LUDINGTON — Parents of Ludington High School students have an opportunity to have input through the newly formed Parent Advisory Committee. Any parent of a high school student is welcome to attend the monthly meeting. The group recently met on Monday, Nov. 7 with 13 parents in attendance. 

Principal Dan Mesyar discusses topics with the group.

“This group is another opportunity for parents to have input in their child’s education,” Principal Dan Mesyar said. “This is not a decision-making committee — that is the board of education’s role — but the input that is given during this committee helps the school’s administration and board of education understand the concerns of our stakeholders.” 

The mission of the group is to increase communication, give advice and assistance to school administration, discuss topics related to the high school and research best practices and how other schools perform. 

During the most recent meeting, parents discussed topics that were raised during the October meeting. They included parent-teacher conferences, bussing for athletics, communicating clearly the difference between AP and dual enrollment courses, lighting for temporary parking lot, and getting school information on the school’s website and web calendar. 

Mesyar also gave parents an update on the secondary complex construction. Parents then prioritized the next round of topics they would like to address. The top two topics discussed at the next meeting will be differentiated teaching and school safety. 

Mesyar said the meeting dates are decided by the parents who have been involved in the committee. He will email options to parents when they would like to meet again the next month. Parents interested in being part of the committee can call LHS office at 231-845-3880 or email jvandervest@lasd.net.
