most other states.
Save Our Schools Los Alamos will meet with members of the Los Alamos Public Schools Administration, School Board, and County Council in the coming week to discuss the results of the meeting.
Next Sunday, we’ll share with you what we’ve learned in the Education 101 column published in the Los Alamos Daily Post.
Save Our Schools Los Alamos is an organization of concerned citizens focused on the Los Alamos Public School District’s K-12 education funding shortage and its impact on the children of Los Alamos. To read more about Save Our Schools Los Alamos, go to http://soslosalamos.com.
