Dr. Kurt Steinhaus and kids at Mountain Elementary

Happy 2019 to our LAPS families. I hope you had a wonderful break and an opportunity to rejoice, reflect and refresh. Now, as we head in to the second half of the school year, LAPS is preparing for the upcoming legislative session under our new administration. The School Board has endorsed six priorities for 2019 which we will present during the 60-day session which opens on January 15. These priorities are to:

  • Implement a 4-year plan to provide raises for all school employees so that New Mexico becomes regionally competitive when compared to Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado and Utah
  • Allocate funding to implement school safety plans across New Mexico
  • Allocate funding “Above the Line” to increase local decision making and support student success
  • Increase understanding about the importance of student and staff well-being
  • Pass a paperwork reduction act and a moratorium on “unfunded mandates”
  • Allow school districts to use short-cycle assessments to demonstrate student achievement growth

In the meantime, LAPS will continue to support our students and staff with innovative learning, instructional supports and capital improvement projects. It is our goal for the school district to thrive.

Dr. Kurt Steinhaus
