Durham Public Schools has planned a series of four Kitchen Table Conversations in an effort to enhance our school district’s magnet schools. The discussion at these sessions will focus on magnet schools and student assignment. Dicussions around magnet schools and choice have dominated a great deal of the public conversation about our public schools this year following the magnet plan presented at the end of 2011, which was largely scrapped following significant public pressure. Your input, as part of the Durham community, whether you are a parent, teacher, or neighbor, is essential to these discussions. Please make time to attend one of these sessions.
There is also a link to submit your ideas/opinions/concerns directly to DPS without attending a conversation. However, I hope many community members will choose to attend and participate in constructive dialogue at each session.
Here are the dates and locations
Tuesday, March 13, 6 pm at Southern High School (800 Clayton Rd)
Thursday, March 15, 6 pm at Northern School (117 Tom Wilkinson Rd)
