I am excited to announce a parent, community, and staff engagement opportunity for LSC. As we begin planning for the 2020-2021 school year, I would like to invite you to our first Campus Improvement Team (School Support Team) meeting via Zoom on Wednesday, June 3 at 11:30 am. To log into the Zoom meeting, click the link or go to zoom.com, select join meeting, and then enter Meeting ID: 926 1555 6069 Password: 9mfniC.

The meeting should last approximately 45 mins. During our first Campus Improvement meeting, we will review campus data and evaluate the proposed Campus Improvement Plan for 2020-2021, Parent Compact Agreement, and 2020-2021 Parent Engagement Policy.

In subsequent meetings held throughout the school year, we will discuss and request feedback regarding the areas of strengths and areas of improvement for our campus, identify campus needs and develop a Campus Improvement Plan for the next academic year. Meetings will be held once in the Fall semester and once in the Spring semester.
