The public forum was the fourth meeting of the first phase for the review titled “The Case for Continuous Improvement: A Comprehensive Review of CMS.” The review is addressing policies guiding district operations such as magnet schools, transportation, boundaries, projected enrollments, use of facilities and funding to align decision-making of the district’s Strategic Plan 2014: Teaching Our Way to the Top.
After a brief overview of the process, the attendees broke into seven groups to offer their opinions and suggestions based on the district’s guiding principles.
“We saw a lot of common threads at tonight’s meeting, but we also heard some unique, new feedback,” said Board Chairperson Eric C. Davis. “This feedback will be discussed at the Board’s next work session.”
After the breakout sessions were complete, the attendees then met back as a large group to hear feedback from the seven small groups.
