(Loudoun Education Alliance of Parents)
2012 - 2013
The Loudoun Education Alliance of Parents (LEAP) is a non-partisan network that promotes interaction between parents, teachers, School Board members, and members of the Loudoun County Public Schools Administrative Team. Its mission is to provide an active forum to discuss and share the latest educational thoughts, plans, and ideas. LEAP meets each month with a relevant panel program presentation and monthly updates from the LCPS Superintendent, as well as various members of the Loudoun County School Board and/or the Board of Supervisors. Each LCPS school elects a delegate from its PTA, PTO, or PTSO to attend the LEAP meetings, however, members of the community are always welcome to attend.
