Surveys to guide LAPS cuts

-A A +A

Results will be shared with public next month

By Jennifer Garcia

Belt-tightening and budgeting is becoming commonplace in light of the country’s economic situation. Families and individuals are feeling the pinch, as are state and school entities.
For the past several months, the Los Alamos Public Schools Long Range Financial Planning Committee worked on putting together a series of surveys that allowed LAPS stakeholders to have input on the budget process. The survey closed on March 6 and now the planning committee will begin compiling information to be shared with the public during a school board meeting in April.
During Tuesday night’s school board meeting, the board briefly discussed the surveys.
A total of six surveys were available for request by the public. They included elementary programs, middle school programs, high school programs, athletics, technology, transportation, facilities, student services, curriculum and assessment and central office. The purpose of the surveys was to gauge which programs the public deems important to the school district. That feedback would then give LAPS administrators a better idea of where the budget could be trimmed.
Each survey took approximately 30 minutes to complete and the public was able to fill out any or all of the surveys.
