Los Alamos School Board Meeting Highlights

Dist. 43 Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard presented the Los Alamos Middle School Science Bowl team and its coach, LAMS science teacher Naomi Unger, with certifictes from the N.M. Legislature commemerating their performance at the Nationals in Washington D.C. The team was 16th in the nation out of 4,000 teams. The team actually beat the second place finishers during an earlier round. Only six teams were made up of students from only a single public school rather than a combination of the best students from a number of schools in a given district,  which makes the achievement of the LAMS team even more of an achievement, Unger said.

David Phillips, lead mentor for Team Y, the Los Alamos High School robotics team, made a proposal to use the District’s property, currently used by PEEC, for a new robotics and STEM education center when the new Los Alamos Nature Center is complete and PEEC moves into that facility. LAPS staff will look into the proposal and a specific plan will be proposed at a later date. Photo by Bonnie J. Gordon/ladailypost.com
Because Public Education Department deadlines are closing in for LAPS proposals to alter the current End of Course Exam and Teacher Evaluation programs PED has imposed on New Mexico school districts, Superintendent Gene Schmidt suggested that LAPS staff take the lead in crafting the proposals. After Schmidt assured the Board that staff will continue to solicit input from teachers, administrators and parents, the Board agreed unanimously to allow staff to proceed with Board oversite.
