Loudoun County, Va. (October 8, 2014) – Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Eric Williams’ vision for the school system’s future and the Academies of Loudoun will be the focus of the Wednesday, October 8, meeting of the Loudoun Education Alliance of Parents (LEAP).
This meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) Administrative Offices, 21000 Education Court, Ashburn.
Topics Williams will discuss include:
- What does ideal teaching and learning in LCPS look like?
- What would a plan for moving the Loudoun County Public Schools to 2020 and beyond look like?
- How will we prepare our proposed budget for the next school year?
LCPS Director of Instructional Services Timothy Flynn will lead a discussion on the Academies of Loudoun, which will appear on the November 4 bond referendum.
The Academies of Loudoun is being developed by the School Board to replace and expand offerings at Monroe Technology Center (opened in 1977), allow the expansion and relocation of the Academy of Science (AOS) and enable the establishment of a new Academy of Engineering and Technology.
LEAP is a non-partisan network that promotes interaction between parents, teachers, School Board members and members of the Loudoun County Public Schools administrative team. LEAP meetings provide a forum for the discussion and sharing of common educational concerns and ideas. Each two-hour program features a panel discussion on topics of interest to parents and members of the community-at-large.
Each LCPS school elects two delegates from its PTA or PTO to attend LEAP meetings. In addition, the meetings are open to all parents of LCPS students and members of the public.
