  • Assistant Superintendent Dean announces retirement

    Assistant Superintendent of Schools Paula Dean announced her retirement today.

    Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gene Schmidt said in a written statement that he accepted her retirement this morning with “great reluctance.”

    Schmidt also congratulated her on her career in Los Alamos, and credited her for actively promoting academic achievement for the district’s students and professional development among the teachers and staff. Schmidt also credited her with playing a leading role in helping the Los Alamos Public School District achieve district wide accreditation.

    Though she announced her retirement, she will still continue on the job through the school year, Schmidt said in his statement.

    Dean started her career with LAPS as the Director of Curriculum and Development, and according to Schmidt her familiarity and skill in implementing  the state’s “Common Core” curriculum (CC is a program that develops deeper understanding of the concepts behind English and Math), has been recognized by the state. She then became principal of Barranca Mesa Elementary for four years before becoming Assistant Superintendent for the past three years.

    More details on this developing story will be posted on LAMonitor.com.

  • Pope resigning on Feb. 28, conclave in March

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday that he would resign Feb. 28 — the first pontiff to do so in nearly 600 years. The decision sets the stage for a conclave to elect a new pope before the end of March.

    The 85-year-old pope announced his decision in Latin during a meeting of Vatican cardinals on Monday morning.

    He emphasized that carrying out the duties of being pope — the leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics worldwide — requires "both strength of mind and body."

    "After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry," he told the cardinals. "I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only by words and deeds but no less with prayer and suffering.
