The Governing Board meets once a month on Wednesday Nights. At this time, elected teachers, parents, and community members come together to discuss the school budget and hear updates from the principal. The Pilot School Atonomies as well as state law guide the Board's work in terms of budget, calendar/schedules, curriculum, and governance.

LAPS fundraising and donations goes toward the Lee Academy Pilot School Foundation which is overseen by the treasurer of the Governing Board. Funds can be used for social events like the year end party and enrichment activities like field trips.
We raise funds because as a small K0-3rd Grade Elementary School that is heavily Black and Brown, the disparity of money and access compared to other schools can be wide and inequitable. Field trips, supplemental programming and tools help to round out our children’s education. The Family Council has supported and assisted in events in the school including:
-Refrigerator Replacement for Faculty/Staff
-Prizes for Talent Show
-End of the Year Party
-Teacher Appreciation Day/Week
-Kid Movies for parents who need a break
We will continue to strive to help LAPS’ students and teachers. Your help and support makes it possible.
