Bell schedule may change for LAPS students

-A A +A

The school district is looking at three different options

By Jennifer Garcia

Editor’s note: This is the first of a two-part series on the proposed bell schedule changes for Los Alamos Public Schools.

Change seems to be the theme for the 2010-2011 school year. Los Alamos High School students have dealt with construction at the school and on Diamond Drive for months and can look forward to more in the months ahead.

Students might also be looking at a change in the school day if LAPS administrators decide that changing the bell schedule could save some money.

During Thursday night’s Board of Education work session at Mountain Elementary, Transportation Supervisor Keith Rosenbaum said the district is trying to come up with ways to best serve the students and save money. He said administrators have been working on a 7:40 a.m. start time for elementary students and an 8:30 a.m. start time for high school students.

However, there are other bell schedule variations that have been presented to administrators, as well. LAPS Superintendent Gene Schmidt said there were actually three serious schedule proposals. One proposed elementary starting first; the second proposed secondary grades starting first and the third called for the schedules to stay the way they are.
