BOE to hold community listening sessions
Board of Education to hold community listening sessions
Posted on 03/16/2012
​The Floyd County Board of Education and the Local School Governance Teams for schools in the local school system will hold community listening sessions in the next few weeks to help school leaders to gain a better perspective of the wishes of parents and the community regarding the future of our schools. Meetings will be held at each high school in the community and will involve the Local School Governance Team from each school in the attendance area at each meeting. The first two meetings will be held next week in the Armuchee and Model communities. The Armuchee meeting will be held in the auditorium at Armuchee High School on Tuesday, March 20. The Model meeting will be in the Model High School auditorium on Thursday, March 22. All of the area listening sessions will begin at 6:30 PM and will last for approximately an hour-and-a-half. 

These listening sessions will be an opportunity for parents and community members to discuss items of interest regarding our school system and the local schools with school leaders. Everyone is invited to attend the listening session planned for your area. At these sessions, participants will discuss successes of our schools and what we do well, challenges that we face and areas we would like to improve and the opportunities that may be on the horizon for our school system and schools. 

The Local School Governance Teams for each school in the attendance area at the meeting will lead a small group discussion for their school community. The local schools participating in each meeting will be the schools that feed into the high schools in each attendance area. Each group will then report on their discussions to the Floyd County Board of Education at the end of the meeting. This will give the Local School Governance Team information they can use as they work to develop school improvement plans for their local school and provide the Board of Education with direction as they set policy for the school system. 

The Local School Governance Teams are made up of the school principal, two faculty members, two parents and two community leaders. The groups are the local school leadership teams designated as a part of the system’s move to a charter system governance structure. The members of each Local School Governance Team are to represent their constituents in the decision making process at the local school level. Board Listening Session meeting dates and locations:
