Comprehensive review community forums begin June 21

The community is invited to attend a series of forums on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education’s comprehensive review of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.

Titled “The Case for Continuous Improvement: A Comprehensive Review of CMS,” the review will address policies guiding such district operations as magnet schools, transportation, boundaries, projected enrollments, use of facilities and funding.
The community forums will be held on the following dates:

Monday, June 21 – 6:30-8 p.m.
Harding University High (auditorium)
2001 Alleghany Street

Tuesday, June 22 – 6 p.m.
Government Center (during Board meeting)
600 E. 4th Street

Thursday, June 24 – 6:30-8 p.m.
South Mecklenburg High (auditorium)
8900 Park Road

Monday, June 28 – 6:30-8 p.m.
Hopewell High (auditorium)
11530 Beatties Ford Road

The community forums will be open to the public so that Board members and district staff can hear public input on the guiding principles used in decisions across CMS.

The review, expected to be completed by November, is intended to help the Board align decision-making in multiple areas with the goals of the district’s strategic plan as well as take a consistent, strategic approach to individual issues.
The Board will also hold three workshops before July 4 to discuss the information collected from the public. For more information, visit the CMS Web site.
