The district made several notable recognitions during Tuesday night's School Board meeting, including outgoing Board of Education Member Carol Cooper, Dist. 5. Board members thanked Ms. Cooper for her dedication and leadership on the board, keeping the goals of the district in the forefront. “You lead with an open mind and an open heart,” said Vice President Cort, who added that it was a pleasure serving with Cooper. Superintendent Ruiz recalled the support he received from Ms. Cooper when he arrived at the district, ensuring that the district always kept the needs of students first. Mr. Frank, who replaced Cooper on the dais, recalled the close elections between the two, and how they grew to have tremendous respect for one another. President Tenorio, who joined the board alongside Cooper in 2020, recalled her time with Cooper during a tumultuous time on the board – coming out of a ransomware attack, a global pandemic and personal tragedy after the sudden loss of late superintendent Karen Trujillo. She applauded her hard work to make the district the best environment for students. Ms. Cooper addressed the board following a standing ovation, noting that “Of all the people I’ve been around – the caring and talented people I’ve been around – and the joy of putting kids first has been an honor. I’m so excited for our school district (with) Mr. Ruiz. I encourage us as a community to help our students focus on great outcomes that we know are possible. Every single student has purpose, and a need for education to be able to fulfill their purpose in life.”

LCPS busca la opinión pública sobre las prioridades presupuestarias La encuesta, disponible en inglés y español, está abierta hasta el 12 de enero de 2024 Las Escuelas Públicas de Las Cruces invita a los padres, estudiantes, personal y a la comunidad de Las Cruces a proporcionar comentarios sobre las prioridades presupuestarias a través de la encuesta anual de presupuesto, que está abierta desde ahora hasta el 12 de enero de 2024. La encuesta se puso en marcha después de la reunión pública del miércoles por la noche en la que los participantes recibieron una visión general del proceso presupuestario y un cronograma de cuándo se presentará un presupuesto final para su aprobación por parte de la Mesa Directiva de Educación de LCPS. Como parte de ese proceso, el Comité de Encuesta Presupuestaria, un grupo que incluye a administradores, maestros, padres y miembros de la comunidad, dirigió una sesión de recopilación de información. Al comité se le asignó la tarea de finalizar la encuesta, que obtiene información pública adicional sobre las prioridades de gasto en el distrito. Se celebrarán reuniones públicas adicionales en el primer trimestre de 2024. De acuerdo con el Departamento de Finanzas de LCPS, las reuniones actualizarán al público sobre los resultados de la encuesta y proporcionarán detalles sobre cualquier ajuste al presupuesto antes de presentar un borrador a la Mesa Directiva de Educación para su aprobación. Esas reuniones están programadas para el 12 de marzo, el 8 de mayo y el 21 de mayo de 2024. Todas las reuniones se llevarán a cabo en la sala de juntas del Complejo Administrativo Dra. Karen M. Trujillo a las 5:30 p.m. La encuesta comunitaria de presupuesto, disponible en inglés y español, se puede acceder aquí y está abierta hasta el 12 de enero de 2024: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/fin2025
