Board Meeting Highlights from October 24, 2023

Highlights from the October 24, 2023, joint NTPS School Board-Lacey City Council meeting. The City Council and the School Board received updates on:

  • The 2023-24 Compassionate Community project, a joint initiative between the city, the school district, and Lacey South Sound Chamber. This year’s theme is Culture of Kindness, and we are aiming to celebrate 100,000 acts of kindness in our community this school year! Report your acts of kindness.
  • The city and district partnership that supports school safety by placing School Resource Officers in each of our schools, providing training and school building safety assessments, and ensuring 24/7 collaboration and communication between the Lacey Police Department and North Thurston Public Schools.
  • Two proposed NTPS levies, which will be on the February 13, 2024, ballot: A replacement Educational Programs & Operations Levy and a Capital Levy for Safety, Technology, and Facilities Improvements.

The board and administrators sit at a large table with the Lacey City Council and Mayor.
