After several months of discussion and planning for the upcoming school year, the Auburn Enlarged City School District has planned a series of community forums to get feedback from the public.

Superintendent Constance Evelyn will sit with members from the community to discuss the district's plans and goals for next year in a listening session that encourages two-way dialogue. She also plans to use these meetings as a way to share the key points of the district's new education plan, "Transforming Teaching and Learning."

"The idea behind these community-based forums begins with a straight-forward premise that our community is rich with ideas, full of great people who yearn for engagement and connection to the plans, policies and funding that shape our children's lives," Evelyn said in a press release.

Each forum will be about an hour long and will give parents, taxpayers and other stakeholders the opportunity to give input on the district's plans for the upcoming academic year. Evelyn will also seek feedback from the community regarding how the public feels these goals can best be supported and achieved.

"These community listening sessions will offer unique events for the community to share their visions of success regarding the district as well as offer suggestions," Evelyn said in a statement.

Evelyn will also talk with the public about the method they would prefer for receiving information from the district about news and upcoming events.

For more information on the listening forums, contact the district at 255-8822.
