District Hosts Budget Town Hall Meeting— Funding priorities, proposed budget discussed at public forum

Las Cruces Public Schools will host the third public meeting in a series of town hall-style gatherings on Thursday, May 4 at 5:30 p.m. in the boardroom at the Dr. Karen M. Trujillo Administration Complex. Led by the Finance Division, the Budget Town Hall meeting will demonstrate to the public how information is gathered to identify funding priorities for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year.  

LCPS Chief Financial Officer Chenyu “Alex” Liu will present an overview of the budget and the strategies the district employed to gather feedback from the public, including the use of a public survey. The Finance Division also launched a website earlier this year that includes several helpful links, past budgets, audits and other public documents related to the budget process.  

Last December, the Finance Division hosted the first Budget Town Hall meeting, followed by the gathering of public volunteers and district staff to help shape questions that were included in the public survey. Those survey results were presented in a separate public meeting on March 29.   

The public is invited to attend the May 4 meeting in person, or view it online using this link.
