If you have questions and/or concerns about anything regarding Clayton County Public Schools, here is another opportunity to bring them directly to the source.
Superintendent Edmond Heatley is hosting a series of public forums throughout September. The purpose is to give attendees an opportunity to interact with, voice concerns, ask questions of and make comments directly to the Superintendent. “I really want to know what our residents have to say about public education in general and our school district specifically,” says Heatley.
The first will be held this Thursday, Sept. 3 at Mundy’s Mill High School (9652 Fayetteville Road, Jonesboro) and the remaining schedule is as follows:
Each forum runs from 6-7:30 PM and interpreters will be available.
Will you attend a forum when it comes to your local school? If so, what questions and/or concerns will you share with Superintendent Heatley about CCPS?
