  • LAPS receives additional funding from state

    Los Alamos was one of seven school districts and a charter school to new funding from the state’s "Reads to Lead" program Thursday.

    The New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) made the notifications this morning and the recipients were among 43 applications for funding received by NMPED.

    The recipients will implement new programs focused on literacy from Kindergarten through the third grade starting in the 2012-2013 school year. These new funds will be used in combination with successful efforts in place in many of these districts and be specifically targeted to helping the students who struggle most in reading.

    Los Alamos will receive $177,068 from the grant.

    “We thought we had a unique opportunity to expose students to four utilities - work some actual construction projects, see the contract administration and the customer service that’s involved in an engineering job,” said Deputy Utilities Manager James Alarid. “And we had some tasks that we needed some help with, so it filled a gap for us.”
