LPS hears suggestions from community

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Lawton Public Schools held its first of three meetings regarding possible bond issues Wednesday.

These meetings are open to the public and are a way for parents to air ideas of how to improve the school district.

Lawton Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Tom Deighan said it was important to have a third party listen to the community's concerns so school officials don't run the meetings.

One parent said attending this and other meetings is crucial in helping the education process.

"I get to have input in my child's education,” Cristal Dorsey said, “and I want my child to have the best education possible in the best environment possible and that's one of the most important things for me to see him succeed.”

Two more meetings are set for next week. One will be at 5 p.m. Monday at Macarthur Middle School and the other at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Eisenhower Middle School.

For parents who can't make it to the meetings, a link to a poll will be posted on the Lawton Public Schools website Thursday regarding suggestions to improve the schools.
