LPS made good on a campaign promise

LPS made good on a campaign promise Thursday with the first meeting of a committee organized to oversee expenditures of funds coming from a bond program renewed by voters in April.

Fourteen committee members met with Dr. Tom Deighan Thursday to review the proposal and hear how the district plans to spend funds from the sale of the first round of bonds.

At this point, funds have been used to pay fees for the sale of the bonds and purchase computer software. New computers for teachers have been ordered and engineering plans are being developed for replacement of the MacArthur Middle School roof and an upgrade of the Hugh Bish Elementary HVAC system.

Willie B. Smith Jr. & Ed Petersen were elected co-chairs of the committee, which will receive monthly finance reports from LPS. The committee will meet every six months to discuss the status of projects and prepare a report for the Lawton Board of Education.

The committee's first report was presented at last night's board of education meeting.

New Principal at Crosby Park

At this afternoon's meeting of the Lawton Board of Education, Dana Moore was selected as the new principal at Crosby Park Elementary, filling the vacancy left by the death of Resa Harvick earlier this month.

Mrs. Moore is currently a kindergarten teacher at Woodland Hills Elementary. She is a former LPS Teacher of the Year and was a finalist for Oklahoma Teacher of the Year.
