LCS Board of Education approves contract with Lapeer Educational Support Personnel

Lapeer Community Schools is pleased to announce ratification of a new contract with the Lapeer Educational Support Personnel (LESP) union. The LESP represents the District’s paraprofessionals and the majority of our secretarial staff. Last month, members of the District’s bargaining team met with the leadership of the LESP to finalize the terms of a two-year contract. The contract includes several modifications to working requirements and compensation structures. The LCS Board of Education unanimously approved the contract at a special meeting on Thursday night.

“We are pleased to have come to an agreement that is amenable to both parties, and we look forward to maintaining a strong working relationship into the future,” said LCS Superintendent Matt Wandrie. “As a district, we remain committed to the process, bargaining in good faith and always seeking new and innovative ways to compensate our employees, even in the midst of hard times.”

To date, the District has ratified contracts with six of seven bargaining units without wage or salary schedule reductions. Each unit bargains independently with the District on the terms of their contract.

Lapeer High School Jazz Band to Perform at Michigan Music Conference

LPS_v2_CMYKLAPEER, Michigan — The Lapeer High School (LHS) Jazz Band will perform at the prestigious Michigan Music Conference at 2:30 p.m. on January 21 in the Ambassador Ballroom of the Amway Grand Hotel. The students are under the direction of LHS jazz band instructor, Mr. Daniel R. Hundt. To be considered for this performance, instructors of school bands, orchestras and choirs from Michigan must submit a live recording and a rigorous application. A panel of judges listen blindly to the recordings. When top applicants are selected, the panel reviews letters of recommendation and success history of the band, such as festival scores. The top applicants are then invited to perform. Lapeer is one of only two Jazz Bands selected statewide.  The band has spent many hours selecting and rehearsing music for this special concert.

“This is a tremendous honor, and is a testament to the quality of our entire band program,” Hundt said. “The bands featured at this conference represent the very best of Michigan public schools. Words cannot express how proud I am of these students.”

The performance is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased online at www.michiganmusicconference.org. Tickets are also available on site at the DeVos box office on the day of the performance, one hour before the event.

“Lapeer Community Schools has a longstanding tradition of excellence in the performing arts,” said LCS Superintendent Matt Wandrie. “Our bands have competed at the highest levels across the state and consistently represented our community with the highest standards of quality for teaching and learning.”

The Michigan Music Conference features school ensemble concerts, performances from Honors Choirs, All-State Bands, and Orchestras; sessions for in-service and pre-service teachers; professional development clinics; hands-on technology workshops; and association membership and business meetings. The 2016 attendance included approximately 9,000 teachers, administrators, students, speakers, and guests.
