  • MESSAGE FROM SUPT. EWERT REGARDING NO SCHOOL FRIDAY APRIL 27

    Dear Littleton Public Schools Parents and Guardians: As you may be aware, teachers across Colorado are attending rallies at the Colorado State Capitol later this week to call for increased education funding.  Many districts in our area decided late last week to close school on either Thursday, April 26 or Friday, April 27. We have been monitoring teacher absentee requests carefully over the last few days.  As of today, teacher absences in LPS for this coming Friday, April 27, have increased significantly.  We will be unable to provide adequate substitute teacher supervision to ensure student safety and productive learning that day.  Therefore, Littleton Public Schools is cancelling all classes for Friday, April 27, 2018. (Charter schools will communicate with their parent communities individually.)  While no students will attend school, it remains a work day for all LPS employees, and any employee absence must be taken according to district policy. The LPS Board of Education and I have been working closely with legislators throughout this legislative session for solutions that restore education funding to our schools and ensure our students and our educators receive the supports they deserve. We sincerely appreciate the hard work our legislators are doing on our behalf. That being said, there is more work to be done to provide adequate funding for public schools in Colorado. All voices play a vital role in this effort. Please know the decision to cancel classes is never taken lightly. We recognize that this presents challenges and inconveniences for many of our families, and for this we apologize. If we have adequate numbers of staff available, elementary School Age Child Care programs will remain open all day on Friday, April 27. Students must be registered in the SACC program to attend, and parents must contact their school’s SACC program no later than the end of the day on Tuesday, April 24 to request  a full day of child care for Friday. SACC will notify parents no later than the end of the day on Wednesday, April 25 regarding their ability to provide child care on Friday, April 27th. Program participation will be at the full day rate. To clarify, if you had already signed up for childcare on Friday, April 27, given this change, you must still confirm your needs for childcare no later than the end of the day tomorrow. At this time, we expect all high school athletic competitions to take place on Friday, April 27 as scheduled. However, please look for news from your child’s school about any athletic/activity postponements or cancellations. Because we have not yet needed any snow days this year, we will not have to make up this school day later in the spring. Thank you for your understanding and support.   Sincerely, Brian Ewert Superintendent

  • Call to Action: Please Contact Your Legislators for Increased K-12 Funding

    Dear Littleton Public Schools Community: I want to let you know of an important opportunity to make your voice heard at the Colorado Capitol.   An ad hoc coalition of school districts from across the state has come together to launch the Kids Matter Too Coalition. This statewide coalition of parents and educators is calling on lawmakers to ensure Colorado’s growth benefits families by increasing funding for schools. Colorado school districts are coping with a teacher shortage crisis, shrinking funds for special education and inadequate mental health services. Next week, the state budget projections will be released and many expect a surplus. Lawmakers will be making decisions about what to do with this additional funding, and Kids Matter Too Coalition members from every corner of the state are calling for additional funding to benefit students. Consider: Colorado currently ranks 42nd in the nation in per pupil funding and 50th in the nation in teacher salary competitiveness. Next year, Colorado public schools will need to fill 3,000 vacant positions. This will be difficult with such low teacher salaries. Funding additional mental health services is more than just a resource to help students succeed; it’s a student safety issue, as well. Years of budget cuts have decimated the ranks of school counselors and mental health professionals. Our students and families need more mental health support in our schools. Only Oklahoma and Arizona spend less than Colorado on services for students with special needs. The federal and state government together only cover about 30% of the costs of these expensive services, which leaves individual school districts responsible to cover the remaining 70% with the dwindling funding they have.   We often hear in the news about the strength of the state’s economy, but our schools are still reeling from drastic cuts during the recession. LPS alone has been shortchanged $101 million since 2008. Our students deserve better, and now the Legislature may be in a position to return some of this funding to its public schools. I urge you to contact your legislators in the next few days to tell them how important it is to increase funding for K-12 education in Colorado. Kids Matter Too provides valuable resources to help you connect with elected officials.   The 2018 Legislative Session is moving quickly, so please stay connected to these important issues: Visit the kidsmattertoo.org website Like Kids Matter Too on Facebook Follow @Kids_MatterToo on Twitter Help us secure critical funding for the students here in LPS and across Colorado. Your voice matters! Thank you for your continued partnership and support.   Sincerely, Brian Ewert Superintendent Littleton Public Schools
