Five members of the Langston Hughes Academy board gathered on April 24 but in the absence of several members, including finance committee member Paul Pechon, did not formally convene a monthly meeting.

The school’s chief financial officer, Adrian Morgan, delivered a brief management report highlighting positive early returns from the first phase of the centralized application process – OneApp – newly inaugurated by the Recovery School District.

With students on spring break but some teachers in the classroom for staff development, Langston Hughes will open its parking lot to Jazz Fest attendees to garner revenue.

Chief executive Officer, Jay Altman, called spring break a “recharge” for students and especially teachers.  The year has seen its share of schedule shuffling in an effort to balance work and time off, thereby “sustaining our staff,” Altman said.

A Lens reporter was the only audience member.
