Time to apply for LPS Citizens Academy: Learn ABCs of our schools

Lincoln Public Schools is inviting Lincoln citizens to participate in the annual LPS Citizens Education Academy: a series of monthly gatherings that include hands-on interactive experiences depicting a true, behind-the-scenes sense of LPS.

Meetings are generally scheduled the second Monday evening of each month, but also include several day meetings – hosted at schools across the school district and featuring a wide variety of information and activities. Participants will have conversations with high school seniors, visit a Family Literacy class, sample an ACT test, create their own school budget and spend time in LPS classrooms, as well as tour The Career Academy and one of our Education Centers.

LPS will accept applicants for this no-charge public outreach program on a first-come, first-served basis – however, participants are asked to be willing and able to commit the time needed (see schedule below).  If you would like to participate, please register by July 31, 2018 and send the following information to Julie Dansky,

  •        Your name, street address, email address and phone number.
  •         A brief explanation of why you are interested in attending the Academy (couple sentences).
