Student-Led Dialogue at Next Gen Engage Town Hall Series

Tuesday, April 25, 2017
 
WHO:    
School Board Members, Superintendent Robert W. Runcie, Students, District Staff, Parents, Local Elected Officials and Community Members

WHAT:
The Next Gen Engage town hall series provides an opportunity for students to share their thoughts and ideas about what happens in their schools and classrooms. This is the sixth in a series of seven Next Gen Engage eveUnknown.jpegnts taking place throughout the District.

WHEN:
Thursday, April 27, 2017
Speaker registration begins at 5 p.m.
Student engagement begins at 5:30 p.m.
 
                
WHERE:
South Broward High School
1901 N Federal Highway
Hollywood, FL 33020

WHY:    
The Next Gen Engage town hall series evolves from the 2011 Superintendent’s Listening Tour, which brought the community together to share concerns, and Conversations With The District, which moved the discussion from community concerns to actively engaging      stakeholders in open dialogue. This year, engagement is geared to student-led discussions that challenge the District in its vision to prepare today’s students to be successful in tomorrow’s world.

The final Next Gen Engage event for this school year will take place at Plantation High School on Monday, May 15, 2017.
