Meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of the month at 2:45pm (via Zoom until further notice). All meetings are open to the public! Attendance is welcomed and encouraged. The LSLC addresses all issues big and small regarding the Colfax learning environment, student achievement, hiring, budget, policies, programs, procedures and parental involvement.

LSLC is the decision–making body for improving the quality of education and promoting overall student achievement at Colfax. LSLC also participates in administrative, operational and budgetary decisions impacting basic school functions.

Members are elected at the beginning of each school year for a two year term. Watch the Colfax Connection for the application deadline in the first few weeks of school if you are interested in serving on LSLC! Nomination Form
