School Board Seeks Nomination for 2014 Achievement Award

LAPS News:

School Board President Jim Hall and members of the School Board invite students, staff, and community members to nominate any staff member, parent, community member, student or school volunteer for the 2014 Los Alamos Public Schools Excellence for Student Achievement Award.

Hall wrote in the invitation that there are a “myriad of individuals who give time, energy, and skills to better the lives of students. Los Alamos schools wouldn’t be where we are without the tremendous support of members of the student body, staff, and community.”

Los Alamos Public Schools will choose a recipient through an open nomination process. The nominee should be a person in the Los Alamos School District who has made a significant difference to student achievement during 2013. Nomination applications are available on the school district website, from School Board members, or by calling the district office 505.663.2230.

To be considered for this award the nomination must be returned to the district office by close of business Feb. 11. The selection for the 2014 Achievement Award winner will be announced at the March 11 School Board meeting.

The annual award seeks to promote enhancement of student achievement and to focus the School Board on efforts to improve student achievement. The 2014 winner will be recognized by the Los Alamos Public Schools Board in March and presented a plaque provided by the New Mexico School Board Association.
