“We are really pleased that so many people have attended our forums and shared their opinions,” said Eric C. Davis, chairperson of the Board. “Such strong turnout indicates a lot of interest in our public schools. We want to consider what we heard at the forums sooner, rather than later, in the process – so we’re adjusting the work-session format to help us do that.”
The Board is reviewing its guiding principles, which are used to formulate policy for transportation, magnet schools, diversity, facilities use, school boundaries and locations, and student assignment. The review is intended to help the Board prepare for the 2011-2012 budget process, which could require closure of some schools, and also to be sure that the principles and the Board’s policies are aligned.
The Board will hold two more public forums: one at South Mecklenburg High School June 24 and a second at Hopewell High School on June 28. Both will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The remaining two work sessions will be held at the Government Center (Room 267) from noon to 3 p.m. June 28 and at the Education Center (Board Room) from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. June 29.
