CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Dr. Heath Morrison says the new task forces will meet soon, and will be open to the public.
A statement released Tuesday reads as follows: The 22 task forces charged with providing recommendations to support the strategic goals of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will begin meeting this month. CMS has planned for public participation in this effort from the start. Each task force will be led by a CMS employee and a community member and includes about 15 members from the district and the community. There will also be numerous opportunities for CMS employees and the community at large to be involved in the work. A community input button on the CMS website homepage enables the public to provide input to any task force. Meeting minutes from each task force will be posted on the CMS Task Forces site on the CMS website homepage.
A task force survey will launch in February seeking public input in two to three key areas per task force. Also, beginning in late February, town hall meetings will be held and will include representatives from each task force for open dialogue and input.
"These task forces are charged with coming up with recommendations in support of our promise to serve every child, every day for a better tomorrow. This is difficult work, and it will take the best thinking of our employees and our community partners to advance it successfully," said Superintendent Heath Morrison.
"It has always been our goal to conduct this work inclusively, and in a way that both engenders public trust and fosters the kind of free exchange of ideas that will lead to the best outcomes."
The initial organizing meeting for each task force will be open only to members, and all subsequent meetings will be open to the public. The task forces will share their recommendations in June.
The task forces initially drew criticism because of closed-door meetings. You can read more by clicking here.
