Joint County/Schools Committee strengthens ties

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

In her seven years living in Los Alamos, School Board Vice President Joan Ahlers told county councilors Tuesday she is not aware of there ever having been such solid cooperation between the county and the schools as exists today.

During the regular County Council meeting held in Council Chambers, Ahlers praised that cooperation saying, “We serve the same people,” and she thanked council members and county staff for their participation on the Joint County/Schools Committee created to benefit the schools.

Councilor Fran Berting said it is essential to continue the joint cooperation.

Councilor Mike Wheeler agreed, saying “This is another example of how this community can move ahead and become a leader in the state, I wouldn’t be surprised if other districts start to adopt this joint approach.”

As a result of the joint committee meetings, council and the school board passed resolutions committing both organizations to work together for the betterment of the schools.

School board member Ken Johnson said without the joint effort, the schools could make a dent but it will take the whole county to make it work.

Councilor Nona Bowman said she knows there are extreme needs in the schools and encouraged the community to vote in favor of next month’s school bond.
