Community Advisory Council holds meeting

Communal roles in upcoming LTCAC gathering


Community relations and inclusion in discussing district wide topics at LT is very prominent and makes its appearance through LT Community Advisory Council (LTCAC). The advisory incorporates numerous different points of view from the surrounding area by leading discussions finding solutions to district issues. Community members, parents, and a select group of students are allowed to join, including advisory member Lochlan McElroy ‘24.

“I’m very interested in participating in the running of the school, so I’m always happy to attend opportunities to help decide policy [and] forward motion at LT,” McElroy said. “Meetings like this are definitely influential to parents and the community, as many topics relating to community issues are discussed there.”

Topics are tailored to all groups more specifically towards LT students, staff, and community members, administrative assistant to the Superintendent Marilyn Zydlo said. With the first meeting of the year largely regarding the application of Technology and AI at LT, advancements on such topics allowed McElroy along with many other members to contribute to the meeting.

“Everyone who attends contributes to the conversation,” Zydlo said. “There are over 125 people who are a part of LTCAC. This group consist[s] of parents, students, staff and alumni.Not everyone attends every meeting, but everyone who does attend sits at tables and all contribute.”

Meeting subjects vary as each gathering discusses a specific topic with a heavy emphasis on early year material, McElroy said. Topics discussed are chosen by Superintendent Brian Waterman and the administration team with the next meeting working to strengthen bonds between schools and partners at LT. 

“Community Partnerships and Associate School Collaboration is the upcoming topic,” McElroy said. “I think we’re hoping to see more collaboration with associate schools and our partners, as well as come up with ways to strengthen community outreach and partnerships, as well as making the transition from middle school to LT even more smooth and less stressful.”

Taking place Jan. 31 in room 251 at north campus, the next meeting is open for members of the community and parents to attend.

    So proud of my son Lochlan and the staff at LTHS for giving students so many platforms to share their voices!
