BCPS to Host Annual “Conversation With The District” Event Series

Tuesday, October 06, 2015

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) announces its annual Conversation with the District series of town hall-style meetings aimed at gaining input and feedback from parents, students, staff and community members.  

The Conversation with the District series was created as a follow up to the Superintendent’s Listening Tour in 2011. Public input and feedback at that time helped to establish a three-year Strategic Plan to create the road map to ensure that every student receives the very best instruction and education.  

This year, Conversation with the District continues its pursuit to engage the community in discussions that will constantly challenge the District to better prepare today’s students to be successful in tomorrow’s world. Community feedback will be used to further the District’s current goals and priorities, as it focuses on developing the next three-year Strategic Plan.

“Community feedback plays a major role in our decision-making process,” said Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “These important conversations allow us to promote transparency and build trust, as a comprehensive framework that guides the improvement of District schools.”

The Conversation with the District event series takes place across the seven School Board member districts. Parents, students, staff and community members are encouraged to provide input about the District’s successes and challenges. There is no fee to attend and free parking is available at each location. Registration for each event begins at 6 p.m., with the conversation beginning at 6:30 p.m.
