Education > Board asked to look at bond for facility upgrades

By Tris DeRoma

If you’re a longtime Los Alamos resident and you happen to revisit the high school’s “music wing,” where all the music classes take place, chances are you’d instantly recognize it.
That’s because according to some of the faculty, not much has changed there in the past 60 years.
As the Los Alamos School Board makes preparations to bond for more school reconstruction projects, members from the Los Alamos High School’s music faculty reminded the board of that.
The high school was the first school Los Alamos residents approved for reconstruction, which started in 2009.
However one section of the school, where most of the school’s bands, symphonies and choral groups are headquartered, along with the group’s equipment, was skipped for reconstruction for a later time.
Jason Rutledge, the high school’s choir director came to a recent board meeting to remind the board that that time has come.
He told the board that problems caused by 60 years of wear and tear, along with a growing student population, have over have only gotten worse. He told the board the entire wing should be included for funding when it comes time for the district’s next general obligation bond vote.
