The Los Alamos School Board adopted a $37,953,364 million operational budget for the 2018-19 school year at its Tuesday baord meeting.

 
The budget reflects parent, student, staff and community priorities and is designed to meet the mission and eight focus areas in the LAPS Strategic Plan.
 
The first three focus areas are:
  • Student Well-Being;
  • Student Learning; and
  • Teacher and Staff Well-Being and Excellence.

The Board plans to provide a much needed 4.5 percent raise for all staff starting July 1, 2018. The total raise for LAPS staff over the last four budgets is 10 percent.

 
“I extend sincere thanks and appreciation to our competent staff for building a balanced budget designed to meet the Strategic Plan,” School Board President Jenny McCumber said.
 
McCumber also thanked the New Mexico Legislature for its hard work in passing a public education budget that increased the School Funding Formula allocation.
