We believe that education is a collaborative effort between students, families, and educators. At The Lee Academy School, we are committed to fostering strong relationships with our students' families and the broader community. We offer a variety of ways for families and community members to get involved and support our school.
The School Parent Council advocates for the students and the school, elects representatives to sit on the School Site Council, raises funds to support school activities, takes a leadership role in promoting parent engagement at the school, and promotes an environment of understanding and common purpose among parents and teachers.

Expand Quality, Effective, Inclusive Schools and Programs Throughout BPS
SpEdPAC is working with the District to increase inclusive opportunities throughout the District for special education students. The law requires that students with disabilities must be educated, to the maximum extent possible, in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) with their non-disabled peers.
In the School Year of 2015-2016, the BPS Office of English Learners launched the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) initiative with the vision of creating for creating a multicultural and multiethnic, parent-led committee comprised of ML parents and community members whose task is to provide recommendations to school and district officials in regard to programs and services provided to Multilanguage students.
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.
