My understanding is that there was a bond that was passed which will allow for the eventual creation of the school that you are talking about.

I don't know if they are going to redistrict now or if they plan to wait until the mega school is built.

How about looking to the state and find out why they are keeping the money that is due to this school district. It is a fact that the state is keeping money that the Feds pass to the schools because of the base. In all other states they district that has the base gets the money because of the lost taxes on housing. This state has decided it is better to share the wealth with other districts that do not have the bases. Maybe we should get together and sue the state for the money that is due this district.
Good points and definately something that needs to be asked to any candidate running for Gov.

I don't know if we can sue them in order to get the money - but everyone needs to call the Govs office this weekend and tell him that we need this money in Alamogordo.

We are having a Community Meeting on Monday the 6th of July at the Lion's Club at 6:30 pm. The agenda is to inform the community of the actions and information we have gained so far. Also to discuss the plan of action for the APS Open Forum meeting on July 9th concerning High Rolls School closing.
Please be there to help support your community and our school.

Does anyone know the time of the school board meeting today. I can't find it anywhere?
On the aps website it says 5:30 a.m.
somehow I don't think everybody got up that early to hold a meeting. I wonder if a misprint on their website will violate the public meeting notice requirement.

Mrcritters,

It seems that Elemental may not have refreshed the website this morning.

I know that I had to hit refresh in order to see the postponment.

I would recommend that someone in the Administration Office print up a notice to post on the doors this afternoon.
