The Lafayette Local School Advisory Team (LSAT) is putting out a call for any community members who may be interested in serving as the Community Member representative on the LSAT. The LSAT is a team that advises the principal on matters such as school priorities, budget, academic, and school climate issues among many others. DC Public Schools (DCPS) guidelines require a Community Member as part of the LSAT team. This will aid in having an LSAT that is representative of the broader school community therefore ensuring recommendations to the Lafayette Principal reflect perspectives of the entire school body and community.
According to DCPS LSAT guidelines, the Community Member representative must be a resident of the local school’s boundary or work within the local school’s boundary or work with one of the local school’s partner organizations. The LSAT Community Member representative will be elected by current LSAT members. LSAT meetings will be held approximately monthly on Wednesdays, in the early morning or evening. All meetings, unless agreed to by the LSAT at a prior meeting, will be hybrid (both in-person and virtual). Please submit statements of interest to by September 15, 2022. Interested candidates will be invited to attend a meeting on September 21, 2022 at 7:30AM to share more about their background and willingness to serve.
