As school board members we feel that it is necessary to ask our constituants to please read proposed House Bill 241.This proposed legislation would drastically modify the formula used by the Public Education Department to fund school districts in our state.How will HB 241 affect Los Alamos Public Schools?• Although $350 million will be added to the total state school funding pot, Los Alamos Public Schools will lose $1.87 million.
• The state average increase per district will be 28.09 percent, Los Alamos Public School’s “increase” will be -7.08 percent.
• The loss of $1.87 million in funding would affect core academic programs, career/technical education, gifted programs, bilingual-multicultural programs, arts and music, health and physical education, special education and appropriate staff, and athletics and extracurricular activities.
• Gifted education will no longer fall under the umbrella of special education. There will be inadequate gifted funding for our identified gifted population and no Individualized Education Plans (IEPs).
