As LAPS school board vice president, I’d like to invite and encourage all LAPS community members to attend several of the Community Input meetings that will be held in September and October.
The exact dates, times and locations are listed down below. These meetings are designed to be informational to the community as well as for the Board to take input from our community stakeholders. The primary focus of these meetings is to help the Board be well informed when we make our decision as to which of the elementary schools will be remodelled.
This decision will be made by the School Board at our Nov. 10 regular Board meeting. The Board will also be presenting some of the accomplishments achieved with our previous successful bond sales and give an overview of some of the future major facilities projects that we hope to tackle over the next 5 to 7 years.
The first two meetings will be held this Thursday and next Monday in Los Alamos town site. The format of these meetings will be an informative presentation by the Board, followed by a breakout discussion session for small groups. The Board will subsequently take ideas from these small group discussions for consideration in our decision.
The two October meetings will be held in White Rock. The format of these meetings is yet to be determined. The School Board will hold a work session on Thursday, Sept. 24 where we will consider the input from the previous two community meetings and decide on the format for the subsequent meetings.
So the September and October meetings are likely to have a different “flavor” and potentially discuss different, or additional information. You are encouraged to try to attend one of each of these meetings if possible:
- Thursday Sept. 17, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Aspen School
- Monday Sept. 21, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Barranca School
- Thursday Oct. 15, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Pinon School
- Monday Oct. 19, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Chamisa School
