Gov announces grant for LAHS 2.0 program

-A A +A

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez announced that Los Alamos will receive a $100,000 Early College in the High School grant that enables Los Alamos High School students to work on college degrees even as students earn their high school diploma.
In partnership with the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos, LAHS will forge alliances with northern New Mexico businesses, industries, and universities to provide Los Alamos High School 2.0.
“Early college high school programs are a critical part of our education reform to ensure that every New Mexico student is prepared to enter the workforce or college,” Martinez said in announcing the program.
LAHS 2.0’s aims are to personalize learning pathways for students, open college doors to historically underserved students and position graduates to be the first choice for hire when entering the job market or seeking acceptance to a university.
Dr. Cynthia Rooney, UNM-LA Dean of Instruction, congratulated LAPS.
“We look forward to partnering with the school district on this initiative,” Rooney said.
LAHS 2.0 is designed to generate a new pool of college and skilled career graduates with associate’s degrees, which proponents believe stands to benefit the entire state of New Mexico.
