Hello LPAS Families and Friends! Below are my notes from April 19 2022 meeting.
My notes here are brief as we are back to being in-person. See the agendas and official minutes for more details.
Note: I’m one of two parent reprensentatives, so my notes are slanted towards parent/family topics. As far as notes go, they are probably incomplete, and are definitely not “official”. Official agendas and approved minutes are posted on the LPAS SBDM page and JCPS SBDM Council and Standing Committee Minutes site.

Comprehensive School Survey is Open
The Comprehensive School Survey is open until May 6th for all JCPS Students, Parents and Staff. It’s your chance to share your thoughts on LPAS. We review this data in-depth when it’s returned to us in the Fall to guide nearly all of our SBDM discussions - including budget, policy and culture and climate.
Making it Easier to Get Involved
Regarding culture and climate and budget: I made a request that we look into telepresence technology with the budget we have, to aid with culture and climate.
LGBTQ-inclusive Equity & Diversity Policy: Second Reading
We did a SECOND reading of the LGBTQ-inclusive Equity & Diversity Policy that I helped put together. Two members of our LGBTQ Committee were in attendance - Mr. Collins (Kindergarten teacher) and Ms. Sanchez (Mental Health Coach). That committee had read through the policy and had no objections or edits. We briefly discussed the survey and “reflection” requirement. We must make sure our survey and “reflection” do not invade privacy or trust. We collectively felt that what is being propose does not invade that trust.
And with that, JCPS’ first LGBTQ-inclusive Equity & Diversity Policy was accepted!
You can read the final policy document here.
See you next time!
See you in May!
