We Want to Hear from You – Weigh in on the School LSAT and HSA Budgets 2/19

The Lafayette LSAT is preparing to advise Dr. Broquard about the 2024-2025 school year budget priorities. The Lafayette HSA is also preparing its budget. As part of the process, the LSAT and HSA hope to hear what is most important to our community members. As the budget process progresses, adjustments may need to be made, and your feedback makes a difference. Please complete the Lafayette LSAT and HSA Budget Survey to share your priorities by February 19, 2024.

 The LSAT advises the principal on the school’s DCPS budget, which covers costs associated with personnel (teachers, aides, administration, office staff), professional development, and specific technology and other supplies. The HSA budget, which comes from the Bear Fund, sponsorships, and events like the Auction, has traditionally helped fill gaps left by the school’s DCPS budget. HSA funding does not pay for personnel but covers costs of classroom supplies, extracurricular programming, support for the Peace and Recess Programs, and teacher appreciation, among other important initiatives.
