LPS grateful for community support

The LPS community gave its stamp of approval to the 2013 proposal made by the school district to make important improvements to its school facilities.

"Roosevelt Elementary School. Critical Needs Remodeling and Technology Upgrades. Your Bond dollars at work. Thank you!"               

The bond proposal is allowing the school district to improve each classroom throughout the school district  by replacing windows, heating/air handling systems,  lighting, flooring, electrical, p.a. and phone systems;  along with adding new whiteboards, furniture and  technology. With these improvements, our classrooms will be transformed into modern, 21st Century learning environments, providing staff and students the tools  they need to provide a high quality education. 

In addition, we are excited to improve key common areas that are 40-60 years old, including Fine Arts auditoriums and classrooms, cafeterias and entrance ways. The district is also now positioned to make safety improvements through entrance ways and equipment.

We are so grateful for the community’s support. This was a significant request and we recognize the sizable investment that is being made. We truly believe this will be a significant boost for our community. Bringing in $195 million of investment over the next several years will renew and revitalize our pride in our schools and that impacts all of us here within the LPS borders. The staff is so excited to see the work begin. This will truly be a point of pride for all of us, as we look to attract and retain families.

This is the culmination of several years of planning and effort to live our district’s vision where “we see a school district with facilities that are updated and well maintained, with cutting edge technology and equipment”.

Again, from a grateful school community, THANK YOU!
