Los Alamos Public Schools (LAPS) and other school districts around the country, are looking closely at adjusting K-12 school start times to better align with data about the amount of time students need to sleep and when. The purpose of the upcoming community and school meetings is to engage the public and LAPS stakeholders on whether to adjust the 2018-19 school start times for the LAPS high school, middle school and elementary schools. The meetings will also consider how to optimally set school start times for LAPS students and their families.
Who Should Attend a Community Meeting?
What Happens at the Community Meetings?
These meetings provide participants a chance to learn about the pros, cons and considerations for adjusting school start times and share their perspectives with the Los Alamos Public School Board. There will be a brief opening session to set the context for the meetings, but the bulk of the time will be small group conversations among participants.
What Happens After the Meetings?
Following the community meetings, the Los Alamos Public School Board will use the input received to inform its deliberations on adjusting school start times. The community meetings are convened and funded by LAPS.
Each day, community forums include multiple meetings. Some are especially for students, others for school staff and some for all stakeholders including students, parents, caregivers, staff, community leaders, and business professionals.
