Message from the Executive Director
Time flies when you’re having fun! I cannot believe that it has been a decade since LAPCS launched. I still have vivid memories of working at my kitchen table as the sole employee of LAPCS and writing our first, three-year strategic plan. When I read it now, it makes me laugh because I fully admit, I didn’t know what I was doing. However, as I write this note to you, we are working on our 3rd three-year plan, and I’m happy to say it’s a great one. I will be sharing it with everyone at our upcoming annual statewide conference on Dec. 14th in New Orleans, and I hope you will be there. We have some great speakers lined up including Supt. John White; Louisiana’s Poet Laureate; and Dr. Dan Willingham from Universiy of Virginia, as well as a plethora of sessions covering key topics for charter board members, school leaders, and school administrators. Not to mention, we also have an excellent pre-conference party planned.
