Lincoln Public Schools Giving Citizens a ‘Behind The Scenes’

Lincoln Public Schools is inviting Lincoln citizens to participate in its annual Citizens Education Academy, a series of monthly gatherings that include hands-on 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 feature a variety of information and activities.

Participants will have conversations with high school seniors, visit a Family Literacy class, create their own school budget and spend time in LPS classrooms, as well as tour The Career Academy and one of the Education Centers.

LPS will accept applicants for this free public outreach program on a first-come, first-served basis – however, participants are asked to be willing and able to commit the necessary time. Applicants should register before July 31st, 2019.
