DAAC and CPA Ballot Information Forums
DAAC and CPA hosted two ballot information forums where a panel answered questions about the D38 November ballot questions. The panel was made up of LPSD school board members, administrators, a security expert, and an architectural expert.
The forums took place on September 13, 2018 and October 11, 2018 (watch on YouTube), in the Learning Center of the LPSD Administration Building.
We apologize for the technical difficulties evident in the October 11, 2018 forum recording. The last few minutes of the event did not record.
