Andalusia schools seeking input

Published 12:12 am Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Anyone interested in the future of Andalusia City Schools is invited to join the board of education at a community meeting discussion session at 6 p.m. Mon., Nov. 4, in the Andalusia City Hall Auditorium.

Organizers hope that parents, teachers, administrators, support employees, representatives of business and industry, government and area residents will attend the meeting, which is part of the system’s development of a five-year strategic plan.

“This community forum event is designed to give students, parents, employees, and community members opportunities to discuss the future of our communities and to take action to improve education for every student in the Andalusia City School System,” said David McCalman, Andalusia City Board of Education president. “Every person can make a difference.”

Superintendent Ted Watson said, “We are looking forward to the collaboration and discussion at the community meeting. The participation of parents, community leaders, and interested residents from all areas of the community is critical to the success of our planning.”

Following a brief overview presentation, participants will break into small discussion groups to share ideas about short and long-range plans for the school.
