“Our new regional structure will strengthen connections and pathways between schools, which will benefit students as they move through the grade levels,” said Dr. Goodloe-Johnson. “These regional meetings provide an opportunity for me and my staff to listen to ideas and concerns as we strive to ensure excellence for every student. I also hope that the meetings serve to strengthen connections between schools and families in the region. I look forward to listening and learning at each of these gatherings.”  

Interpretation services will be provided at each of the meetings (see below), and light refreshments will be served. Childcare will not be available, but books, drawing and coloring supplies will be provided.
